OMG! Blush is in a book!

On the 7th of June 2012 I received an email from Annabel Beeforth of Love My Dress titled ‘Style Me Vintage – Weddings’, Book Photo-shoot // Dalston Heights, East London // 25-27 June 2012‏’.

My heart suddenly jumped as I opened it…..

 The reason I am contacting you is because I would like to offer you the chance of being involved with this photoshoot, because I’m such a huge fan of your work, and in the hope that your work with in the book, which is due to be distributed widely, will assist in raising your profile.  We were originally going to focus purely on fashion for the shoot and use existing imagery to showcase detail and decor ideas etc, but I strongly feel we will be missing a great opportunity if we do this, to showcase the talent and creative genius of some of the UK’s best event stylists/stationers/cake designers etc.’

 I was so excited to have been asked to be involved in such a project. Blush were assigned to the 1960′s and 1970′s eras and it was so much fun researching different designs and styles for the shoot.

The shoot took place at Dalston House and the amazing Joanna Brown worked her magic on the photography.

Ronni & Matt, June 2012

I first met Ronni and Matt in 2011 when they travelled from London to meet me at Blush HQ in Farnham. They arrived bursting with ideas and the very stunning Cain Manor booked as their wedding venue on the 23rd of June 2012.

Ronni went for a romantic vintage feel to complement the bijou venue. We used blowsy full blown peonies, white sweet peas, pink hydrangea and soft vintage roses such as Quicksand, Memory Lane, Old Dutch and Lady Bombastic. Ronni and Matt also decided not to use too much greenery in their arrangements, so we just stuck with a slight touch of pittosporum to break the design up a bit.

We used cut glass bowls, vases and cake stands to give that vintage look again to the tables. All were low arrangements and worked really well on round tables in the main room. Cain Manor also lends itself to taller arrangements such as candelabras or trumpet vases. The space and light in that room is perfect for these type of designs too.

Jam Jars along the fireplace and windowsills filled with small bunches of sweet peas, Lady Bombastic roses and herbs added colour and scent to the reception room of Cain Manor.

Vintage roses and peonies.

Polly Alexandre took the most stunning pictures of our flowers, picking out the beautiful vintage tones of each bloom, especially my favourite rose, Old Dutch, highlighting its lovely light lilac tinted petals which are stunning.

I’m sure you will agree this wedding is super yummy and so are Ronni and Matt! Enjoy!
