When this winter inspired shoot landed in our inbox, we just knew our readers would love it. We spoke to the florist, Rhoda Bouaziz from Rhoda Louisa Floral Events to find out more: “This is about a journey and taking the positives from an unusual word event that has struck us all in many ways. Reading the book The Secret by Rhonda Byrne and watching the movie Dare to Dream inspired me to find like-minded suppliers to collaborate with that also put their heart and soul into their work. Our romantic winter shoot highlights these inspirational people who came together with their vibrant energy and skills to create naturally styled scenes. Great Fosters provided the fabulous backdrop to overflowing British greenery, a pre-worn iconic gown, and clothing fit for the most peacock-like grooms, creating an anthology of ideas for those planning their nuptials. Trying to be as environmentally friendly as possible, naturally, I decided to use foam-free, British farmed flowers and sustainable techniques, including some charity shop finds! I’m ever so grateful to Great Fosters, all the creative talents, models and amazing suppliers for agreeing to work with me on this project.”
Kerry J Tuckett from Very Me adds: “The dress is Liesel by Vera Wang, soon to be dyed and recreated into a cocktail dress. We removed the tulle at the top, lace from the lower godet, and more than a hundred metres of crin, nets and tulle to allow an ethereal feel to the movement of the dress. A simple two boned petticoat from www.jupon.com gave the model room to move with all these layers. I knew as soon as it landed in my workroom that Sophie would be the perfect model for it. With Rhoda’s ideas for the shoot, I was determined that the man’s clothing needed to reflect her vision, but also be sympatico of the grandeur of Great Fosters. Anthony Blay had a great selection to choose from. Clashing patterns being very much in vogue on the catwalk, the dark grey check, the floral and fruit patterned shirt were a must. Even the tie has a jacquard weave, rich burgundy shoes topped off the look, purely a mistake, the white socks seem to be the correct thing, when seen all together. Overall, Adam looked young and on-trend. The second suit is more suave and sophisticated, but still, the floral theme shows that it’s not only the bride who can be individual on the day.”
