Woodland Bridal Inspiration Shoot

I am so lucky to know such  incredibly talented people who inspire me. Together we decided to do a stylized woodland shoot.

I sourced bright vibrant flowers that were in season. I love the fact that peonies open and their colour changed throughout the day. I also liked the contrast of the bright flowers in the forest.

It was an incredible experience being behind the scenes and such a fun photo shoot to be on. There was a fog machine, glitter cannons, and an abundance of fresh petals. What more could you ask for?

Here are some of my favourite shots. You can see more photos and read more about the shoot here:

"Wow. Bywater Flowers really brightened up our wedding. Cressida made sure she understood exactly what we wanted with our 'colonial cottage' theme and nailed it. With Cressida's expert guidance we helped put the vases and buttonholes together. Thanks so much Cressida for putting the "extra" into our special day."

Flowers: roses, calla lily, Lisianthus, Eucalyptus and love-in-a-mist (Nigella)

Flower crowns and bouquets - lavender and misty (Limonium)
