Weddings and flowers are like peas and carrots. They just go hand in hand but what about wearable flowers? What comes to mind when I say wearable flowers is probably a floral crown. These super boho style crowns are often seen on sweet flower girls, bridesmaids, and brides alike but wearing flowers on your wedding day can be so much more.
I was first introduced to this concept a few years ago. The mother of the bride wore a metal cuff with flowers attached rather than carrying a bouquet.
Over the past few years I have seen more unique uses of floral wear in the wedding industry. From earrings to fascinators and necklaces made out of fresh blooms. When I approached Gaye about the idea of putting this shoot together, she mentioned wanting to push the concept even further with the idea of floral tattoos.
Having seen brides struggle with massively heavy bouquets over the last few years, I love the idea of leaving their hands free too now hold a loved ones hand while still keeping fresh flowers in the feel and look of the day.
We selected Belfair as a location to highlight the floral blooms and Blush Bridal provided beautiful dresses that could stand up to the statement pieces that Gaye created. Part of the inspiration for this shoot came from Susan Mcleary’s new book and floral jewelry. With that inspiration, I knew that I wanted to at least capture a few shots at Belfair’s famous tree lined drive.
It was fantastic getting to work with Rustic to Ritz Events on this as she pulled models together along with hair and makeup. I look forward to doing more editorial work like this again in the future.
