We absolutely love working alongside Nicola Dixon on styled shoots, she always manages to scope out the most incredible locations.
This weekend’s Lake District adventure, was no exception. The autumnal tones of Blea Tarn, and it’s rugged, baron landscape had our creative juices well and truly flowing.
For the bouquet, inspiration was taken from the vast and impressive terrain of Blea Tarn. We incorporated burnt orange Dahlias, brown dried Hydrangea heads and pine cones, depicting the surrounding nature and habitat. Foliage was cool in tone, with Eucalyptus, Moss, Catkin twigs and Olive leaf, reflective of the ice cold temperatures and mist covered hills.
Scabias seed heads and air plants added interest, while mossed twigs and branches provided architecture and asymmetry, representative of the hostile and unpredictable nature of the surrounding environment.
The bouquet was finished with exquisitely graceful silk ribbon from the wonderful Lancaster and Cornish.
Nicola, our beautiful Bride wore a wild crown of mixed foliage, composed of Olive leaf and dried Hydrangea. This complimented the shoot aesthetic whilst not taking away from the statement bouquet.
Our groom, the lovely Michael wore a simple rustic buttonhole of Olive leaf and Scabias seed head, tied off with grey felt ribbon.
The happy real life couple and autumnal florals juxtaposed the vast, wild almost melancholy backdrop, perfectly captured by Nicola, creating a simply beautiful and unique winter editorial.
Thanks again Nicola Dixon Photography, we cannot wait to see what you come up with next!
