Behind the scenes at a Wedding flowers shoot.
My basket and i headed once more to the studios of the ever fabulous team at RGBdigital for a Wedding Flowers magazine shoot.
Boxes labelled Matthew Williamson samples, were being readied for photographs too.
Andy was photogrpahing the flowers, and i learnt a valuable lesson in lighting. The arrangement made in a garden at dusk looked warm and rich and deep pinks (top picture) but against a white background and studio lights looked yellow (bottom picture) Next time i am going to campaign for a background of weathered oak.
I also learnt that it takes a whole side of A4 for me to write down the ingredients list of the arrangement. Apologises to the magazine who have to make space for it all. I like texture, a lot of texture.
There was also a butonhole, bound in fabric and a tag that reads "sew in love" attached. Twee.
and a headband, that i had to make on site with the headband from my head, as the original i left in a fridge somewhere. It was a proper Blue Peter moment, from out of the bits in my basket and the loan of some paper scissors, a new one was made.
Also, is anybody having a garden party for the Royal Wedding? I have to talk to a journalist on Friday full of creative ideas about fun things to do. Do you have a tablescape idea. Do you think the word tablescape is a bit up itself? Me too.
