In this week’s Wedding Wednesday post, I’m so thrilled to share with you breath-taking images from a wedding shoot on the Cornish coast. Sarah Falugo is the talented photographer and the stunning florals were supplied and created by Susanne Hatwood from The Blue Carrot.
I asked Susanne about her inspiration for the designs. She said: “It was at the height of summer and baking hot when we had the shoot. I still can’t believe how well the flowers lasted. The initial inspiration came from a mood board with some stunning images, including the beautiful dresses and jewellery, plus a picture of the actual location. I was so incredibly blown away by that cove and the colours found in the sea, the cliffs and the sand.
Sarah’s colour scheme changed quite drastically at the very last minute. And initially, I was little unsure when she thought that including some purple would be a good idea. But I must say that this was a real eye-opener for me. I discovered that there really isn’t an ugly colour…it’s all about the shade. In this case, I used some ‘Burgundy Ice’ roses, dark scabious and some copper beech foliage. Their velvety darkness was a fantastic contrast to the soft peachy ‘Champagne Moment’ roses, foxgloves and sweet peas.
I just love creating ombré arrangements. So I decided that for the tablecentre, I would wholeheartedly go for that. All the flowers used were homegrown. I had a rough idea about my design, but I did let the garden inspire me.”
Here are some more photos from the shoot, which took place at Kynance Cove.
Thank you so much to Sarah and Susanne for all their help. The other people involved in the shoot were Maria Senvo who provided the two white dresses and Alison-Jayne Couture provided the mulberry dress. Hair styling was by Roch from Hair by Rochelle. The wooden platters, cutlery, table linens and glassware were kindly loaned by Home Address.
