BANQUE & BOHEM…

pROPER AWESOME ECLECTIC VENUE WITH OUTRAGEOUSLY COOL WALL PAPER!… Art deco glam I think i’d call this… i couldn’t resist creating some quirky deco table centrepieces with glossy tropical foliage in tall slender vases… Plants are in big time this season so I styled the tables with ferns, florals and candlesticks… The Posh loo’s had its very own fire place! i mean seriously, talk about glam… this was dressed with a sumptuous centrepiece, cute jars with flower heads and more cosy candles… A rather vibrant bridal bouquet took centre stage on a VELVET sofa just waiting for someone to whisk it away!

Shell Bay shoot…

I teamed up with my Awesome DUO Linen & Lace and my go to fabulous photographer Charlotte Bryer-ash… The Linen and Lace girls had a vision of intimacy and romance, stepping away from the hustle and bustle of planning a big wedding and focused on the bride and groom having an intimate dinner for two on shell bay beach… Friends had lined a path for them with festoon lights and tropical planting… while cosy cushions and throws where scattered around a simple palette table with cute jars and shells with flowers, all ready for them to cuddle up and sip champagne watching the sun go down with this amazing view… Are you with me… can you feel the and between your toes!

Woodland inspired ceremony shoot…

I’m in my element when I’m in the woods… walking my dog each day I’m constantly inspired picking up lichen covered branches & piece of bark I can corporate into my designs… I’m all about ceremony styling too, walking through Rhinefields ornamental drive one day I thought to my self… “this would make such an awesome wedding ceremony”… So I got creative with my styling girls & had some fun… natural, earthy & textured. I was so pleased with the results captured by my awesome photographer friend even though it was a rather dull and rainy day!

Vineyard bride shoot…

Our stunning young model, Amy, looked just gorgeous in this Claire Pettibone dress… The whole shoot was based around romance and elegance, embracing the natural surroundings of this very stylish vineyard. White sumptuous flowers with floaty textured greenery combined with powder blue candles and ribbons created the perfect romantic look for this shoot.

Styled shoot, Lulworth Castle…

When it comes to styled wedding shoots Lulworth Castle in Dorset is the venue’s of all venue’s… Those rustic bare bricks & neutral decor lend itself to any styling and colour combinations. This was an early spring shoot so I embraced the seasons textured foliage like grevillea, berried ivy, ferns & silver eucalyptus to make this simple foliage arch way. The brides bouquet had pops of peach roses with complimenting trailing ribbons & the aisle decor consisted of chunky pillar candles, tea lights & lanterns on mass for the ultimate romantic glow. Simple jars of flowers of pure white tulips & peach rose where dotted here & there along the aisle nestled amongst a bed of winding foliage. This was taken apart & re-used as the top table styling, the perfect way to make the most to your money!

Coastal Tents Upton House summer shoot…

The fabulous Coastal Tents got together a motley crew of stylists, makeup artist, photographer and dress peeps and said… Lets play… Carla from Coastal Tents had a visions of a hanging installation to show off her tipi… “Clair I want something big with lots of foliage and candles”… Her wish was my command!

High Cliffe beach styled shoot…

The team and I wanted to create the dream tropical beach wedding right here in Dorset…. I think we pulled it off pretty well…. Any of you lovely people getting married at venues near the beach can have shots like these too, providing you don’t mind hitching your trousers up! Soft pastel flowers with textures mimicking what you would find naturally growing by the sea inspired me for this bouquet.

Clair is knowledgeable & friendly which is exactly what every bride needs. Her work looks like it's out of an East London photoshoot with oodles of style... All of my bridesmaids want Clair to be there florist. She is exceptional!

She is an extremely talented artist

Even after my own wedding over a year ago I still follow Clair on all her social medias... seeing her new work with other brides and feeling like she keeps re-investing herself, nothing is ever alike! She is an extremely talented artist.

Clair is extremely passionate about what she does, which is highly infectious... She knows her craft and is very responsive and flexible to additional ideas... Everyone commented that they were the most stunning wedding flowers they'd ever seen!
