beauties....the summer calendula blooms faded away.the autumn calendula blooms are slowly coming to life...i love how they go together so well.how they go hand in hand▪transition
Friday started with rain, the temperature fell immediately. I left the house with my autumn coat 🧥 on, with my umbrella and a warm cup of coffee in my hand. And I loved it. Autumn you are so welcome 🍂 have a lovely start to the weekend xx
for her personal flowers, georgie and i always knew we wanted to keep it sophisticated with a touch of contemporary texture. and by keeping the colours minimal but tonal, i let the camellia leaves dictate the overall form - organic but restrained. we really wanted to let that amazing dress shine!
boutonnière are usually the last personal florals i create because by then, i can usually channel the very last of my energy to making em’ look both lush and perfect. this one went out to Qin Xian, marrying details from Rachel’s bouquet with the most perfect flannel flower bloom i could find!
Caught in the afternoon sun yesterday my glass dome from @roseandgreyinteriors
which replaces one that broke when we moved. It’s making a magical home to an allium I got last week on my embroidery course. There’s information about that on my blog today if you fancy a quick distraction. The glass dome is a styling challenge so I’d love your comments and likes to help me win 🙏🏻#rgstylingchallenge
i love the French make everything sound delicious, like - j’adore: to express an enjoyment or delight over a pastry or person. and it can even be used an an expletive!
well, i really j’adore flannel flowers, so much so that i had to fight to use them in rachel’s bouquet. the soft suede texture, the way it creates movement and a magnificent focal point. such a short season but i’m so glad i could j’adore-ing use you!
Prepping for tomorrow’s 1-1 with garden roses, flowers from @theyorkshireflowerpatch
and my lunch 🍑 🤣. (The scabious at the back is trying desperately to see the 🍑😉)

i really left it up to the seasons this time to inspire rachel’s bouquet, and thankfully they came through. taking creative liberty from her silver studded gown, i put together my silvery spring favourites - eucalyptus macrocarpa, leucadendron purple haze and my current favourite, flannel flowers!
Feels like the last day of summer today but I’m sticking with an autumnal palette for a little Sunday still life. Happy Sunday, all! #todayfrommygarden #dahliaseason
shooting with these girls was an absolute breeze because they were so comfortable in their own skin and gorgeous inside and out. can’t wait to share more pictures from @juanmoleyfotologue
„There may come a time in your life when the universe will ask you to do something fantastically foolish for the person you love. I pray that you rise to this challenge with daring and grace. That you always recognize the wisdom in risking anything and everything for the good of your heart.“ Beau Taplin🍂
for the lovely Laura who got married on Saturday. Not summer but not quite autumn.
