COLOUR STORIES - WHITE & GREEN

The final palette we worked with in our colour stories series was classic white and green. As much as I love working with colour I can see why so many brides choose this palette, you truly can't go wrong. Generally I like to use several different varieties of blooms in my arrangements. This session gave me the opportunity to try something I've wanted to experiment with for a while. It's really not ground breaking, just a bit different than my usual...I wanted to try and simplify by using just one type of flower in my arrangement while still trying to create interest, depth and shape. I chose to work with iceberg roses, mainly because I think they are adorable and I love how their little heads bob when you move them and how on the second day they open up and show you their sweet yellow centers. To my utmost delight, I was able to incorporate this stunning trailing clematis vine. It must have been my lucky day because I was dropping something off to my florist friends studio the day before the shoot when I spotted the vine that she had brought back from the market. She didn't need it and I happily accepted it (thanks M!). The vine added some needed texture and helped create a soft shape. As always, I'm blown away by the beautiful calligraphy of Michaela Mcbride, the photographs by David at We Are Origami and the styling by Sandra Chau Design
