Behind the scenes at our Wedding Flowers magazine shoot

March 27, 2011

Agreeing to do my friend Hannah’s wedding flowers was one thing, but actually having the know-how to create displays she’ll love is another kettle of fish. When I got married, the flowers were a really important part of creating the right atmosphere and I want Hannah to be as thrilled with her displays as I was with mine. No pressure then!!

I figured that getting advice from people who actually know what they’re doing might be a good place to start. Luckily, I’ve met some wonderful florists during my time as a wedding journalist, so I’m hoping to pinch as many expert tips from them as possible.

With this in mind, Hannah and I recently visited Covent Garden Flower Market to  get an idea of the flowers she likes, followed by a DIY taster session at one of London’s premier florists, Wild at Heart. The full story of what we got up to is going to feature in the June/July issue of Wedding Flowers magazine (on sale at the beginning of May), which I’m really excited about! In the meantime, here are a few behind-the-scenes pics of the shoot…

I had my eye on the unusual bottles and plant pots – they’d make fab vases for Han’s wedding…
