Callista described her wedding plans as laid back and loved all things boho and textural. She showed me images of her Rue de Seine dress and my jaw hit the floor. Callista wanted earthy, modern, natural tones and loads of movement. Nothing too structured.
I’d been experimenting with dyeing my silk ribbons and phalaenopsis orchids and knew that the red earth tones would pair beautifully with bleached back ruscus, sahara, quicksand and toffee roses and my dried textures.
I built a single upright pillar filled with oversized, dried palms, long rosehip branches and dried ferns and foliages for texture.
"Seeing my flowers for the first time had me very close to tears, the passion and love that Jess has for her work was evident from our first communication (taking my call on her holiday).
My vision came to life with Jess exceeding the design brief (even dying my orchids by hand!!).
Jess stayed behind after the ceremony to reposition the flowers for our reception and went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect."
