Manor of Groves shoot

Manor of Groves ~ Twilight Editorial

We had the pleasure of spending an enchanted evening with our wonderful team at the beautiful Hertfordshire wedding venue, Manor of Groves for this editorial photoshoot. Bringing together the best local creative suppliers, we transformed the garden space, embracing the fog to showcase these beautiful gowns by House of Nicholas.

When creating the vision board for this event, I decided to showcase darker floral combinations by incorporating midnight blue delphiniums, deep red ranunculus and burgundy astrantia. My adoration of spray roses couldn’t go unnoticed so I decided to use a super light, pastel spray rose to brighten the bouquet. I truly love experimenting with texture and movement when it comes to bridal bouquets. I used deep midnight blue delphiniums to add height and depth to the first bouquet. Delphiniums come in a range of colours which make them the perfect flower to bring added height to your arrangement and can be used in a range of colour palettes to compliment each theme.
