Let your head piece do the talking ….
I’m not sure if you know but I have a little obession to share with you …. my love for headbands! This is one of my guilty obessions and I often can’t leave the house without one!
So, when this photo shoot came along with these gorgeous flower headbands we had to share it with you! Especially as it’s also from the super talented Kerry from The Blossom Tree based right here in Derbyshire.
I now hand you over to Kerry to explain a little bit more about this gorgeous, woodland inspired photo shoot.
“Our style is very relaxed , informal floristry, being inspired by nature & working with seasonal flowers and foliages, which gave the overall idea for the ‘woodland theme’ of the shoot.
I was keen to have a very natural setting, and use this in an ‘organic’ simple way, no external props, just focus on the models, flowers and beautiful photography.
As we are lucky to be based in the lovely Derbyshire countryside, I wanted to use this for the location, particulary as we planned the shoot for January which makes woodland so interesting with different colours and textures.
For the flowers , I very much wanted them to blend with the setting both in colour and form, so chose a colour palette of neutral tones and incorporated textured material eg seed heads, berries, mixed foliages that would be found in this environment, and to also give a feel of the time of year of the shoot. We used natural products like twine and hessian within the designs again to support the style of the shoot.
Over the last year, we have seen hair flowers become a key trend in our wedding work so wanted to bring this element into the shoot for our clients to be inspired by .
I have worked with Christian and Erica before , and absolutely love their natural style of photography so was delighted when they agreed to be involved and am so pleased with the images .”
What a gorgeous, dreamy shoot. And the perfect excuse for me to head out this weekend and purchase myself a brand new piece of headwear loveliness 😉
