Fruits of the Garden

It was my great pleasure to be invited by Jennifer Pinder, one of my favourite florists, to style her portfolio workshop. As I drove the winding country lanes towards her Kent studio, I passed by harvested fields and tangled hedgerows that were bursting with blackberries. Autumn had crept in early, but the upside of course was the blaze of seasonal flowers - burning reds, deepest pinks and hot oranges - that awaited her students. It was a joy to witness them creating such an abundant collection of wedding arrangements, and an inspiration to work alongside Julie to capture the scene.
