I sometimes feel that green as a colour is often underestimated and taken for granted. We see it every day, in the trees, in the grass; and both brides and florists alike seem particularly prone to overlooking it’s individual beauty; seeing things such as foliage purely as a filler.
I however find green the most breathtaking of colours, innate in our world, and one that I feel deserves more recognition.
The below Green Goddess’ shoot was inspired by this sentiment.
The Goddess in question is the wonderful Ella, writer of the ‘Welcome to an Alternate Planet’ blog, if you would like to check it out you can do so here. She was the perfect candidate for the shoot, not only is she a beauty, but also has the edge I felt this shoot required…green is not for the faint hearted after all, and I would like to thank her very much for her involvement.
I used many different types of foliage for the three bouquets, including weeping pear, beech and herbs, in fact the third bouquet was made purely from a multitude of different herbs. It smelled absolutely divine!
Rosemary, dill, sage, purple sage, lavender and bay were all included in this uniquely wild, deconstructed creation. I clumped each individual type of foliage together within the bouquet rather than scattering each stem evenly throughout. This creates a gorgeously subtle, yet contemporary effect that I have to restrain myself from using all the time.
