The first floral crown is probably my favorite. The front of the crown is a vintage bracelet of my grandmother, that brought a bohemian feel to the look. Flowers are in shades of cream and white: sweet peas, poppies and azalea. I am a sucker for a veil over a brides face, just beautiful!
Using light pink beauty bush, this crown is airy and loose. My goal was to let the branches mimic their natural look, draping down over her face. The look is very soft and lovely.
The concept for the next crown is a woodland sprit. I found lovely mossy branches in my garden that reminded me of a fanciful royal crown. But I wanted them to be a bit messy and going every which way. The crown base is made of anemone, ranunculus and dusty miller. The flowers are at the peak of season, so full and lush. They add a grandeur to the crown that I felt was needed.
Garlands are popular now in weddings, typically draped over tables or chandeliers. As I made one recently, it reminded me of a feather boa. So I made one with that idea in mind, the bride draping a garland over her shoulders. Once on, it actually looked more like a fur stole, very glamorous and roaring 20's. Made mostly of eucalyptus greens, some clematis vines topped the look off nicely.
Finally, I made an impromptu crown of clematis vines. Very natural looking, the crown is wild in a good way. The blooms look like stars.
A huge thank you to Clinton of Clinton James Photography for letting me collaborate with him on this styled shoot. I love working with other creatives! Look for more of his work from this series and his amazing wedding photos on his website and social media.
