We were recently contacted by Joanne of Joanne Truby Floral Design, who had organised a beautiful ‘1920’s Old World Glamour’ styled shoot. Joanne’s idea behind the shoot was to give brides-to-be inspiration for wedding flowers, with some unique ideas for bouquets, table centres and floral decor. The vision and overall style originated from 1920’s old world glamour, in particular from the iconic novel The Great Gatsby, centralising on the main colours of gold, peach and duck egg. Instead of going all out with the pearls and headpieces, Joanne decided she wanted to show a more understated take of the style and how, just by adding little details, you can still achieve a beautiful and elegant look.
As Joanne explains, it’s all in the details…
“I wanted the shoot to take place in a pretty woodland area as the natural beauty of the countryside is inspirational in itself and I love trees; the different shapes the branches make and how they change with the season is something that I feel is magical. I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for the photos as well as fitting well with the underlining theme of the shoot being natural/minimalistic. Neil of Dotpix Photography suggested a great location for the shoot would be a little village called Yalding, in the Kent countryside; it’s not far from where he lives so he had a good knowledge of the area and picked the ideal location.
“I like to use different textures as much as I can within my floral designs, and the flowers included were of a pastel colour palette made up of peach and sweet avalanche roses, lisianthus, blue mascari (which smells heavenly), and wax flower which has a lovely lemon scent to it, and the foliage included berried ivy, eucalyptus and Pittosporum.
