Looking at the featured images, would you guess that none of flowers and vines are real? Nope, neither did we. But they are all artificial! From the bouquet and buttonhole, to the amazing half-moon installation…all of the flowers on this styled shoot are handmade.
Emily, of Faux Bloom, submitted this beautiful, dreamy shoot which showcases her amazing work. Artificial flowers have improved not only in the quality but in the artistry & materials used, and Emily’s aim for this shoot was to prove just how beautiful artificial flowers can look.
Emily explains that her clients choose faux for many different reasons; allergies, destination weddings & the fact that they can be prepared weeks in advance. However for the majority of couples, it’s because they want floral glamour & unique creations without the price tag.
“Large arrangements/ displays made with fresh flowers would understandably be a blow to even a healthy budget. Our hire options gives our clients choice & the chance to be really creative styling their chosen venue”.
For this shoot, Emily wanted to use only local suppliers, creating a new network of wedding industry professionals within our area.
“Client satisfaction is everything & I really enjoy being able to pass on company details that I trust to provide a great service.”
We couldn’t agree more…networking is massively important!
We asked Emily what the challenges were behind this shoot…we only ever see the perfect, finished images. But every shoot has its challenges…
‘We relied on the weather, and there was no plan b for this one! We had torrential rain the day before & also the day after but thankfully it was a glorious afternoon which gave way to a perfect sunset for the shoot.”
‘Inspired by nature, lasts a lifetime’…those words certainly ring true. If you are looking for beautiful flowers for your wedding, but are working to a smaller flower budget, then artificial flowers are a great compromise…especially when they look this good.
And to leave you with a parting comment…Emily’s favourite aspect of the shoot was…
“the relaxed & friendly atmosphere from start to finish. So many talented people behind the scenes worked extremely hard making this shoot a success.”
