From the photographer:
The backdrop for our story is the home of our florist muse. Her 17th century cottage is located in a small village in the English countryside called Old Amersham. Her dwelling, and the little visited areas of her village where she wanders, are fuel for her creativity. The warm, late summer breeze sets the mood as she gathers seasonal florals and foliages from her garden; a mood that is reflected in the table she sets for an intimate evening with those she loves.
Buckinghamshire offers up beautiful, English-grown bounty to select from. As summer leans towards autumn, the florals have an incredible depth in tone and texture that allow for the creation of rich, whimsical florals. The floral passion of our muse is on that has been passed down from generation to generation – as evidenced in the flowers growing in both her mother’s and grandmother’s gardens. Using neutral crockery and delicate paperie designs, she creates a table that embraces the warmth and draws the eye to be drawn to the centerpiece full of history!
