G & Tea in the Glasshouse

Image - Julie Michaelsen Photography | Florals - Moss & Stone Floral Design

Early last Spring I was asked by Goose & Berry weddings if I fancied providing the florals for a gin and tea inspired shoot at Bombay Sapphire Distillery.....um let me think a minute...yes please! As every one knows florists and gin go together like buckets and spades if you get my drift! Then, even better, I was told Julie Michaelsen was the photographer....yes, yes please!

We wanted the look to be botanically interesting and different from the norm to echo the botanical notes in the gin so I felt that these fritillaria imperialis , butterfly ranunculus and other early spring beauties fulfilled that brief rather well. 

Then the icing on the G & Tea cake came when we discovered that the shoot would be featured later on in the year on Rock My Wedding - I love my job!

A Winter Gathering Workshop

Image - Hannah Duffy | Florals - Moss & Stone Floral Design

On a bitterly cold but bright, sunshiny November day, Kate Hargreaves of Tangle & Thyme and I held our Workshop, A Winter Gathering, in her beautiful garden and converted coach house. we were joined by a wonderful group of florists, all with varied experience and interests. Julie King (Peonies & Posies)who writes a garden blog and is passionate about her stunning cutting garden and using seasonal flowers, Sarah Statham (Simply By Arrangement) who holds the most wonderfully inspirational floral workshops from her ’small corner’ of Yorkshire, Ruth who once owned a beautiful hotel on the West coast of Scotland and did all the hotel flowers there for nearly thirty years, Sarah Whiting (Nettlewood Flowers) a talented flower farmer and florist from Teddington, Jen Sayers (Foxtail Floral Design) who is a skilled freelance florist from Suffolk and Helen Jackson (Petal & Pot), a lovely wedding and event florist based in Walthamstow. The idea was to create together a beautiful atmospheric installation with in which we could enjoy a candlelight feast once darkness descended.

We were lucky enough to be joined by the amazing and lovely fine art photographer Hannah Duffy who documented our day.

If you would like to read more information about this workshop Rona Wheeldon wrote up a lovely interview with me on her blog Flowerona.

Norfolk Lavender Fields

Image - Hannah Duffy Photography Florals - Moss & Stone Floral Design

Earlier this summer I was asked to create the florals for a gorgeous shoot just up the road from me at Norfolk Lavender. With a team including Natalie Hewitt as Creative Director and Hannah Duffy as photographer I knew we would produce some magic. It turned out to be a most unseasonably rainy day but with Hannah's amazing photographic skills and the professionalism of the models, magic was indeed produced and I don't think you would never know from the images. So, you can imagine our delight when we were featured on Love My Dress - being soaked through was really worth it! For true, unadulterated, behind the scenes reality, scroll through to the last image here to see just how wet we got!

A sensual summer

Image Craig Girling | Florals - Moss & Stone Floral Design

So here it is the final image in our Four Seasons Project - pretty pleased with this one! It is amazing what you can find foraging. Now obviously this set didn't require much but the plant life did need to look like it may have been found amongst the sand dunes so I was rather chuffed that this little lot was all sourced at Old Jet. I shall put all 4 together in another blog post!

Woodland Luxe

Back in early Spring a plan was hatched by Laura of Your Wedding Your Way to create a beautiful snowdrop themed wedding photo shoot. But nature had other ideas and the weather was so unseasonably warm that by the time we arrived at the shoot day all the snowdrops had finished. But we are British and so, of course, we carried on regardless and I am delighted to say that that determination paid off as a few weeks later we were featured on Want That Wedding. Do take a look for more images and I really hope you like what we did!
