Hearts and flowers: Behind the scenes

fleur_cocoa_1

We’ve been taking a long and lingering look at our Hearts & Flowers feature from issue ten. And just for the delight of it, and, because they are such beautiful photos, we thought we’d share a couple more piccies that didn’t make the final cut…

We’re not the only ones who’ve been swooning over these gorgeous photos. Chicago florist Kelly Marie, of Fleur, who created the romantic floral arrangements mentioned us on the Fleur blog

Thanks for the shout-out, Kelly-Marie and for allowing us to share these extra beautiful photos…

Our photos featured the engagement of Leanne and Gordon, with cross stitch by Alexia Ruggles of Ruggles Made. But the other stars of the shoot had to be the flowers. These beautiful arrangements have just the right amount of wild and wonderful to suit the happy couple. And doesn’t that white milk glass set them off a treat? Quite makes us want to start a collection of our own…
