We were recently lucky enough to collaborate with London based fashion designer, Rita Colson and today we wanted to share the stunning gallery with you from the lookbook...
Rita Colson designs contemporary, bespoke and sustainable bridal couture and evening wear for stylish brides and it was such a dream to work with her. Her creations embody elegance and grace, bringing a unique twist to bridal wear that we just can't get enough of! The shoot took place in the Asylum chapel, a distressed-looking grade II listed building in Caroline Gardens, East London. The venue added to the beautifully edgy style of the outfits, making it the ideal location for this high-end, ethical brand.
We were asked to create two bouquets to complement each of Rita's designs - from vintage lace wedding dresses to silk jumpsuits. We chose a wild bouquet and tight bouquet with slight variations of flowers, in soft colours and with plenty of greenery for modern luxury floral designs.
For the wild bouquet we selected a buttermilk cream, pale blush and lush green colour palette, tied with translucent blush ribbon. The Patience Garden Rose was chosen for its ruffled petals, perfectly complementing the lace of the train and bridal jacket. Avalanche Roses brought large blooms with an abundance of petals and strong stems to the bouquet, while Hellebores contributed large leaves and subtle flowers. The clustered blooms of Ranunculus with their silky petals were a dream match for the silk outfits and the delicate White O'Hara Rose added layers of fragrant petals for a fuller finish. For the wilder touches we included the classic foliage, Italian Soft Ruscus - small, shiny pointed leaves from long trailing stems. We teamed this with elegant Asparagus Fern and the larger lobed, darker green leaves of British Berried Ivy - a plant with the hidden meaning of eternity, fidelity and affection which we LOVE.
For the tight bouquet we continued the colour palette, using White O'Hara Roses, Patience Garden Roses, Avalanche Roses and Ranunculus. This time we introduced Italian Hard Ruscus for small peeks of green from underneath and between the soft flowers.
It was such a joy to create these floral designs for the Rita Colson lookbook. If you would like to find out more about how we can help you to create your dream wedding/event through floral design, then why not get in touch today?
