Today we’re taking you to a beautiful British beach for a photoshoot showcasing one of our favourite floral designs and some of the stunning dresses by Royal-Appointed children’s occasionwear designer, Nicki Macfarlane…
We adore working with a variety of vendors but we were particularly blown away when asked to create a floral backdrop for Nicki Macfarlane. If you haven’t previously heard the name, Nicki designed the four bridesmaid dresses for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - Kate Middleton and Prince William’s wedding, so it is truly an honour for us to work with her!
Nicki creates exquisite occasion outfits for boys and girls in a range of different styles and colour palettes. Designing for babies right through to aged fourteen, her garments are just perfect for weddings, parties, Eid, Christenings and First Holy Communions. Any item designed by Nicki Macfarlane is sure to become a treasured family heirloom.
For this shoot, we headed to the beach at the lovely Sussex village of Camber - a popular coastal resort with miles of sandy shorelines. With an already stunning backdrop of an enchanting house set right beside the beach, we created a birch pole arch and surrounded it in glorious bright-coloured blooms using various sizes and textures. It was a pure joy to make!
Firstly we selected large, blowsy pink Peonies to epitomise elegance and complement the dresses. Soft clusters of purple Hydrangea in varying stages of bloom also made a star appearance - perfectly contrasting the luxurious combination of standard size and spray British Roses. The arch was finished off with the graceful, ruffled blooms of Stocks. We wanted our design to be indicative of happiness, warmth and affection, whilst also being eye-catching. Our creation was there to enhance the gorgeous flower girl and bridesmaid dresses, making everything about the shots feel magical and in the moment.
We’re sure you’ll agree that the photos are incredibly pretty and have captured the divine details so well! It was our absolute privilege to be involved.
