The Most Romantic Autumn Floral Inspiration
The beauty of flowers is something that really captivates us here at B.LOVED. We adore the creativity of modern floral design and the different atmosphere’s and styles which can be created with florals – and of course the colours! The fabulous film photographer Petra Veikkola and Floral Designer Helmivillakko held a beautiful workshop in Finland for photographers and floral designers to create the most romantic Autumnal floral arrangements and it’s the perfect inspiration for both weddings and everyday life – because the colours will make your heart sing! First we take a look at the start of the exciting day, with the collections of flowers waiting to be gathered and transformed into different interpretations. We loved the stylish details such as the table set with ceramic pots in the grey and white linen aprons hung waiting for the floral designers to wear. Then just wait until you see the table setting and food created for the meal afterwards and what each florist has created!
Erika of Helmivillakko tells us more about the details; “We didn’t have to search for the perfect venue for long – when we saw the beautifully rough walls of Brinkhall Manor’s Kavaljeerisiipi we were in love. This magical old manor was built in the 17th century and turned out to be the perfect venue for a creative souls to meet and greet. Our workshop was filled with the finest flowers of the season, including bunches of garden roses, dahlias, stocks and foraged foliage. After making the lush and romantic floral designs with Myself all the participants gathered together with Petra to talk about photography, receive tips on finding their own photography style and how to grow their brands on social media. The workshop culminated in perfectly styled farewell dinner which included a three course autumn feast surrounded by the gorgeous floral arrangements that participants had created during the workshop. The whole day was filled with lots of inspiration, interesting conversations and knowledge sharing.”
To enjoy their centrepiece designs in a beautiful table setting with delicious food by PitoPastantti is such a lovely idea and we love the decor and soft light, textures and colours. It’s such wonderful inspiration for a gethering or party this season too!
