Wedding Flowers Inspired by Old Dutch Paintings
A Flower Photo-shoot with a Difference – Wedding Flowers inspired by the Paintings of Old Dutch Masters
Earlier this year we were asked to design a range of wedding florals for a photoshoot. The brief was to use the paintings of old Dutch masters for inspiration.
We’re certainly not art experts but to us Confetti Magazine’s brief meant using paintings like Vermeer’s “Girl with the Pearl Earing or Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch” as our influence.
The setting was a beautifully restored Georgian town-house in Dublin city centre – 10 Ormond Quay which makes for a spectacular venue for smaller weddings, events and of course photoshoots.
To get the look we were after we decided to use Ivy, Asparagus Fern, Parrot Tulips, Hydrangea, Ranunculus, Trailing Amaranthus, Viburnum Snowball, David Austen Roses and Euphorbia.
This particular selection of flowers helped us achieve the rich, opulent yet informal style we were after.
Of course none of these images would be possible without the hard work of a small dedicated team including a very talented stylist, beautiful model and wonderful photography.
