A Rock & Roll styled shoot

A few months ago I travelled to Preston to take part in my first styled shoot! It was a really fun and relaxed day (the perfect way to ease myself into editorials!), and the request was for flowers in deep colours to suit a Rock & Roll vibe. I chose statement chrysanthemums in a red & pink colourway, then matched them with black Cala lilies, deep red roses and Germini, pink spray roses, dried amaranthus, waxflower and black-berried ivy.

The result worked perfectly with Sharon's wine-coloured suit and contrasted beautifully with Emilie's stunning black Riley & Flynn dress. Red and pink were also introduced with some awesome bespoke leather jackets from Niamh Designs, which featured floral embroidery on the back - an inspired touch!

As well as a bouquet, I provided bud vases for the tables and created a sustainable table spray on site, which was created with moss wrapped in a biodegradable liner, then covered with chicken wire. It was a last-minute decision to create this, but I was so pleased with how it came out.

Possibly my favourite image from the day is this one, of the bouquet alongside Emilie's Dr Marten boots. It perfectly sums up the alternative vibe and I just adore the dark and moody style of Millie Angel's photography.

Here's the full run-down of vendors on the day:
