From Maria De Faci Photography… This shoot of rustic, bohemian and natural wedding inspiration was born on the benches of the river Thames where the air is fresh, herbs are splendid and the river is creating a soft glow around all objects by beautifully reflecting and diffusing sunlight.
Our idea was to create a unique blend of natural elements like moss, leaves and flowers with lightweight naked Victoria sponges, innocent beauty of a young bride, kids and all shades of the rich foliage of English gardens.
We set up a tea table for two under a tree by the river on a vintage tablecloth (family heirloom of Katja Berg) , using some beautiful china and cakes, all generously decorated by fruits and flowers, and a big moss tree – a signature decoration detail by our florist Katja.
A retro bike, an umbrella and a pair of wellies in retro yellow colour added to the whole mise-en-scène the character of the English countryside and the refreshing feel of the weather outside.
Our model wore rich flower crown and a loose matching bouquet all in warm pale palette. Flower style and inspiration is by Katja from Bergdorf’s, she is a very talented Danish florist with a distinctive chic rustic style.We used vintage tablecloths, vases and china, vintage veils, handmade designer hair accessories, and the garden of a famous London boutique hotel.
