Floristry On the Wild Side | A floral design workshop

Floral Design: Bringing the beauty of nature indoors is for everyone.

Floral design which is wild and unstructured is a growing trend – for weddings, events, or just for pleasure. And I have to say I am most excited about that! I am so in love with this style of floral design that I contacted Charlie Ryrie to visit her Cut Flower Garden in West Dorset, where I heard a little of her story as one of the pioneers of this movement over a decade ago.

Naturally then I was delighted when she invited me to document her Spring 2017 workshop Floristry on the Wild Side.  I captured the stunning arrangements of her pupils with both my digital and beloved film cameras.  Frankly it is much harder than it looks to go wild.  I also took the opportunity to photograph her amazing garden and grounds – which I will share later.

Charlie has more courses coming up this summer, do check them out here.

My images from this workshop – together with some inspiring words from Charlie – was featured by The Natural Wedding Company on their blog for stylish, eco-conscious couples.
