We’re floating back to 2017 and to Taehee Kim’s final project for the Advanced Wedding Design Master Class. Kim was especially keen to enhance her floral styling skills for photo shoots, with a view to developing her career as a creative director. Her clear vision delivered a wedding set which was strong on concept, mood and aesthetics.
“… learning the whole process to manage the arrangement, from the beginning and how to create my concept, through to decorating the space, is very important to me. That is the reason why I joined this class… Learning from a professional teacher who really knows how to pass on skills and know-how is the main reason to choose Zita. And I wanted to learn from someone with their own style and working philosophy.” Taehee Kim, 2017
“I do not want to be a florist who just makes simple bunches of flowers. I want to create a special space, which flows with a mood and with flowers.”
“My inspiration was an image of a white dish with moss. I was interested in minimalism, the main concept being to ‘remove unnecessary things as much as possible’, so black and white and some ivory were my chosen colours. My main decorative flower was a white peony. Many brides want peonies for their wedding.”
Taehee Kim went on to explain that she also chose peonies for their shape and multiple layers, their outline being very simple yet classic and sophisticated.
“This was an inspiring project and one that I wanted to feature on the blog – Kim’s use of foliage with a simple flower note is especially successful and the sparse colours also define this beautiful minimal style wedding story. I’m looking forward to seeing what she is now up when I visit Korea for the April master class!” Zita Elze, 2019
