Indian Summer Dreams

Indian Summer Dreams

It’s been a long hot summer, autumn days breezing in with the promise of colour, the last of August’s rich floral bounty turning into a September chill flourish of raspberry reds, sunset pinks and velvet petalled roses. We’re dreaming ahead, of October’s Indian summer…

We’ve joined forces with another local designer to create an exclusive boutique event for brides-to-be: Zita Elze X Louise Selby. Join us for a sumptuous and bespoke 45 minute bridal appointment, redolent with romance, and receive a gorgeous goody bag too. Explore ideas for exquisitely composed wedding flowers, view elegant and softly sophisticated new look gowns, and discuss personalised concepts for the most delectable of cake designs, courtesy of Cakes By Krishanthi. You will also have the opportunity to browse through some of the talented documentary wedding photographer Federica Martellini’s portfolios.

Zita’s designs are the natural highlight of our story today, with a glorious wedding hat embellished with highlights of hibiscus-like lavatera and other fresh florals. Zita created a delicate frame of dry corokia cotoneaster for the bridal bouquet, which also features roses mingled with achillea and clematis. Her sensitive arrangements offer the perfect complement to the glamorous simplicity of Daisy, Louise Selby’s stunning column gown in British cotton lace with a coffee hued underlay and a beautiful open back.

Wax flowers tumble in ethereal garlands from the table design, setting the scene for one of Cakes By Krishanthi’s superb signature wedding cakes, decorated with naturalistic sugar peonies and roses in the same vibrant shades as Zita’s flowers.
