Spring Portfolio Workshop

A proper blog post is on the way but I couldn't wait to share some photos from my recent portfolio workshop! A group of such amazing and warm florists gathered in my Kent studio to learn the wedding business and get some truly amazing images for all of their portfolios. 

Come and join me for the next one in August! You will create a bouquet, table centrepiece and large installation piece. Importantly ALL of your items will be professionally photographed with a model and then sent to you for you to use as you please. I've been on too many workshops myself where the photographer seemed to be mainly there for the workshop host - I'm determined for my courses to be different.

Huge thanks to Imogen Xiana for the photos and Ellie Gill for makeup. Imogen uses film and knows how to capture flowers like no one else! Ellie is local to me in Tunbridge Wells and she uses only natural products to work her magic! xx

A Maverick Projects Asylum Wedding : Rose and Rich Video

 
Flowers by Jennifer Pinder at the Asylum Chapel in Peckham South London Maverick Projects. Grey blue, teal and white themed summer wedding.png

I was delighted to be asked to return to the beautiful Asylum Chapel in Peckham in South London for Rose and Richard's absolutely gorgeous day. The Asylum is one of those venues in London where as soon as everyone walks in they just go... 'wow'.

Tucked away in Peckham you are never quite sure you are in the right place until you walk into the breathtaking Asylum Chapel with its crumbling walls and breathtaking ambience. There is nowhere else like it!

The team at the Asylum Chapel are great and seem to have a never ending supply of pillar candles!

For these flowers Rose and I decided to let the amazing Asylum set the scene and so we took inspiration from the muted blue/grey walls and decided to work with them rather than using anything too clashing. We used dusty teal eucalyptus, blue sea holly and white for a bit of lightening and brightening. Rose wanted to make the most of her budget and so we moved flowers in jam jars from lining the Asylum chapel, to dotted around on the tables and... they got their final move to the East Dulwich Tavern where it looked like the party was set to carry on for a loooong time! 

Also wonderful for me was that a friend from school created this wonderful video of the big day. Although we were both frantically running around it was lovely to see her and meet her boyfriend during the madness. Her company is Indigo Wild Studio and I highly recommend her services.
