When you need some inspiration.....

I need some right now....

I know we have all been there, the well is dry and we just draw a blank...

This is the time for a mock wedding shoot in the garden for my web site ....the garden is near perfection and I have to pull all the elements required together quickly...a model, a dress, make up and hair and of course, a venue and the flowers... before weeks end...

I can see it all clearly in my minds eye...

Hair and makeup....

Or maybe this, a simple, yet elegant take on a look more suited to a garden wedding....

The garden waits for no one.....beauty, here today, gone the next, ever changing... 

The South lawn, with rhododendrons in full bloom..

Thinking of the areas to use in the garden for a beautiful, fully dressed wedding table...

I wish the Japanese peony tree would hold out a little longer....just one bloom in a bride's bouquet would be stunning....

Last week, beauties...
