Incredible Flower filled Staircase at Aynhoe Park – Whimsical Wedding Inspiration

Whimsical Bridal Style…

Today I’m finally sharing with you one of my favourite Mr & Mrs Unique shoots to date; an amazing flower filled, whimsical bridal shoot working alongside an incredible team within the majestically unique surroundings of Aynhoe Park.

The initial idea was that I wanted to create an incredible floral installation up Aynhoe Park’s majestic staircase, which has an abundance of glorious natural light. When Alex from The Bijou Bride and Lizzie from Early Hours London came on board, the idea developed into a gorgeous Sleeping Beuaty themed shoot. Similar to the fairytale where she took a bite into a poisoned apple; our beautiful brides would take a bite out of a sweet peach and then things would take a darker turn. We would create these two worlds; one all soft, feminine and romantic then as you walked up the stairs the vibe become more darker and sexier.

The amazing Early Hours London team was in charge of the flowers for this installation and decorated the bottom of the staircase with hydrangeas, teal coloured asparagus ferns, miniature balloon balls from Bubblegum Balloons team and tall vases filled with peaches and apples.

1. Layer the paper and make a stencil so that you can draw around your leaf shape and cut out a few layers at a time.

2. Fold the leaves so you have a 3D effect. You can fold them in wads to save time. I pinched up to ¾ of the way up the leaf.

3. Set the sewing machine to a wide zigzag.

4. Sew in a straight line with your zigzag stitch up the string, adding the leaves at regular intervals.

5. You could sew to any length you want. I used around 30 leaves for each meter of garland.

The stitched string makes an awesome raw look. Hope you have fun, and you could use any shape and any colour.

Happy Creating
