Peonies are one of my favourite flowers and it apears, many other people feel the exact same. There is something so whimsical and intoxicating about this sweet smelling, fluffy gorgeous bloom and kicking off our wedding inspiration for the year is this beautiful pink peonies wedding inspiration shoot.
Juli of A single Sweet Girl dreamed up this notion and worked with Virginia of The Bouquets of Ascha Jolie and Steve of Steve Koukoulas Photography to produce a pink peony wonderland.
Juli tells of her inspiration behind the shoot. “This was a dessert table I developed to celebrate the Peony – I have had the common notion for this table held in my imagination for the longest time – so lengthy in truth that I can’t keep in mind when the minds-eye vision of what I wanted to generate initial appeared, but it stayed there, never ever wavering, just waiting patiently for the timing and inventive minds to be right in order for it to genesis.”
“Peonies thrill me. They are all at as soon as delicate and literally petal-soft to touch, and so inspiring in terms of their colour palette. The way that Mother Nature perfectly ‘paint splatters’ deep pink onto the petals of paler blooms in a way that I can only ever dream of attaining their amazing scent – and that these flowers are so inspiring that some brides schedule their weddings just to guarantee that they can have peonies in their bouquets. There could be no other flower to inspire such a table as this even even though you could very easily recreate this with other flowers and colours”
“I adore peonies as a lot as I adore pink, and these two things are a perfect marriage with my personal signature vintage style – generating the desserts for this table was not so considerably as question of “where to start”, but a lot more so “where to stop”. Working with my really talented and fantastic friends Virginia of The Bouquets of Ascha Jolie, and Steve of Steve Koukoulas Photography, we stepped into my imagination and brought my vision “into the light”.””
“I was genuinely blessed to perform with Virginia on this table – as soon as I mentioned cascading peonies, I required to say no far more – she knew specifically exactly where I was going in my imagination, and hers was equally quick in catching up! We arrived at the place ( a regional park literally five minutes stroll from my property) before 6am to set-up to be prepared to shoot at 7am to get the best morning light, and Steve the photographer literally took 1 appear and started shooting – it was a genuine meeting of three creatives who each saw exactly the same minds-eye vision. Steve captured the quite essence of what I wanted – style and grace and pretty and pink and peonies – simultaneously. I am beyond thrilled to have had the opportunity to function with Steve as properly as Virginia on this project.”
“With regards to the table, it came to me direct from my imagination. Which I know sounds really odd, but when I closed my eyes and saw the cascading flowers, I knew specifically how I wanted the cake to look – it had to be ruffled, and those ruffles had to be petals, and there had to be lots of them, just like peony petals! From there, the ombre impact was a organic progression as nicely as becoming the most recent style craze – and the outcome is, I believe, resoundingly distinctive. I loved each and every minute of producing this table – from the notion to the creation of the desserts, to the shoot-day execution… that was a thrilling moment – seeing it, in the flesh, specifically as my imagination had seen it.”
“Desserts include a three tier ombre impact ruffle cake (bottom tier is a double-barrel), matching cupcakes with ruffled blooms, raspberry flavoured gourmet marshmallows, coconut ice, peony-inspired vanilla bean sugar cookies, rosewater meringues with edible sparkle dust, and cake pops.”
