So, Laura got in touch approximately 48 hours before her wedding and asked if I would whisk her bouquet away (“you want me to take your bouquet?!”) and take it apart (“you’re ok for me to cut it up?”) (ohhhhh the pressure!), and create her some deconstructed bouquet artwork for her wall. AND I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT.
We chatted vision for the wall and the room, and paper textures and mount styles… We settled on a matted deckled edge (hand torn) print, on luxurious cotton rag paper. The texture of cotton rag is delicious - the way the inks sings from it is incredible, and it just feels like it truly is heirloom quality and like you could pluck those blooms straight out of the page to reconstruct the bouquet. The deckled edge lends that softness and romanticism to the format to be in harmony with the image. As Laura chose a piece with some soft focus and some of her bridal lace in, this was perfect. The matted mount was also made to measure and it means that not only is the print easier to keep safe before framing, but it is perfectly mounted, draws your eye in to the image and shows off that stunning deckled edge and cotton rag paper. I absolutely cannot wait to see it in the frame, and hung on her wall.
(In fact, I loved it so much I decided to have a sample framed to show you just how beautiful it is.)
This is the selection of images Laura’s had to choose from - but which is your favourite?
Gorgeous blooms by the fabulous Mad Lillies.
If you’d like to keep this precious memento of your day, we can definitely chat about the various ways we can do this for you (even if you’d also like to keep your bouquet to enjoy at home or to preserve or dry). Just pop me a message about deconstructed bouquet fine art!
