Petra Cremming of Pomp and Splendour arrived with the most beautiful buckets of blooms for the shoot.
Petra contacted me a little while ago and told me all about her business - she has been an actress, and now specialises in creating drama of a different kind - with flowers. I asked if she'd like to be involved in this shoot, and proceeded to give her a long-winded description of the kind of floral look I was after - and quick as a flash she came back to me and said, "Yep, got it. Marie-Antoinette meets Frida Kahlo". Yep, she got it, and the flowers were amazing. You will see them in the M Mag in few weeks time.
And, I now have a new favourite rose - Oh Mr Lincoln how amazing you smell!
In the meantime, do check out her beautiful work and blog here:
