Behind The Collection

I’m so excited to have recently launched my second collection of wedding invitations and stationery!   For me, this collection is all about those small, little moments in your relationship that no-one else sees, but for the both of you it's essentially what makes up your relationship, and its those delicate moments that makes you fall in love with that person so much more. Move over grand gestures, its all about the little, somewhat familiar moments that happen in your every day life.    Bloom On Babe was the first one I designed for this collection.

She’s a florist from Moscow, and her arrangements to me, were literally works of art.    I definitely am not a flower person, and I can’t really tell you the first thing about types of flowers and what season certain flowers are in. But I can say that Polina’s work isn’t like what you normally see, the colours, texture’s and shapes in her arrangements are so beautiful…and different! And I’m sure she’s the only person in the whole world who can make crocs look oh so stylish (as she casually styles them with her creations). Photos by Polina Chentsova Looking at Polina’s work had me wondering, what is it about seeing something so different...
