“I feel extremely privileged that I had Florence shoot this day for me. I'd had Flo in mind to shoot this since the idea came to me to have a photoshoot with my newly made wedding décor pieces. I've followed her work for some time on Instagram, and I think anyone scrolling through her images wishes they were part of the special day she was shooting (as she captures the most beautiful moments which also look filled with fun and love!).
Upon meeting with Flo some time before the proposed shoot, I was instantly reassured I was in the best hands. Over a Gin and Tonic, she listened to my barrage of questions about everything from the Wedding industry to the shoot and products themselves. I left the meeting feeling totally inspired and the time and detail Flo had gone into I found really heartwarming.
From that meeting onward, I bounced ideas off Flo to which she always answered honestly and professionally up until the day of the shoot. Like all things, I had a few glitches the night before the shoot which Flo instantly offered help and guidance on (again proving how much of a superwoman she is).
When shoot day finally arrived, the weeks of preparations and planning had definitely caught up on me and I was in serious need of someone really 'taking the reins'.
Enter, Florence! She knew exactly what we needed to do in the time that we had and what shots would work well at different times of day (something I hadn't even thought about). She guided me through the entire day; from getting the makeup artist working on the models while we prepped shoot locations, to assisting with wardrobe (she even leant me her wedding dress... if that's not going the extra mile I don't know what is!).
When the models and sets were ready, Flo absolutely came into her own. I truly felt I was watching a master at work. The models were doing what she wanted without them even realising as she created such a relaxed and warm atmosphere.
While Flo was shooting, smiles and laughter were in abundance. I for one was mesmerised by this idea I'd had come alive with the help of the amazing models, makeup artist and Flo.
By the end of the day, I was completely blown over by how smoothly it went and how WONDERFUL a job Flo had done to make my ideas come to life.
Her turnover time for editing the images and getting them sent to me was truly record breaking. Opening the files was more exciting than the past ten Christmases put together!
The images speak for themselves. They are pure magic. Florence's vast experience of the wedding industry shone through as every single image was just golden. I must have looked through the images a thousand times and I still beam at the screen when I see the photos and remember that glorious day.
The images have been used in every element of my business. My business cards, fliers, display boards, website images and social media/marketing are all covered now that Flo has provided me with such a range of images. I truly wouldn't be where I am today with a gorgeous display of what I offer had it have not been for Florence. I am eternally grateful for the time, energy and love she puts into her work and will never forget the Fronissa Décor photoshoot. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Flo!”
Last year I teamed up with the lovely Christy from Fronissa Decor to do a shoot with her handmade Macrame Arbour and other decorations at her home in Wales and we had such a fun day - not least because I got to shoot with a load of my beautiful friends too! The woodland setting was absolutely perfect for showing off how the arbour could look at a boho outdoor wedding ceremony, it definitely adds that little ‘something’ like an altar that you would have in a church wedding. She also makes macrame bridal bouquet wraps, hangers and glass bowl decorations, barefoot anklets, plant dyed ribbons, macrame chair backs and more.
Seeing all Christy’s creations come to life in the trees and woods around her home was so wonderful and I really, really hope to get to shoot one at a real wedding soon! Any couples interested go check out her website at https://fronissa.com/
