I've had the pleasure of knowing Cayla of It Just Blooms for over five years now. It became very apparent to me early on that she had a serious talent in floral design and a passion for everything that blooms! When Cayla mentioned that she was headed out to Bonnie Heath Estate (I highly suggest you check this place out if you haven't been before) to source Lavender I jumped on the opportunity to collaborate with her and document the process! The sun was high that afternoon but luckily we had her good friend and partner in crime Sarah there to assist with a sun diffusion umbrella. We were able to sample some of the estates wine and cider, learn way more than I thought I would about the different varieties of lavender, and took a mini tour of the property. I loved that fact that they approach everything with a green and sustainable mindset!
Having shot so many variations of floral arrangements at different weddings, I can't stress enough to new clients just how important your flowers are.. They add so much to your photos on the day and bring life to your reception, so budget for it! Just as important is making sure you select the right florist for the venue and for the style you're going after.
I've taken the time to ensure that I align myself with modern, driven artists in all of the complimentary wedding vendor areas and needless to say It Just Blooms is one of them..
I'll let the photos tell the rest of the story!
