‘Transformation, Nature and Love’ A Cancelled Wedding Shoot on the Brighton Rooftops

2020 has seen so many cancelled weddings, so many weddings put on hold and so many weddings postponed to next year. It really hasn’t been the best year for getting married. So when I got sent this shoot a few months ago I knew I had to share it with you. Becci and Mike should have got married on 23rd May, however Covid and the national lockdown put an end to their plans. Instead of getting upset about it though, they decided to celebrate their wedding anyway with this amazing ‘cancelled wedding shoot’. The shoot took place on a private rooftop in Brighton, and it is just perfect. Gemma from The Bloominati Florist put together an expert team of suppliers and came up with the concept for this beautiful rooftop celebration. Filling the space with deep, rich tones, a plethora of gorgeous flowers,  foliage, rugs and vintage boho props, this shoot is just breathtaking. Good luck to Becci and Mike for their wedding next year, at least you have these fabulous images till then.

A space transformed entirely into a secret garden bohemian haven for two people to celebrate their love above the rooftops of the bustling Brighton seafront.

Becci the bride said

“We were due to get married on the 23rd of May 2020 but sadly due to COVID, we have had to move it to 2021. That’s why we were so looking forward to the styled shoot – it felt like a nice excuse to dress up and imagine what our day might be like next year when we eventually can have our wedding day!”

Gemma the florist tells us more

Real-life couple Becci and Mike were meant to be married on 22nd May 2020. Like many couples, the consequences of the pandemic had forced many to move their date way into the future, putting more space between being them and their Big Day. We decided to stage a rehearsal wedding for them above the busy streets of Brighton – along with a fabulous team, we transformed a space into an intimate setting complete with a flower meadow installation and rustic furniture with stunning results.

The theme of our shoot was transformation, nature and love. The wild and whimsical flower meadow featured a riot of moody burgundies, silky caramels and glimmering bronze tones teamed with buttermilk and berry shades formed the colour palette, which included Dahlias, Toffee Roses, Cappuccino roses, Queen Anne’s Lace, Lisianthus and a lush selection of seasonal foliage. Becci’s fun, playful personality warranted a statement gold skirt which was paired with a stunning crop lace top with rose gold platform heels, complimenting her surroundings beautifully. The Groom wore a slick, tan tailored suit to bring their combined look together as one. Details on the day included delicate
hand-made Hydrangea earrings, a luxe robe and garter, delicate petal confetti, silk ribbons in taupe,
chocolate and tan shades, and an incredible Macrame banner created specifically to frame the
unbelievable view from the rooftop.

We wanted to accomplish two things from our styled shoot – sustainability in building the floral installation (no floral foam was used for the installation) and unique, whimsical images that the couple could have forever, whilst showcasing the fantastic and hard work of our team.
