Rustic Summer Garden Inspired Workshop on Cecelina's Blog


I love working on workshops primarily because you get so many takes from each different photographer and you can really see how multi-faceted the art of photography is. Working with Cecelina is always a pleasure and we loved helping her and Crimson Blue create a cosy and secluded feel on a Summer Garden, all rustic and dull of texture, in the very heart of London.


We wanted to bring in the modern feel for the tables cape by adding transparent acrylic Ghost chairs to compliment muted grey hues and vibrant green arrangements. Another option was to use sleek Masters chairs for their soft and minimalist feel.


We loved creating a rustic, foliage covered backdrop alongside Crimson Blue in order to give everyone a perfect opportunity to practice photography using shadows and avoid harsh light from the windows. Branches and foliage, alongside a chiffon drape created a rustic feel in tune with the table garnished by traditional Italian delicatessen and summer fruit.

Finally, a chiffon draped table was a perfect stage for beautiful cakes by Elizabeth's Emporium Design!
