We instantly fell in love with Dandy Flower Co's wild garden when we visited last year just after she opened. The untamed rows of varying sized and shaped dahlias, the brown and burnt orange sunflowers, the anemones playing with the cosmos... can you say a garden is sexy? It was real, unfiltered, and effortlessly beautiful. We planned the shoot for October, just before the season's first frost. The timing couldn't have been more perfect: the autumn leaves were changing, grass was drying, and flowers were starting to droop, causing this untamed, romantic setting. It was gorgeous. Our theme quickly became "natural and effortlessly cool," inspired by the garden and the modern trend running in high-fashion and interior design. We played on the juxtaposition between structured and free, shown in the clean lines and loose fitting sleeves of the Gamila gown, Libby's script lettering and modern font paper goods, and the lush, garden-inspired arrangements and glossy ceramics on the table.
