I LOVE this.
It makes me want to wear some kind of spangly turquoise eyeliner whilst languishing idly in a field strewn with daisies.
Sarah at Leafy Couture has created some inspirational florals for your viewing pleasure, and I might be biased, but there is nothing like a bride with a fresh bloom or two to decorate her barnet if you want to evoke the whole bohemian chic vibe.
And there is ombre. Oh yes. Dippy hippy waves with purple bits on the end – I definitely want me some of those.
Sarah from Leafy Couture: The flower girl Shoot- a rocking, hippy flower girl shoot- the concept was to play with flowers and hair to move to a more deconstructed relaxed look, to inspire brides and to showcase different looks with hair styles and flowers.
The floral concept of the shoot was to show brides and their maids how to wear flowers in their hair whether to go for a full on floral crown, a daisy hippy boho vibe or to add a delicate ethereal feel.
The first flower look for the model was a full on floral crown of Heaven roses, wax flower and green hydrangea, it was complimented by the delicate waves Jodie had created. This look was all about big, bold drama lots of romance. It has a feel of pre Raphaelite women with the models flowing hair but with the modern strong make up it nods to a more modern Lana Del Ray too.
The next floral look we wanted to go really delicate, a fragrant circlet of rosemary, bright blue cornflowers, rosemary and ruscus. The feel was more boho, more floaty and hippy. It would suit a barefoot bride or a festival inspired bride.
We then added florets of white hydrangea to the models hair to go really floaty ethereal and delicate, very sophisticated and elegant. It added a touch of romance to the funky hair bow Jodie created.
The floral corsage created with vibrant lilac scabious, green hydrangea and foliage is a great idea for brides who want to wear flowers but want to incorporate them in to a more dramatic hairstyle, it was teamed with a relaxed textured bouquet.
The epitome of floaty, flowers in your hair relaxed vibe is the daisy chain, we updated this idea by using chamomile, scabious buds, rosemary and pittosporum. The models hair was combed out with floaty waves, tiny plaits and little daisy heads weaved in. Perfect for the hippy 1970’s inspired bride with flowers in her hair and bare feet…..
The last look we created was for a festival rock inspired bride, Jodie added purple hair extensions and an amazing waterfall plait, we brought our the colour with a floral necklace of scabious and clematis.
I love this for a real rocky festival feel, showing that you can be yourself on your wedding day and bring your personality through.

I can’t decide which one I like best to be honest.
Loving the chunky plait with delicate hydrangea bundles…but then I am also partial to the tumbling surfer chick plaits and flower crowns.
Any take your fancy?
