I like the contrast of blokes and flowers - the yin and the yang of it. What started out as a post about weddings got a bit side-tracked when I came across this wedding inspiration shoot I did nearly a year ago. No stunning bride here. Just a blokey twist and a sprinkle of humour. A floral crown, an extra-large sheath bouquet, and a willing model in a wild and whimsical wedding location.
Until yesterday, David was leading a quiet life on a dresser in a lovely house by the sea. He wanted for nothing - perhaps a few clothes and a somewhat larger appendage... but he was content to just be.
He smiled to himself as a bouquet of rustic winter flowers was placed beside him and he was happy to be photographed with them because they were so pretty. Little did he know what lay in store...
For most of my working life I've been a teacher, and for most of that time I've taught art. I've also been a café owner, an art gallery owner, an au pair and a bank teller - proof of what they say that the new normal is to have more than one career in your lifetime. It's always been easy to fill in forms that asked for my occupation and easier still to explain to people what I did for a job.
