In Search of Alchemy
In Search of Alchemy

Tune: "If I were a geisha would I find you in my blush. If I were a painter would I find you in my brush. Ink commits to paper what time will dissolve. And all through the world is where I find you" -  Justin Tebbutt, Where I Find You (play song in gallery below)

Mood: Heirloom, Apothecary, Fleeting, Antiquarian, Timeless, Enhanted, Secret

Palette: Clear Greens, Seafoam Grey Glass, Opaque Whites, Creams and Sepias, Faded Blush & Peach, Violet

Decor/Styling: Inspired by the idea of wildly overgrown and long forgotten gardens, hidden spaces that time forgot, enchanted settings revealed only to those who know how to find their way there. Fleeting moments of chemistry unfolding in glasshouses, the secret language of flowers, the alchemy and euphoria of courtship, love unfurling. A patina of layered, weathered textures with cues drawn from sunrooms and rustic garden sheds. Long wooden tables, glasses milky with age, soft silvers and crumpled heirloom linens. Armchairs and faded florals, blooms scattered across surfaces, delicate dishes of botanical food, flowers arranged specimen style in old perfume bottles.

A bridal party in an array of assorted lace, textures and tints of white and the palest botanical greens. The modesty of high collars and billowing sleeves offset with sheer silks skirts trailing through gardens as they're explored on foot. Heirloom set rings and superfine chains suspended around necks, housing miniature lockets and secret pictures. Flowergirls in whimsical off whites and hair dotted with micro blooms. Bouquets that look positively wild and plucked straight from the garden, bound in a loose knot of silk ribbons, an afterthought, effortlessly styled.
