Imagine an outdoor cottage garden wedding, but inside? In our minds, anything is possible! We wanted to create a timeless and elegant editorial for couples who want an intimate wedding indoors with little garden vibes. Especially with the cooler weather ahead in Toronto. Having an indoor elopement that feels like you are outside of the snow and wind chills, would make the event one-hundred times cozier for the couple and guests.
Our editorial was inspired by Claude Monet’s painting – The Artist’s Garden at Giverny. We loved the mix of rich color tones used to depict a 1900s interpretation of a ‘Cottage Garden’, seen as an informal garden style that differed from traditional French cottage gardens of the time. In keeping with the idea of informal garden design, we purposefully curated unsymmetrical floral arrangements and handwritten calligraphy stationary on organic handmade paper. By incorporating gold flatware and dinnerware that echoed Parisian elegance, it was the perfect pairing for an intimate garden reception.
We wanted to showcase the natural essence and rawness of a cottage garden. From handmade paper to handwritten paper invitations, place cards, table numbers, vow books, and the most exquisite handmade detailed sugar flowers and tangerines on the cake, every single detail was crafted with care and purpose. To ensure guests are reminded that they are in a garden, we chose to style the floral arrangements with long stems in varying heights and directions to reflect the blowing winds in a garden.
