bringing you brides

SHELENA DAWOOD The founder of floral-design and event-styling company Bloaum Studio created the stunning tablescape that inspired Pick and Mix (page 42).

CRAFTWORK From cool crocheted cotton at Willowby by Watters to floral patchwork at Justin Alexander and traditional tablecloth-embroidered lace at Costarellos, think high-end homespun with luxury artisanal elements.
