Walking through Manhattan one chilly, wet February day, my mood was lifted when I spied these brilliant red 'umbrellas' out of flowers, proudly standing outside a florist's shop. They were so jolly and bright, with their ribbons blowing in the breeze, and my damp mood was instantly lifted. I think the florist took their cue from Balinese wedding canopies, which are similar in shape but made out of beautiful fabrics.
It's a crummy photo taken with my iPhone (testament to why I am a planner, NOT a photographer) but I think you get the idea. I imagine these for a sunny wedding out of doors, be it on a beach or a garden or a huge meadow, with a few flowers around the base.
Where have you found wedding inspiration in unexpected places?
