Add some whimsical flair to wedding photography with a dramatic peacock chair.

Catherine Gratwicke

Framed by bold and beautiful blooms, a dramatic garden chair makes a fun seat for all big day subjects - from mini 'maids to the happy couple!

WEDDING FLOWER IDEAS

Tony Marklew, from By Appointment Only Design, advises on setting the scene with blooms; 'To tie in with the whimsical feel, we kept flowers loose and romantic, with mixed roses, hydrangeas and feathery ferns climbing Fulham Palace's orchard walls.'
