inspired gatherings VIII - floral design by brancoprata

If you follow us along you probably notice that we talk a lot about Inspired Gatherings, we even have a tag for it! But what does that means, what is an inspired gathering? Whenever we have time, we like to play with flowers and styling techniques! We normally shoot everything in our own studio, with natural light and of course, on film, like everything else you see on this website!!

It's basically a floral design exercise we do it here at Brancoprata, hoping we can always inspire future couples when it comes to designing their day, and making sure they understand that there is so much more to a wedding than choosing a color pallette and favorite flowers.

real wedding at parque da penha

Sometimes the chemistry between two people is so real and so intense, that the entire world moves at a different pace. That is the case with Ana and Paulo, they met in college and have been unseparable ever since! And their wedding was a true reflection of who they are, what are their values and what they cherish the most in life: each other, family and friends.

Their goal was to create the perfect setting for their wedding day, something that guests would remember forever and once they saw Parque da Penha for the first time, they knew that it was exactly what they dreamed of! The faultless venue had everything they were looking for, natural surroundings and and a unique flair like no other venue they visited. 

We designed the wedding using a mix of greenery, white flowers, and gold accents. For a personal statement by the bride, we also incorporated a few geometrical details that made the entire look a bit more modern and personal, but at the same time keep in it very romantic!

family shoot in the mountains by brancoprata

Last Winter we had the privilege of shooting Elisabete and Nelson, the photographers behind Memories Photography & Lifestyle,  and we got to spend a afternoon talking about our lives and our business!  It's always an honor to shoot a fellow photographer, and we always feel so special by doing so.

Inspired Gatherings VII

We've been designing flowers for the last 14 years and although some people think we are just a photography studio, styling and floral design are two of the services we offer our clients since the first day we were in business.

Of course we have two separate teams: one that does film photography and another one that styles and designs florals for weddings and other events! One of the questions we are asked many time over the years, is if we work together all the time! I would be lying if I told know that we don't love to work together on weddings and other events, however is completely possible to just hire our photography services, or just our floral design services!

Anyway, one of the perks of own a floral design studio with film photograper inhouse, is that everything you design is always photographed, like these flowers we are sharing today! A few leftovers from another project turned into centerpieces that hopefully can inspire you!
