Adorable Leonora

The David Austin Leonora rose is described as ‘the epitome of classic elegance and understated style’ – and it’s true, it’s quite simply beautiful. Palest ivory, ruffles upon ruffles of petals and fragrance that’s fresh and citrussy.

To showcase the rose as a cut flower for weddings the team at David Austin invited us to collaborate with them on a styled shoot, depicting a contemporary city wedding. The views over London from the terraces at SkyGarden were jaw dropping and created the perfect backdrop for the gleaming dining table and glassware. The star of the show was of course Leonora, arranged, simply and abundantly by our lovely florists.
