The "other" Kate's wedding

Well, she finally did it. Kate Moss married rock star Jamie Hince earlier this month. True to her own style, Kate looked amazing. It was a fabulous meeting of a perfect midsummer's eve with Edwardian style meets 1920's glamour and excess.
The Grade II listed Norman church where Kate and Jamie were married in the Cotswolds.
Kate in a bias cut gown designed by John Galliano. Her dress featured gold leaf embroidery and rhinestones.
She kept her hair very soft and loose and her makeup natural and minimal.
The tall girl at the back is Kate's younger sister. And already causing a stir in the fashion world with her pretty face.
Totally love Kate's veil. Franch lace embroidered with flowers . So 1920's !
Enroute to the chapel with her dad at her side. Handsome fellow.
I love that she had so many bridesmaids. Kate, Jamie and daughter Lila Grace.

Cool facts about the wedding:

Vogue editors (former and present) in attendance included: Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuel Alt.

Celebs in attendance included: Daphne Guiness, Jude Law, Stella McCartney, Marc Jacobs, Bryan Ferry, Karen Ellson and sooo many others....

Bridal party: 15 lovely young bridesmaids...probably one of my fave features of the wedding. How romantic and whimsical.

Official photographer: Mario Testino (surprise, surprise) and rumours of a magazine shoot of the wedding in an upcoming Vogue

Official photographer personal snaps: Mary McCartney (Stella's sister)

Champagne: copius bottles of Louis Roederer Cristal bubbly.

Inspiration: Vintage, 1920's, Edwardian countryside, Zelda Fitzgerald (wife of F. Scott Fitgerald). sidenote: Kate's engagement ring is a replica of Zelda's.

Kate's fave book: "The Beautiful and the Damned" by F Scott Fiztgerald....Mmmmm

Palm Springs meets Scotland in Toronto

We had a wonderful opportunity this past month to completely design a rooftop installation for one of our corporate clients' own home. 

 South West exposure....... thinking......desert..... dry, hot.  It is SO not cottage garden flowers and plants for this terrace. This is extreme territory !

 We needed to compile a list of plants that could survive a drought tolerant, wind exposed position. We also wanted both drama and tropical in an extreme sort of way......hence Palm Springs meets Scotland.

 Plants: a knotted pom pom Scots pine, aloe vera,  various succulents, bougainvillea (totally love), lava rocks, various cactus and other sun loving gems.

It worked very nicely!  We are so pleased with the results.....

And the client was very happy also.  We received an email this morning saying they spent the evening on their terrace enjoying their Palm Springs meets zen like garden, in Toronto.
