An Autumn Retreat

The hectic wedding season almost over, I escaped to a little weekend retreat together with some other lovely ladies from the wedding industry.

Michaela put together a wonderful welcome package for all of us. We received a handmade styling bowl by Tuias, a beautiful set of hand-dyed silk ribbons by Seidenband and a wonderful linen apron by not PERFECT LINEN.

We also wanted to share our knowledge amongst ourselves so we did some foraging and learned to make flower arrangements and styling with the guide of Michaela and Lotta of Hey Look. May I say we did prrrretty good!

We photographers, as in Katja Scherle who flew all the way from Germany, Petra Veikkola and I couldn't help ourselves and wanted to just shoot everything because everything was just so beautiful and the light and the place and and!  - So it was good that the ladies told us to just put the cameras down and get our hands on the flowers and start creating.

On a mini vacation you can't go without having great food and wine, so we had an expert, Mikko, from Corner France give us a private wine tasting and Romany of Aan Tafel made us some scrumptious cake. Wine and cake, what more do you need?

All I really want to say that I enjoyed myself that weekend. I could really let my hair down and just relax for a moment. I've gotten some amazing new friends during these past couple of years and they really are invaluable to me. So thanks ladies!
