Issue No.12  November 2013



Wedding Flowers, decorations & Styling by Patty Maouhtouris,

owner & wedding director of Summerlees, Sutton Forest


 Fluffing is a term that Stylists refer to as the last minute details that need to be done. Just before the wedding starts... there is a lovely quiet time when everything is perfectly positioned and in place ready for the event. This is time before the caterers arrive, the florists have finished their displays and all their buckets & floral mess has gone. The waiters are quietly preparing the bar and co-ordinating the drinks for a the arrival of the guests. Table settings are in place and waiting for a little last delicate spray of water on the flowers. This is the most perfect time to capture images of the room before any of the guests arrives and move the chairs. I love this time, I had a window of a half an hour to photograph this gorgeous setting before the bride arrived...and I captured Patty fluffing... straightening a little place card and checking that everything was perfectly ready for the special night ahead, even her peacock was fluffed and ready!

Styling is a reflection of our personality – our tastes, our power of observation, our own cultural upbringing and our talent for originality.


Creativity is a fundamental human compulsion to invent or to compose. Take time each week to create your own ideas, however humble you may think they are. Look closely at the details in everything and notice the colours, the shapes and the deep inner feelings you have when you are attracted to something. 


Creative expression comes from the many objects we have around us in our lives, a bowl of flowers, a favourite teapot on a lovely table, a painting or a garden on a misty day.


Creativity is inspired by the wonders of our universe.  When you are in the right state of heart and soul, just like magic you can tap into the endless flow of universal creative energy and resources and inspiration comes straight to you. -
