In Osnabrück there is a magical place called Iko Flowers. When you enter the floral studio, you feel calmness and excitement at the same time. Anne, the lovely owner created such an atmosphere, that you don’t want to leave. There’s music and life, inspiration and talent, enthusiasm and pure joy inside.
I was capturing her while working on a beautiful bouquet for a winter wedding. We went to the garden behind the studio to pick some flowers. Anne laid everything on the big, wooden table what she collected, and took a deep breath. She started to create. Like a painter, who gently touches the canvas with the brush, she picked the pieces carefully and arranged them to a pretty and easy composition.
A butterfly should be able to fly through. Your bouquet should be light enough.
– she said, and imitating a butterfly with her hand, showed the way through the delicate flowers.
By the time she finished, it was clear for me that she’s on the right path. You know, when you meet people and you feel, they’re doing what they love. And you’re sure, they’re happy.
