We’ve got something pretty lovely to share with you all today. Whether you’re dreaming of a flock of petal-scattering mini maids (a la Kate Moss), have an extra special little lady in your life who will be waltzing down the aisle by your side, or you simply need cheering up, then you’ve come to the right place.

TNWC business Damselfly Flower Girls is run by creative mother/daughter team Faith and Naomi, who create gorgeous eco-chic  flower girl dresses designed to complement your bridal gown.

As well as some beautiful pictures from their recent photoshoot, they’ve kindly sent us a super cute video – a sneak peak behind the scenes – that might just make your day, and bring to life how pretty these dresses are.

But first, over to Faith to tell you about how the gorgeous shoot location helped to inspire the design of the dresses…

An inspirational setting

The venue for the shoot was Walcott Hall in Shropshire, a truly special place that fits perfectly with the Damselfly aesthetic. The owners are talented curators of gorgeous things and have created an elegant but homely atmosphere that is grand but not over done.

We loved the faded chintz sofas, the ancient silk carpet hanging on the wall with its pattern worn by centuries of dancing feet, and the open fires that we lit to keep our models warm. We had the early 19th century ballroom to ourselves for the day and were in our element.

We wanted the overall feel to be one of simple elegance and we added narrow sashes, some with hand-beading and some with hand-painted flowers to match the delphinium blues and rose pinks in the flower crowns. The look felt just right for an English country wedding.

It’s all in the details

As well as the ready-to-wear dresses available in the online shop on our website, a semi-bespoke service is available where you can mix up your favourite elements of a dress to create a unique design.

By adding hand-worked beading, lace or silk chiffon feathers for example, you can create a truly individual look.

I adore these dresses, the light and floaty fabric makes the little girl in me want one of my own to twirl around in. If you’re looking for dresses for flower girls then you must pop over to the Damselfly website for a browse.

There’s plenty of styles to inspire you including those that would be perfect for a vintage or country garden wedding, and I can’t imagine you be short of little volunteers willing to play dress up!

As promised, here is the delightful video – enjoy!

That is just gorgeous! I adore the combination of the white fabric with the pretty floral and the piping. It’s truly beautiful.
