Those that know me, know how much I love flowers! I always have them scattered throughout my house, not only because I think they make a house feel like home but also because they bring a smile to my face and lift my mood if I'm ever feeling a little down. Over the years as a photographer and blogger, I've been lucky enough to be invited to a number of floral workshops, giving me the opportunity to play, learn and create beautiful floral displays. Learning the skills to arranging a beautiful display, which vase to use, whether to use chicken wire is just invaluable. I highly recommend floral workshops/retreats not only for learning something new and releasing your inner creativity but also for meeting likeminded people. They are so a great way to spend time with your girlfriends, laughing, enjoying each other and maybe getting a little competitive!
Today on the blog, we are sharing a collaborative floral workshop beautifully photographed by Helen Warner Photography. This stunning floral retreat was set on the amazing grounds of Cambo Estate along the east coast of Scotland. Foghar floral workshop was created by three talented floral designers Christin Geall, Sarah Statham and Rachael Scoot. Spread over two days, attendees are shown how to develop their floristry and business skills as well as have their gorgeous installations photographed for their portfolios.
If you are interested in attending the next Fogher workshop, it will be held again on the beautiful grounds of Camo Estate, Scotland on 8th-11th October 2018. If you are interested in attending please contact Christin, Sarah or Rachael.

My background is as a wedding & lifestyle photographer, shooting both digital and film to create authentic, soft and natural fine art photographs. Working primarily with natural light to give my work a beautiful, light and airy touch infused with soft tones.
I have always appreciated and valued the simple things in life and finding the interesting in the ordinary. Coco Lane was founded as I wanted to create something that is about an experience, the slower pace of life, cosiness and candlelight, cuddling up on the sofa with loved ones, being with the people you love, sharing food with close friends, a feeling of home, nurturing a chosen career, wanderlust travels, savouring the small moments in everyday life and just being you and enjoying a cup of tea.
I'm excited to bring you stories that promote all those moments in life that give us value and meaning; inspiring us to live beautifully.
