Last month my parents and I attended the RHS Flower Show which takes place once a year in Cardiff’s Bute Park. It’s always been a popular show and I’ve been meaning to go for a few years (being a floral photographer I should attend shouldn’t I). This year my parents invited me to join them and I had a great time!! So many different plants that I’ve never photographed before! It was absolute paradise!
The weather was absolutely beautiful and the atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed. Many people of different ages were really enjoying themselves and having a jolly good time! Unfortunately, due to the sun’s brightness I wasn’t able to capture any of the plants outdoors but I got some great shots of flowers in the venues!! I’ve already edited them all and I shall be showing them on my floral photography Instagram @redixonphotography.
I’m hoping to start selling some images soon so stay tuned for that…
They were selling all kinds of knick knacks for the garden too!! My favourites had to be the water fountains! I’m a sucker for a nice water fountain and the designs were gorgeous!!
There were also tonnes of food stalls selling local welsh produce. Mam and I treated ourselves to some nice cheese which after a month is still going strong and still in need of eating!!
There were also live musicians performing which really set the mood of the whole event!! Hopefully one day I’ll manage to go and visit the London RHS Flower Show, which obviously ten times bigger!! They also have a massive garden competitions and the designs are to die for!!!! Can you imagine how many flowers and how many floral images I would take there? Not to mention actual gardens?! I definitely need to go!!
