Of course, Marie of Lil Elements is behind this one – her romantic, utterly beautiful styling is always easy to spot a mile off! Marie enlisting the help of photographer Snaps by Tiffany to bring this magic spring dream look to life. Floral designer Ohara Flora made this look her own, with delicate flowers – dyed phalaenopsis orchid, roses, hydrangea and more in shades of lilac, peach, spring green and blush all creating a modern romance take on a spring rainbow.
Model Jessica Holmlund, who was styled in beautiful spring tones for hair and makeup by Rebecca Shardlow was dressed in two stunning gowns by Australian designer Tanya Anic. One, an elegant lace number, that is every so slightly ethereal; the other a ballgown of blush pink and a handmade, one of a kind masterpiece that is what all my dreams are made of.
The spring colour carried through to a tablescape, with pieces by SP Events. White & lavender linens dressed with, of course more blooms (and a few butterflies, for a little fairytale whimsy!), complementing a tiered cake and cupcakes adorned with sugar flowers by cake artist Sweet Clouds Baker. The focal point, a table runner topped with spring-inspired cakes. “You’ve seen floral table runners and even simple petals along with the table but have you ever tried a cupcake table runner? ” laughs Marie. Paper pieces, carefully curated by Inkberry Calligraphy bringing the look together, with gold wax seals, watercolour botanical illustrations, lilac envelopes and of course, stunning calligraphy. A blush velvet ring box from Artiste Saku the finishing touch.
And we can’t forget the matching dog, says Marie, “The best part of the shoot is bringing in your best friend, the happy Samoyed dog for your special occasion.” Can all editorials come with fluffy pups now, please?
