There is something so magical about being up when the rest of the world is sleeping, something so beautiful about that first beam of light from the sun, peeking from the horizon. It’s so fresh, bright, soft and strong at the same time. This was the feeling we tried to convey throughout this editorial. It was all about embracing the light and our natural surroundings and creating something feminine but powerful and glamorous yet down-to-earth. The juxtaposition of those factors working together in beautiful rhythm. We found a little corner under a majestic tree in Centennial Park to convey that untouched, mysterious feeling reminiscent of early mornings before moving to an area where our beautiful model, Tay, bathed in the glorious sun, symbolic of new beginnings. We chose stunning gowns by Inbal Dror and Alon Livne from Helen Rodrigues Bridal as statement features for the shoot. Rather than putting together an elaborate styled set-up, our beautiful friend/stylist Sandra from Simply Peachy chose to keep things simple and focus on the gowns and the environment, keeping the colour palette muted to ensure a cohesiveness in the creative direction. We added mysterious touches by way of a beautiful floral necklace that creeped down Tay’s neckline and gorgeously textured bouquet that incorporated ferns foraged from our wonderful florist, Sarah’s backyard.
“ Within you is the light of a thousand suns.”
