Behind the scenes of White+White's Photo shoot

It’s 7am and the rain has finally stopped after weeks of horizontal downpours. It must be a good omen. It’s the day of White+White’s first ever photoshoot at Vivid Photography Studio in Kangaroo Point and the sun is blessing us with it’s presence. 

Inspired by a light filled parisienne apartment in the Marais district of Paris, the shoot took 8 weeks of meticulous planning, 7 hours of strenuous pre-shoot preparation, 6 hours of modeling and 3 hours of hair and makeup from Hair By Popular Demand and Desiree. The result was simply stunning.

Cut glass goblets from Hodge Podge Hire dazzled in the sought after sunshine streaming through the window, with sequin dresses, pearls and mercury glass shimmering in the flickering candle light. 

It was a beautiful sight, especially with our beloved border collie, Zarla, bouncing around the gorgeous pieces of furniture from interior boutique, Oliveaux , Amini Concepts, Styled Events and Epic Empire. 

Seductively scented blooms created by Nicole at Stem Design brought the scene to life with spectacular Icebreaker rose heads, blush dahlias and flamingo pink Bella Donna lilies. The intoxicating scent lingered all day as we sneakily tucked into rich chocolate macaroons and turkish flatbreads to keep us going. 

The dinner setting was finished with delicate embossed menu cards dreamt up by talented Cara at The Invitation Station and of course, no dinner party is complete without the finest patisserie desserts. With a mouth-watering selection of the most beautiful cakes we have ever laid eyes on provided by The Cake That Ate Paris, our lifestyle setting was complete. Believe us when we say they taste like heaven too.

All in all, a fabulously exhausting day doing our favourite things: creating beautiful spaces and memories with passion and heaps of fun on the side. Time for a very long snooze and the planning of our next fabulous bespoke wedding.
