This styled shoot for expected twins was styled by Silk and Cedar Events in Melbourne on behalf of Life's Little Celebrations and featured a number of talented vendors in the collaboration. With a pretty feminine palette of soft pinks and cacti greens it has a beautiful spring vibe and presents an elegant spin on this theme.
The invitation design by ELK Prints sets up the story for guests. On the front the couple hold up a pair of near-identical reversed cactus pots - each one is painted separately to highlight the subtle differences between the twins. On opening up the invitation, the inside reveals a desert scene with portraits of the parents and all the essential party details.
The concept of “from the desert blooms the perfect pair” was created in honour of all mums and dads who are struggling with issues of fertility. We chose to showcase ‘from the desert’ representing the difficult journey and hardship they have gone through to fall pregnant and blooming reflects their joy and happiness in celebrating the precious life they have created. It is not unusual for IVF babies to born as twins so that formed part of the story we created also. This is reflected also with the line “the perfect pair” and symbolised by the prickly pear cacti.
