Love is A Journey

Love is a Journey was the theme set for this charming engagement photoshoot. Created for Confetti Fair the shoot was inspired by the concept of "earth". Styled by Jillian from The Simple Party it takes it's inspiration from the natural earthy beauty of our world and celebrates the deep rooted spirit from which true love is bound.

Love is a celebration – a journey – a collection of thoughts & feelings – everything on the table relates to the all important thing in life – finding your true love - Drawing from the colours and textures of the earth I created a relaxed bridal shower table. Set outside in a gorgeous courtyard, the table was laid with and eclectic mix of display stands and platters incorporating natural elements such as stone, wood, paper and metal. Upon the display sat proudly the beautiful desserts in shades of greens, greys and sandy whites. The earthy tones on the table are contrasted by pretty floral arrangements featuring orange and peach. Guests could take home party favours - created in little glass bottles, labelled & filled with organic tea. Hand painted leaves and feathers scattered around the table symbolising items in life that may have been collected or walked over on the path to find that one true ‘love’.
