I think it’s safe to say, all of the incredible vendors involved in this stunning shoot are hopeless romantics, working their magical skills into creating something that not only takes your breath away, but makes you want to relive it time and time again...

With Australia having limited architectural dreamscapes that would take us into a world filled with European vibes, Deux Belettes was the diamond in the rough hidden in the North Coast of New South Wales - Byron Bay hinterland to be exact. Little did we know this place was the fitting match to our hopeless romantic dreams and the perfect back drop for our talented team to create their magic.

- The palette we decided on was filled with muted tones of yellows, oranges and pinks perfectly matched with soft greenery and whites from the talented floral designer, Gwen Floral Co. The elegance of Ella Moda dresses, complimenting the gorgeous tones of yellow and creams from the architectural surroundings, hair seamless in execution by Sarah Neill and flawless makeup, encompassing the natural beauty by Hayley Welk, accompanied with princess worthy crowns and jewellery by Little White Couture, it really was a fairytale come true.

The models, Tara and Kiefer were standout features in the breathtakingly picturesque surrounds of the European Villas and gardens, that displayed handmade and handpicked pieces of France that were brought back to Australia after each yearly trip the owners made. Kiefer dressed in a classical tux, by Black Jacket Suiting makes every heart stop in its wake.

Hopeless Romantic was perfectly shot by our fine art film photographer, Lauren Olivia and our incredible videographer, Sam Fregonese and all pulled together by the wizardry of Kirsty from Storybook & Co.
