We were absolutely honoured to be a part of the 'Raw Romance' styled shoot by the amazing Emma of Coco & Confetti which is featured in White Magazine. Our white silk Preciosa robe is worn by the bride and our new range of plain silk robes by the bridesmaids.
Here the Coco & Confetti team share their inspiration behind the shoot.........
As soon as we started planning this shoot, themed around “Raw Romance”, we knew we wanted to feature a barefoot bride in a Grace Loves Lace gown. We wanted to capture the free-spirited nature of a wedding held away from all the distractions & complications of life and just focus on the purity of love, laughter, & a welcoming reception setting. The beautiful gown, “Genevieve“, was the perfect gown for the soft, relaxed but feminine feel of the bridal styling. The bridesmaids were also barefoot and loved the opportunity to roam through the fields in their gorgeous champagne-coloured, lace dresses – relaxed, comfortable and beyond beautiful”.
This styled photoshoot, themed around ‘Raw Romance’, is an exploration of the authentic and unadulterated beauty evident in a loving relationship when stripped bare of expectation and pretence. This underlying beauty formed the inspiration for our shoot that celebrates simplicity, honesty and a genuine romance, uncluttered by excess. Every aspect of the shoot was chosen to reflect this philosophy, using simple yet beautiful elements, carefully incorporated with attention to detail to allow the real-life couple and their love to shine.
The venue, Casa Ciani, doesn’t shy away from its roots as a former farmhouse but instead draws beauty and meaning from its natural surrounds – a country cottage nestled at the feet of a tumble rolling green hills in the Northern NSW hinterland and approached via a tree-lined boulevard. Stretching along the length of the drive was an intimate table setting for two dozen – distressed timber trestle tables and classic bentwood chairs, dressed with the textured greens and soft whites of botanical floral runners. Each place setting featured organic shaped earthenware crockery in natural tones and hand-dyed napkins, with gold accent flatware and the striking monochrome calligraphy of bespoke wedding stationery. The result was simple, honest and inviting.
The real-life couple arrived at the venue, barefoot and love-drunk, him in chinos and crisp white shirt, with the individual touch of a wooden bow tie and leather suspenders, her in a stunning ivory Grace Loves Lace gown and carrying a large gathered bouquet of native florals bound with hand- dyed silk. The two bridesmaids followed closely behind, wearing champagne lace dresses and braids of flower buds in their hair.
