"Our vision for this bridal session included a discussion on the bare necessities we associate with an organic and timeless vibe, and building off of those essentials to create the feel of a bride who is timeless, full of character and alluring. The essentials we chose were a stunning, layered dress, full of movement, intentional florals and other natural elements speaking to the organic element, as well as a location that makes the viewer ponder its history. We wanted to keep things simple, but also full of thoughtful details."

only

fools fall in love, and that could be said of Candice and Brett – if only in the sense that a chance meeting on April Fool’s Day was the start of their relationship! Then, a few years later, the couple found themselves in Paris on New Year’s Eve, where Brett surprised Candice on the Pont Passerelle Solférino by writing his proposal

on

traditional

lovers’

lock. With so much romance in their past, it was only appropriate that they chose to kick off their future in another romantic location, this time the famously beautiful gardens of Babylonstoren, in South Africa. The venue provided inspiration in more ways than one – not only did all the florals come from the farm, but its connection to Delft pottery was reflected in the blue and white palette and Delft vases and linens on the tables. The final touch was a surprise white dessert installation, including Babylonstoren’s legendary carrot cake.

GROWING UP I SPENT many happy summers at the beach with my family. My father was a History teacher, California born-and-raised, who loved to show his children the world, so when summer came around it meant we packed up our car and hitched up our tent trailer for a grand time. One of his favourite places to go was the El Camino Real, making our way down the coast to see all the California missions. San Juan Capistrano was always my favourite – I loved how the mission had old and new sections, and crumbled ruins from earthquakes that had toppled its sunstone walls. Every spring, swallows came and made their homes in the ruins and vines would bloom, and I was fascinated by the contrast between young and old. Eventually I came across an old ghost story connected to San Juan Capistrano and was inspired to combine it with my own happy memories to create this shoot. The story tells of two young lovers, who were forbidden to be together but would slip away and meet secretly. When caught, the girl was forced to do penance at morning mass. During the service, a huge earthquake struck, turning the church to rubble. It is said that on the night of a half-moon one can see her face in the window of the Great Stone Church, still doing penance for her forbidden love‌ " CARRIE MOE, STYLIST

ayrshire garland ima ges by orange photog ra phie | ayrshire | scotland When Montana-based photographers Samantha and Reid reached out via social media for like-minded creatives to collaborate on a shoot during their trip through Scotland, a beautiful partnership was born between themselves and local floral talents, Pyrus. Hoping to show a new and unexpected side to Scotland – beyond the typical tartan and Highland scenery – the team took a conceptual approach, and chose the Kelburn Estate in Ayrshire as their location. They were inspired by the Graffiti Project, an extraordinary piece of contemporary art which dominates the walls of Kelburn Castle, and both challenges and sits peacefully within the surrounding natural landscape. “We wanted to explore that maverick spirit, and bring a sense of something unexpected and surreal to the glen, taking bold, primary colours from the mural and incorporating land art and site-specific pieces into the shoot,” Fiona and Natalya of Pyrus explain. They sourced unique, beautiful gowns from Rowanjoy in Edinburgh and added contemporary tweed pieces by Walker Slater to add an edge to the look while retaining a sense of the traditional, and showcasing local artisan techniques. For the bouquet, they opted for a softer, more romantic feel, combining garden blooms with foraged woodland treasures and taxidermy wings for an unconventional touch. “We are influenced by nature in its entirety,” they explain, “and often use materials such as wings or seaweed, or found objects like skulls in our work – we find the complexity more interesting and contemporary than flowers alone.”

Mountain Princess

images by dar ya kamalova | dolomiti mountains | italy


She walks alone against the dusky sky, With something of the manner of a queen– Her gesturing peaks, imperious and high; Her snowy brow, serene. Under her feet, a tapestry of pine; Veiling her marble figure, purple haze, Draped with a scarf of clouds at timber-line, In a billowy silken maze.
