Today’s lovely shoot comes from a super talented team of vendors from Cape Town, South Africa! They get together annually to produce what they call The Secret Shoot — where all the details + locations of the shoot are kept totally + completely under-wraps until it’s featured. This year it was all about the color gold. They wanted to create two distinctive environments, each depicting a different facet of this fun + versatile color, which just so happens to be one of my faves!
The first setting shares the more light-hearted + playful side of gold — with pinwheels, cupcakes + a pretty gold chaise lounge. And seriously, how cute is that golden piñata?!
Love, love this gorgeous flower crown by Anli Wahl!
The second location portrays the more decadent, totally romantic side of gold. It is set in a secluded pine forest with tons of glam details, like the shiny gold vessels, the plush French armchairs and a tiered pink + gold wedding dress — such a fun juxtaposition of styles.
And how pretty are these portraits of the couple + the horse, captured by Adene Photography?
Be sure to check out this fun behind the scenes video from Vision on Fire!
