Island Luxe, Grace Loves Lace’s most recent editorial by photographer Sybil Steele is the latest aphrodisiac for human eyes. Keeping with their delicate lace designs, this shoot, directed by Megan Ziems and with hair and makeup by Melissa Smith was all about capturing the essence of soul sisters. “The very dearest of friends who adore one another despite the flaws”, says Megan. “The path to the alter is such a special time for women, our friendship deepens with each momentous occasion. Finding the Dress, choosing the venue, selecting the flowers and the invitations. The list is endless, as is the bond between us.”

This romantic, ethereal shoot, which took place on Dreamtime Breach in New South Wales featured one model who immediately caught our eye. She looked strangely familiar and alas, it was Grace from our Country Strong editorial featured in our current issue of Hello May! You may also have spied her on our behind-the scenes film by The White Tree, which you can check out here.
