Are you searching for some inspiration that’ll ignite the warm fuzzies within you? Well look no further, friends. This styled shoot by Hope and Lace’s Sydney office (they are also based in Brisbane), Scott Surplice Photography and Goodness Gracious Media will give you plenty of ideas to play with. Located on Manly’s iconic beachfront, Beachside Dojo was transformed into a pink palace filled with lush blooms in shades of soft pink, white, peach and red by Merci Bouquet.

This floral-filled shoot had a sweet, playful vibe complete with eclairs by Croquembouche Patisserie, a cake by All Things Sweet By Carissa, a decorative neon heart sign by Acquired Style & Hire and sprig-garnished pink (yes, pink!) martinis. The rustic wooden tables were brightened up with delicate embossed cutlery, Fox & Ramona plates and the coolest little favours by Custom Favours – tea leaf filled test tubes.

Aleksandra Flowers & Handwriting supplied gorgeous stationery while Hope and Page, Grew & Co and Mr and Mrs Smith helped gussy up model Lucina Gray while Makeup By Megan worked her magic on hair and makeup. The result, thanks also to Decorative Events and Lime Lifestyle, was a simple space dressed up with vivacious florals, silver details and, in the end, one hell of a styled shoot. Huzzah!
