Tis’ the season to sparkle here at OIP, as we share with you today our utterly divine Christmas in July Editorial. Playing cheekily upon traditional elements of Christmas, we went with a more modern, bohemian twist, and boy was it gorgeous!
Nestled in the breathtaking Rusty Gate Estate, situated on the beautiful Bellarine Peninsula, this dreamy venue has open grassy paddocks and overlooks the Port Phillip Bay.
Rich and exquisite colours were seen throughout, as our models Tully Smyth, Sara Oteri and Jasmine Nieto (who also doubles as half of the talent behind all of the desserts) laughed, ate, and dazzled us all.
Thanks to the help of all involved on the day, we were able to bring OIP’s creative concept to life. The lush bohemian styling concept was translated to the grazing table, adorned with gorgeous flowers from Peony and Weasel Flower Co, beautiful stationary from Alpine Events Co, fabulous furniture from Harry the Hirer and dreamy décor from both The Small Things Co and Peppa + Peach. We couldn’t believe our eyes when we saw what the talented Platter Co had done with her bountiful platter!
In place of a Christmas tree, the gift table nestled beneath a gorgeous macramé hanging. The delicious desserts table, brought to us by the talented Love it Cakes, had everything from a caramel drip cake with fresh figs to gingerbread cupcakes, to name only a few!
Our talented hair and makeup artists from Zabrina Araya Hair + Makeup and Belinda from BD Skin Co, worked their magic on our lovely models, with the help of some gorgeous threads from Beyond Your Wardrobe.
Our fabulous photographer, Emma from Haven Still + Moving Images, directed the shoot magnificently and made the day a blast for everyone. Because who says it needs it to be December to get together in the spirit of Christmas and have a sublime day?!
