“The style and tones of our shoot were based around our location, an old quarry just outside of Auckland. I imagined what it would have been like if it were a castle – before it fell to ruin. Enchanting, magical, beautiful and moody. The old kauri table and settings were minimal with a focus on the forgotten, with vintage furs and brass candelabra, crystals and greenery, then the subtle mauve and maroon tones in the florals and makeup.
When planning, I started thinking about the unseen woman in editorial work – being Maori/Irish myself I felt it was the perfect opportunity to share some diversity! The South African, Maori and NZ/Cook Island ladies I chose for the shoot are all unique, beautiful and real. I am all about the Rock n Roll babe, being magical and doing what she wants – where she feels her best… and shining!” – Bianca, Stories by Bianca
I am head over heels in love with these unique engagement + wedding rings by Debra Fallowfield!
The black tableware against the wood and Eucalyptus is gorgeous! Simple and raw but with a moody luxe vibe.
