It is impossible not to mention the remarkable talent that is Sophia Veres. Not only is her beautiful photography so dynamic and warm, full of texture and really natural, she is an absolute delight to work with. She has an incredible eye for stunning compositions, and stealthily captures detail and moment. Coupled with the dynamic duo of Gaby and Tye, we had the ultimate team. G and T Film are utterly exceptional. Jumping onboard with the wayward ideas, they weaved their magic and created a whimsical storyline and devastatingly beautiful film. The film and photographs tell the tale of Aurora preserved for hundreds of years, surrounded by decaying flora in the most beautiful of houses.
a timeless romance
Ephemeral Beauty was a unique opportunity to be wildly imaginative and free with a design concept, juxtaposing the elegant natural decay of flowers, with imagery from the preservation of ‘Sleeping Beauty’. Unlike so much of the current styled shoot inspiration, the central notion of this editorial was to embrace the ephemeral nature of flowers and their inevitable decomposition.
Came House is the most beautiful Palladian country house set within the gorgeous Dorset countryside. The beautiful domed conservatory was the perfect setting to start our fairytale.
A pervading sense of time standing still as Aurora sleeps, is extenuated by a decaying dried backdrop. In true fairytale style, as Aurora is rescued from her slumber and a romance develops, a few fresh flowers are incorporated into the designs.
