A Lavender Field Love Shoot

Christmas 2012 has been and gone and we've stepped into 2013 and have now started de-Christmassing (read: de-cluttering). We're getting psyched for Valentine's Day and wedding season preps - now, is there anything more Valentines-y or wedding-y than love and hearts? Nope, not to me anyway.
Here's a sweet engagement shoot that celebrates love, hearts, and all things pretty, styled by Charley Beard of London Bride and shot by Eddie Judd. With so many creative inspirational and styled shoots on blogs and magazines it's refreshing to see a real couple, with real love, and real smiles, in a beautiful location, styled just so with minimal fuss.
How lush is this lavender field?



Pretty pinwheels featured in the bouquet and décor, a little afternoon tea set-up with vintage crockery, sparkling heart macarons, springy blooms and lacey linen to match the dress, baby's breath in her hair, ribbons and tulle all come together in one of the most romantic picnic set-ups.



 A floral belt!

I was so inspired by this shoot that I created the Lavender Fields macaron soon after. Natural lavender buds infused in rich cream and laced through smooth dark Belgian chocolate to add a deep and floral tone to the ganache. Love at first bite.

Cake Smashing Baby
Is cake smashing the dumbest cake trend ever?


So apparently people are actually buying cakes with the sole intention to destroy them for a photo. For realsies, it’s a thing, and it’s called the cake smash. And if you’re anything like me, the thought of a celebration cake smashing, smooshing or squishing is pretty horrifying. But that’s exactly what some people are doing ON PURPOSE when their kidlet turns one.
