With this fortnight's theme of 'Excess' in mind I thought I'd experiment with a little flat lay shoot, featuring some of the products that were inspiring me this week! After spotting a stunning reference picture (see top pic) I was drawn to decadent celebrations, glittering nights and styling that was bold, glamorous & luxurious... yet effortless. (The kind of wedding you'd spend on the dancefloor all night with your guests, champagne in hand, wearing glamorous gowns with heels kicked off!) I was imagining a decadent outdoor celebration under the stars, long communal tables accented with antique brass vases, gold cutlery, crystal cut glassware / vases & plenty of ambient lighting (crystal chandeliers, lanterns, flickering candles). 

I stuck to a rich palette of gold, black and burnished metals off-set with a base of fresh white & finished with black orchids. I'm obsessed with this gold sequinned Aje dress which I fell in love with after spotting it at the recent Elle Australia launch! Wouldn't it make the most divine wedding gown for a bride who wants to wear something a little daring & extravagent?

I'll be putting these little shoots together each week in our Daily Inspiration emails, so be sure to join our Mailing List here!
