Earth + Light | A Ruffles and Bells Editorial

This photoshoot was inspired by earth’s muted colours and the Australian sunlight. The textures of bunched up tulle, fluttering French lace, blush coloured roses, sun kissed eyelids and dazzling crystal dances with the shadows of the surrounding flora and scenery.


An early start to the day slowly watching as the sun rose onto the soft long grass and intertwined with the tulle. The natural light and beautiful skies of Melbourne set the scene for backdrop to the stunning handmade gowns from the debut collection of Holly Butler.


The table set up featuring dried florals to introduced a new texture in with the muted colours of the fresh flora and complimented the organic lines on the stationary. Metallic, marbled and transparent components are added and shine in the shadows.
