3, 2, 1 Happy New Year OIP fans!

Well that’s another year done, dusted and absolutely nailed!

 For our New Years styled shoot we wanted to see the end of year through with a gorgeous, luxe, high end, sparkling celebration.  We shot at the beautiful Como Melbourne, MGallery by Sofitel in their Gold Penthouse Suite.  Perfect for any occasion, this suite is 2 levels of luxe!  As you enter you are greeted with the most amazing foyer with grand piano, living space and balcony.  There is a spiral staircase to reach the mezzanine level which has the master suite, bathroom and the most amazing bath tub! 

We styled the lower level around the piano with an explosion on balloons, blooms and an epic shimmer wall from Electric Confetti.  Amanda from Invite Me shop came well prepared with bags and bags of balloons ready to work her magic.  She created the perfect mix of green and bronzed toned balloon garland.  Chantelle Hamilton was our florist for our shoot, she went over and above to source and create the most flawless mix of fresh and dried arrangements. 

Our models for the day were Bonnie and David.  Bonnee was dressed by Shona Joy, she wore the most perfect New Years Eve party outfits, a frilled swept white cocktail dress and a gorgeous print puffy sleeve jumpsuit. David was looking very dapper in Hardy Amies suit with matching emerald pocket square.  Cool Clutch was the insulated accessory of choice for the party. Great for New Years Eve, you can keep your beverages cool while looking glam.  Mim from Love Co Beauty styled the hair and make up on our models.  She created a bronzed glam look for Bonnee with a soft styled wave.

We also styled a mini champagne and dessert bar.  We had 2 gorgeous sparkling cakes from The Butchers Daughters Cakes.  To compliment the desserts we had cake toppers, drink stirrers and signage from The Laser Cutting Studio and a glitzy gold tassel chandelier from Invite Me Shop.

We hope you had the best 2019 filled with love and success, now let’s bring on an even more amazing 2020!
