Tonight on The Edit, LENZO feels the love with a sneak peek into our dream Valentine's Day Date, shot once again by one of our fave photographers, Kassi from Hello Darling Photography.
The editorial was inspired by the idea of a relaxing + romantic date at home and was shot at the private residence of interior extraordinaire Lynda Gardener. Lynda is famous for her understated luxe, so we decided to brighten her breathtaking white canvas with an abundance of flowers from Mary Mary. These floral superstars were responsible for not only the floral arrangements, but also THAT hanging centre piece over our Veuve filled bath... #whatdreamsaremadeof.
The loft was dressed with homewares from the lovely team at Zakkia. We are especially loving their white + brass candles, as well as the super cool concrete trays. Watch this space ladies, as we see concrete taking a rise as material of choice over marble this party season, as it adds a slight industrial feel to our obsession with all things #LUXE!
Trust us when we say that any perfect date needs a touch of sweetness, and who better to ask than the patisserie dream team from LaManna Direct. We were in awe of their not one, but FIVE cake creations, all accessorised with hand-designed toppers from the fabulous Little Confetti Love. Not only were they #onpoint, original, and fabulous but they tasted even better than they looked (if that's at all possible)?!!! The LENZO team were all so excited to take home half a cake each, and if you put their array of cookies in consideration, you can SAFELY assume our sweet tooths were well and truly satisfied!
We also wanted to incorporate an extra personalised touch, so we just had to include this pretty custom designed stationery by Studio Silva. How cute are those little #mylover place cards - #LOVE! And to keep the party going, we added a LENZO must of Belle Balloons, which were made extra pretty with a heart garland from Ruby Rabbit!
Our models, Lucille and Mateo (both via Brazen Models) got loved up in their respective Keepsake + Gazman looks, with hair and makeup by the lovely Tahlia Jayde. We added a little extra sparkle for Lucille with the cutest 'XO' personalised jewellery pieces from Claire Aristides. The lovely couple spoilt each other with gifts from Little Boxy Co, who let you customise a #TooCute giftbox for your lover, as well as Little Market Bunch, who take the stress out of gifts by delivering floral goods around Melbourne.
And if you want to remember those extra special dates, then why not lash out and have Social Playground's newly launched 'Selfie Mirror' on hand - which we thought was WAY too perfect + on theme that we just HAD to incorporate into our shoot!
The bedroom also needed some dressing, so we got our good friends from Linen House to provide us with a range of bedware in pretty pinks and moody greys. To finish, we wanted to add some modern touches, so we enlisted the help of Lovestruck Homewares, who provided us with 'Lovers' light. We are loving their new #neon collection, watch this space for more in our upcoming EDITS.
Happy Valentine's Day, lovelies! You're sure to get lucky if you set up a scene like this one - #winkwink.
