An Easter Celebration

Posted on: April 18th, 2014 by Carolyn No Comments

What comes to mind when you think about preparing an Easter celebration with family and friends?  The main theme for our setting was a relaxed atmosphere in the garden.  Spring time colours, flowers, floppy eared bunnies, little girls in white dresses, Easter treats and Easter eggs (yes those are all chocolate eggs, candy coated chocolate all the way from South Africa) seemed a perfect combination to capture the warmth and festivities around this special time of the year (and of course the indulgence that takes place- how beautiful is the Easter cake).

These photographs depict the atmosphere of tranquility, happiness and celebration that come with the meaning of Easter.  A very big thank you to Jo Cole Photography for images  that speak a thousand words.

Many thanks to this amazing team of creative and talented people who helped me to bring my ideas to life.  Words cannot express how grateful I am to everyone for their time, professionalism and effort they contributed towards this shoot.


Where do I even begin to thank Jo from Jo Cole Photography for these images.  It was an honour to work with you!


Maude owner of A-List Interiors used her creative skills and passion  to assist me with decorating the table.

Cake and biscuits-

Ana owner of Nice Ribbon Atelier designed an Easter cake that was a focal point on the table.  I was blown away when she showed me her creation as it tied up the theme beautifully.  Her carefully crafted lace biscuits were delicious and added a fun aspect to each place setting.


A very big thank you to the talented Nada from Vintage Bloom who supplied us with the most stunning flowers and containers to complete our table!


The adorable little rabbits came all the way from Posh Paws Animal Sanctuary & Petting Farm and were definitely our VIP guests!


Holly and Grace you were an absolute delight and our shoot would not have been the same without your beautiful little faces.


So a big thank you to everyone!
