In the wetlands around the lakes of Perth, there is a thriving community of Tiger Snakes swimming amongst the shallows. A plume-like & feathery plant stands tall above the waterline, giving no hint of what lies below. This Pampas Grass is a key element of a styled shoot that Mischa Harrington is working on, and she's been charged with wading into the water to get it.
Mischa is a senior stylist at Touched By Angels, a collaborative team of contemporary stylists who’s work is a reflection of their clients and is inspired by the natural surrounds of the venue. This shoot aimed to capture the quintessential WA wedding vibe with a modern beach theme very much suited to the spectacular Hampton’s style of the venue.
Kailis Trigg is a new waterfront restaurant with 180 degree views overlooking the iconic Trigg beach. The owners are well-known West Australian seafood, marine and pearling family the Kailis’s, who’s name is synonymous with the sought after south sea pearl from Broome. Aside from producing luxurious jewellery, the family has a keen interest in top quality seafood which features prominently on their classic menu.
The design of this Kailis Trigg shoot brings together natural tones of ocean, timber & sand. It features driftwood, coral, succulents, old man’s beard, some natives, sea holly, shells and sea urchins. White bentwoods & crystal stemware are supplied by Hire Society and stationery was sourced from Paper Fusion.
But one of the key elements providing texture & colour in this shoot is the Pampas Grass featuring in two silver urns alongside the table. And it’s this that grows in the lake where Mischa went to gather stems for the shoot. We’re not suggesting that you should try this yourself, but Mischa waded into the lake wearing a pair of funky gumboots and we’re pleased to report that no snake bites were inflicted in the creation of this shoot.
Touched by Angels and photographer DeRay and Simcoe pulled together such a fantastic collaboration at this venue, that the Kailis family could not resist a few selfie pics in front of the table settings. How gorgeous is that!
