There can't be many people out there who aren't enchanted by the charms of France. The culture, the countryside, the food; it's easy to get swept up and be completely enamoured with it. A trio of creatives led by photographer LYNETTE BOYLE ventured to Provence and challenged themselves to trust their instincts and put together this shoot very organically. With styling by KAELLA LYNN EVENTS and florals by AMANDA VIDMAR DESIGN the result was a natural fusion of romance and sophistication at VILLA AURENJO.

"Although we left much up to chance, we saw this as part of the fun. Growth isn't born out of comfort and we collectively love to push ourselves in our work. It also ensured our design would be reflective of the Provence area and season - truly authentic, yet still reflective of our style. Upon arrival, we had half a day to source the rest of the pieces we needed to complete the design. The morning was spent at a local farmers market where we purchased local hellebores, mushrooms and wine for our table. Next was a walk around the town of Orange to forage for foliage for Amanda's floral arrangements. The furniture was all sourced from the Villa, and desserts from the local patisserie. Our French couple were local and accepting of our request a couple hours before we were set to begin."
