Inspired by the below CS Lewis poem, this stunning moody shoot by NOI TRAN features stunning florals in the most beautiful colour palette by HOLLY BRYAN DESIGN. Noi explains: "I was compelled to put together a shoot that showcased the beauty in our trials, our pain and suffering. Life lessons are meant to refine you when you persevere and not give up. Perdure-to continue to exist, to last, to remain. Our bouquet was tied with a Marsala and gold two-toned iridescent ribbon from Ribbon Sweets. In the bouquet touches of Scabiosa helped to draw focus on the black lace dress. The river symbolizes our moments when we feel like we're drowning. But we get up, and we keep going.

"The most beautiful people are those who have known defeat, 
known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. 
These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, 
and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, 
gentleness, and a deep loving concern.  
Beautiful people do not just happen."
