What do you get when you mix a lavish setting, delicious sweet treats, champagne and your best girlfriends? A getting-ready party that’s almost as good as the wedding itself!

Taya Paparone of Partaya Events explains the idea behind this luxurious shoot captured by We Are All Stardust. “This is a shoot focused on the sacred hours before a wedding ceremony in which a bride and her two best girlfriends prepare for the day with a series of rituals – indulging in treats, signature cocktails and tea, the giving and receiving of gifts, pampering, preparing and reminiscing. We sought to capture the female bond and the very special camaraderie that happens within a bridal party during these moments of eating, drinking, dressing, laughing and calming the nerves.”

The bride and her besties wear luxurious undergarments, robes and sleepwear by Jonte Designs and Hunter Rose as they indulge in sweets by Savour the Date and ice pops by Delish Ice. Edible blooms from Wholeflowers are a clever decorative touch and look much too pretty to eat!

Lavish, velvety floral crowns and bouquets by Signature Floral Design are complemented by bold makeup by Makeup by Meg & Em and glamorous hairstyling by Casey’s Curls.

And when it’s time to go and meet her groom, the bride takes the glam up another notch, slipping into a stunning 70’s-inspired Rue de Seine gown with angled sleeves and a keyhole back from Through the White Door.
