Love is in the Air: a day on set

Love is in the Air: a day on set

Have you ever been in love? (Dresses count). In this campaign we flirt with the romance of eras past to tell the most fashionable modern-day love story.

31 January 2018

The drama of hot air balloons and vintage cars symbolise the grand adventure that is falling in love, not to be outshone by one of Victoria’s most popular wedding venues, the beautiful Zonzo Estate.

 

The night before...

 

5:00pm

The crew arrived at Yering Gorge cottages.

6:00pm - 10pm
 

Finishing touches were being made to each outfit’s styling, along with hair and makeup looks.

The day of...

If you’ve ever experienced the pleasure and thrill of a hot air balloon ride, you’ll be familiar with a rather unfriendly wakeup call. And so begins a day on set…

3:00am

Rudely, our alarms went off and we were in full swing (post caffeine, of course.) After two hours of hair and makeup sorcery by the fabulous Bernadette Fisers we were ready to begin shooting.

 

Got a hot date?

Here are our Bernadette’s top tips for a kiss-proof red lip:

1. Fill in your lips first with a red lip liner, colouring them in totally. This will increase longevity

2. Blot your lips several times and reapply, this will get the colour to sink into your lips and cause a stain

3. Powder your lips lightly before applying a matte lipstick

5:30am

Hair still in rollers we had arrived at our shoot location, Zonzo Estate set in the beautiful Yarra Valley.

5:45am

Sunrise and we had taken our first shot of the day!

6:00am

blowflies. They wanted to be part of the photoshoot, too!

7:00am

Our handsome male model arrived, feeling very pleased that he didn’t have to be up at 3am.

8:00am

Humidity was at its peak, so every few minutes hair and makeup touch ups were needed.

9:00am

Lift off! The hot air balloon took off on its 10 metre high journey.

10:00am

Lunch time! (It made sense on the day, ok…)

12:00pm

Another of our models came bouncing down the road. The fabulously retro mint green FJ Holden Ute, that is.

1:00pm - 3:00pm

Pose! Snap! Pose! Snap! Pose! Snap!

3:15pm

The last coffee run for the day.

4:00pm

Finito! We took our last shots of the day and were ready to head home. After celebratory champagne that is, after all we were at a winery…

Special thanks to Zonzo & Global Ballooning for to tell our fashionable love story.
