australia day beach shoot

Here’s some lovely images from a recent Australia Day beach shoot I worked on with Honey from Insight Creative. This is how I envisaged spending January 26th this year – a bright, sunny outdoor setting with plenty of good food, great friends and lots of toasts to this remarkable country that we are lucky enough to call home. Unfortunately it looks like we’ll be in for a wet Oz Day this year, so an indoor celebration might be in order!

I decorated the table simply with soft blue, green and mango colours – seaglass bottles filled with flowering gumtree branches, enamel plates and cotton napkins.

The delicious food in this shoot was provided by Ashlee from Do The Honours and consisted of lots of Aussie favourites with a twist: chicken and coleslaw baguettes, dill and caper-dusted prawns on skewers, butterflied BBQ lamb roast and crunchy potatoes, followed by lamington cake pops and anzac biscuits. And to wash it all down, beers and fresh mango cocktails. Absolutely delicious!
