POSTED ON TUESDAY, 03 NOVEMBER 2015 ON THE WEDDING SCOOP

“I loved you then, I love you still. You have my heart, you always will.”

It’s the perfect quote for a couple celebrating their first anniversary and to make things even more special, this shoot took place where Adib and Mizah became husband and wife.

Today’s sophisticated picnic at dusk was planned by Emily of Paper Tiger Press. Beneath a lush canopy of flowers and foliage by Inside The Knot and dotted with fairy lights from Midnight Sparks, these images captured by Bespoke Brides are a beautiful reflection of a couple’s ongoing devotion. Mizah re-wears her wedding gown (almost unrecognisable now in its new blush form) by Caramel and Co and with romantic hair and makeup by The Make Up Room, we daresay she looks even more enchanted with her man than she did on their wedding day. Together with A Piece of SinOnce Upon A Table and XOXO & Co., we hope Adib and Mizah had as wonderful a time as we.

A word from Emily of Paper Tiger Press…


“Echoing the dusty rose colours of Mizah’s Caramel & Co dress in a sunset shoot was an easy decision to make, but a first anniversary shoot for a real-life couple demanded something even more special. Bucking the tradition of a golden-hour session, this shoot ran through dusk with the help of vendors who transitioned an elegant afternoon picnic into a romantic nighttime vision - fairy lights, sparklers and all!

With the brilliant styling help of Inside The Knot and XOXO & Co. furniture rentals, the afternoon was staged to be the perfect anniversary celebration: an elegant picnic in the very same park Mizah and Adib were married at a year ago. Taking a cue from the feminine cut and colour of Mizah’s revamped wedding dress, Lee Inn of The Make Up Room kept her makeup soft and natural. A romantic updo with tiny flowers finished her look.

Under a lush canopy of leaves, Once Upon a Table put out a spread of individual poached fruit desserts and a towering rose gold cake to mark the occasion. While Mirza and Adib fed each other gold-dusted chocolates from A Piece of Sin, Adam of Bespoke Brides captured every adorable exchange.

As early evening arrived, the scene became illuminated by a sea of candles and twinkling fairly lights courtesy of Midnight Sparks. Of course, it wouldn’t be a celebration without sparklers, so we broke out the pyrotechnics and gave form to the dazzlement of love itself - still as electric as a first kiss, after all this time.

Happy Anniversary, Mizah and Adib!”
