A Styled Shoot Beating in the Heart of the City
By Raashka Mannie
Inspired by the historic and iconic Ponsonby Post Office Building, this styled shoot drew its muse from its location: nestled within the heart of the city, this venue is rich with atmosphere, vibrance and charisma. Augustus Bistro endeavoured to find vendors that would reflect this ambience of refined charm with a touch of tradition, combining the very best of quiet glamour and understated elegance. Augustus Bistro prides itself on being an oasis within the city, the perfect venue from which to be at the very centre of it all whilst remaining above the hustle and bustle of the surrounding city. For this styled shoot, their tasteful garden room and dining areas were adorned with blossoming indoor plants, the rich green standing out amongst simple white and brick, whilst baskets suspended with greenery and life rested above indulgent fabrics. They created the perfect backdrop for the celebration of love, opting for a soft-focus on romance and life, framing the setting with simple hints of gold and the comfort of the city. This styled shoot was made possible by talented and creative vendors such as Vinka Designs, Blush Flowers and Styling, and Zahn. They worked together to bring together the best of the best when it comes to Augustus Bistro, representing the flavour of love through their dedication and passion.
