Ocean pollution and its consequences break our hearts so we came up with this style shoot project, “Until Eternity”, a show case of a circular economy inspired high-end wedding that maximises usage of natural and local material and produces zero waste.
The highlight of this shoot is bamboo arch decorated lightly with reusable fabric and latex flowers and dry pampas. Bamboo known as very sustainable crops as they require minimal water, no fertiliser, very fast growing and generating very low carbon foot print. Our ribbon and table runners are made from textile waste, over stocked fabric from garment factories, brought to us by moreloop.ws. Other material such as dry pampas, rattan chair set and ceramic vases are reusable product of Thailand.
Earlier this year, Adobe & Pantone’s announced 3 colors as part of “Glowing Glowing, Gone” campagne that represent the climate crisis (before the coral died, they glow in purple, yellow or blue). We incorporate the purple in this shoot and use it as one of the his & her cocktails called “Ocean Glow” prepared by the venue, TwinpalmsMontAzure. (Another cocktail in this shoot called Andaman coral representing dead coral.)
Featured in this shoot are exquisite Art Deco-inspired jewels by CHAVANA, a Thai jeweller with over one hundred years of history who preserve aged old technique of high jewelry making. The pieces are from their latest Oeuf d’enchantement collection which features diamond drop earrings and are accompanied with a stunning black onyx ring. The black represent (fear of the crisis), elegance and sophistication. Complimenting shade of black with a gorgeous sparkly grey gown from Aunchalee Boutique in Bangkok and a beautiful light grey suit from His & Her in Phuket town. Our costume and model’s hair and make up carefully styled by Neil Donkin, a Phuket based Make up artist and hair stylist, who aimed for “Beach Boho Lux” vibe.
Twinpalms MontAzure was a perfect venue for this shoot as they practice sustainable operations throughout the resort from bathroom amenities to food and beverage containers. Plastic bottles or plastic straws are eliminated completely throughout the venue. Environmental concern also extends to local tourist attractions, and they have an anti-animal exploitation policy in place, so guests are only encouraged to visit sustainable sanctuaries where wildlife is not used for selfies, rides or entertainment. The resort has also received the award for Best Mixed-Use Development and for Sustainable Development at the Thailand Property Awards 2017.
