Behind the scenes: Agroturismo Atzaró

We’re not even sure early birds get up before 6am in Ibiza – on the beautiful sunrise drive to out stunning location at Agroturismo Atzaró, it felt like a totally different Ibiza. While many people were stumbling out of Cocoon at Amnesia or Aoki’s Playhouse at Pacha, our crew were unpacking make-up, beauty products, hair-styling equipment, cameras, kaftans, swimsuits and jewellery for the morning ahead…

Thankfully the hotel’s coffee machines were fired up soon enough, to give our gorgeous model Jane a little extra pep in her step before we started shooting. It’s crazy how quickly the seasons change here – last month we were worried about rainclouds but now summer is in full swing, it’s the blazing midday heat we need to avoid, hence our crack of dawn call time.

Beautiful Ibiza labels Coco Riko and Aquamarine Ibiza provided the perfect soft, silky and sheer swathes of fabrics for our stylists to get inspired, thinking in a slightly 70s direction in terms of flicked hair and blingy jewellery, followed by a jump to the 80s with a sleek ponytail. Both looks have transcended time and live on today, perfectly recreated by hairstylist Lianne of Smack Ibiza. Island designers Sara Divita and Sienna Bloom’s creations were the perfect accessories, catching the sunlight and looking stunning against Jane’s tanned skin, which was beautified by professional make-up artists Corina of Smack Ibiza.

Hitting the hotel’s main pool at around 8am, we were greeted by the sounds of the frogs in the lilypods surrounding the sparkling pool, and the baying of the sheep in the fields next door. Our photographer Natalie Beth Harris climbed in and out of reeds, on furniture and into precarious poolside positions to get all the right angles – all in a day’s work!

We wanted to capture that holiday feeling of rolling out of bed, throwing on the nearest kaftan and floating out to the hotel pool for a luxurious, lazy day filled with cocktails, massages and sunbathing. Not so sure about swimming, given that Jane was wearing false lashes – the things girls do for beauty!
