This New Zealand based editorial shoot was a gorgeous collaboration between the stunning venue that is PORONUI and many talented local vendors with RISSA PHOTOGRAPHY capturing it all. Showcasing a gown from RUE DE SEINE’S Young Love collection it’s an elegant take on a more rustic woodlands style. With styling by THE HEIRLOOM and a delish looking cake from NONA’S HOMEMADE CAKES it features many of our local faves.

This beautiful love shoot by KSENIYA ANTONOVA took place in the wintery landscape of the Gulf of Finland. Married couple Julia and Aleksandr live in Moscow and travelled to St. Petersburg for the weekend and wanted to have the memories of their trip captured. The magnificent winter weather came to the party and ensured their images were pure magic amongst the breathtaking landscape.
Julia says: “I love St Petersburg very much, it is a magical city: from the architecture and nature to it’s history. If you visit it once you will want to come back for more. I’m always trying to save more memories from our trips with my beloved husband Aleksandr. We were married last summer and I still feel as like newlyweds – everything seems special and romantic. And our photoshoot did too. We are walking, smiling, trying to keep warm by hugging. It was really full of magic moments for me. And the nature in the Gulf of Finland is very beautiful. We returned to Moscow very rested and inspired, I’m glad to have this special day documented for our photo album.”
