The popularity of boudoir photography is on the rise… mostly being something the bride wants to keep for herself. However sometimes – as in this case – it’s a surprise for the groom. Using it as a test run for her wedding day hair & make-up photographer OLGA SURIKOVA shot it in an apple orchard in full bloom at sunset with the bride-to-be wearing lingerie from LUBOV MILOSERDOVA. I’m quite sure this would have made her groom pretty happy!!
These images from ALLISON MANNELLA taken at a recent workshop held by MICHAEL & CARINA PHOTOGRAPHY are too pretty for words!! I’m in love with these Virginia Cotton fields! We don’t have anything like that in New Zealand. With natural and organic styling by GOSSAMER as well as a gorgeous gown, this creative team have produced a beauty of a shoot. Go ahead… get pinning!

Some things are written in the stars, and when American Helene met New Zealander Keri in London, everything was aligned for a love greater than the ocean that separates their homelands. The couple chose breathtaking Opoutere for their free spirited outdoor wedding, with the scenery painting the perfect backdrop to the relaxed rustic style that reflected the couple’s personalities. Claire from WILDWOOD did a fabulou job of conveying the playfulness of the wedding. With a whole bevy of local talents from the Bay of Plenty area on board the vendor team it was always going to be amazing. ROSIES WILDFLOWER CO. created the colourful and relaxed bouquet, whilst SPONGEDROP made a gorgeous naked cake and Casey THE HEIRLOOM added her styling prowess.
“Walking down the aisle was an amazing moment. The bridal party had just arrived in Minty the VW combi and pulled up at the foot of our outdoor aisle, lined with Punga trees. Photographs show absolute delight on our faces before, during and after the ceremony.“
