Spring Creekside Bridal Shoot

I must admit I’m a bit of a sucker for shoots on rivers or creeks… it takes me back to my childhood and teenage years, memories of camping and exploring. This shoot from CHRISTINE PIENAAR strips it all back and keeps it beautifully simple. I’m especially digging that tulle skirt from BEAUTULLEFUL INC.. paired with the sweet braided hair by SUZANNA CHUN BEAUTY.

Christine tells us, “As spring started to arrive on the west coast of Vancouver and the crystal clear waters started to flow down from the mountains this beautiful creekside scenery created the inspiration for this boho bridal shoot. The light tulle skirt paired with a soft high neck silk blouse brought together an effortless organic boho bridal look. With her hair loosely braided to the side and stands framing her face, the perfect touch of elegance was added with a delicate pearl hair piece wrapped around her hair. The afternoon light was still bright behind the trees illuminating this secret spot by the creek surrounded by the moss covered trees. As the water ran down between the rocks there was nothing more compelling than closing your eyes and breathing in all the beauty.

La Jolla Cove Anniversary session

We’re rather smitten with coloured wedding gowns and this pale blue one from CLAIRE LA FAYE is the perfect choice for a seaside celebration. In this case an anniversary shoot by IMAGE CLAIRITY that took place in La Jolla Cove, San Diego on a rare rainy day – which worked perfectly in their favour.

Claire tells us; “From Jennifer and Tony met in San Diego and lived in multiple cities, always on the ocean, before they were married last May in Jennifer’s small hometown in rural Missouri. Jennifer is a cheerleader for the San Diego Chargers as well as an attorney, and Tony sells real estate in San Diego, so we knew that after their first year of marriage, we needed to create an anniversary shoot that tells their love story on the ocean.

With the sea as our inspiration, we designed the rest of the shoot, choosing to photograph in La Jolla Cove, with florals inspired by the colors of the ocean and a light blue gown by Claire La Faye.

Portuguese wedding in an ancient Monastery

I was thrilled to feature this stunning Portuguese wedding by my friends at BRANCOPRATA in the current issue of MAGNOLIA ROUGE MAGAZINE. This gorgeous duo – Elsa & Rui – are photographers themselves and having their friends Sofia & André capture their celebration made the day all the more special. How incredible is their venue? 

They say home is where the heart is, and that couldn’t be more true for wedding photographers Elsa and Rui. It was in their new home, when Elsa was pregnant with their beautiful daughter, Beatriz, that Rui proposed by painting ‘I will love you always! Will you marry me?’ on one of the walls. Home was part of their wedding day too – the couple created a cosy environment with comfy furnishings, plush fabrics, and a bright, colourful palette, so guests felt as if they were at a relaxed dinner with friends. It’s no wonder they’re still talking about it! And it’s no wonder that today pieces of Elsa and Rui’s wedding stationery still adorn their walls, bringing the story full circle, and two hearts home.

Sofia & André from BRANCOPRATA had this to say, “To be part of Elsa and Rui’s wedding day was truly special! They are very dear to our hearts, we have all been friends for quite some time now and when they asked us to help them with their big day, we felt honoured and even a bit surprised! To be there not as wedding vendors but as their friends and share such a special time in their lives was really important to us, plus when they told us what kind of wedding they wanted, we knew we were in for a treat! We had an amazing time and we will never forget the good times that we all spent on the dance floor, it was crazy!
