Aotearoa’s milieu of emerald greens from native West Coast fern and shrubbery mise en scène (set the scene) for Photographer Luisa Apanui’s nature immersive styled shoot. Lusia takes us on a journey of love through moss covered walls, soaring high above a tranquil clearing by Karekare Falls. Read on to be deeply inspired for your outdoor wedding…
Fern embroidery in Trish Peng’s Ruby Gown and the natural tones in the Devonche suit mermer a likening to the serene surroundings. Silhouettes of the waterfall drape delicately throughout style lines of the Ruby gown. A perfect amalgamation for our modern brides in outdoor locations. We recommend considering continuity throughout your wedding planning when choosing details in your bridal attire and styling, making connections to location for aesthetic harmony. If you are planning a ceremony indoors look to archways and architectural lines to mimic in your styling.
Wild Hearts feels a connectedness to the intimacy of the shoot. We can almost feel the misty waterfalls and fresh NZ air. A purity of celebration and growth, a feeling of sacred celebration and generational care.
Wildly Madly Deeply infused a subtle contrast of floristry with admiration of care to wild flowers after they separation from their roots. An appreciation of the beauty in nature when the leaves dry and the transformation of beauty grow stronger with age. A dried floral arrangement, again a symbolic sacramental treasure. We love that florals are a moment from weddings that can turn time-capsual with proper care- A delicate yet beautiful memory.
The floral headpiece from Wildly Madly Deeply transitions beautifully as a tie from the ceremonial waterfall scene to the beach portraits. Telling a tale of foraged adventure. The couple set off into the moody coastal beach line striding alongside the wild vast ocean. A meeting of Nz’s Moana and land, a sacred landscape. The bride wearing Trish Peng’s Skyla Gown and over skirt. Again an intentional silhouette reminiscent of wispy waves, sparkling sea foam and coastal shrubbery. Paired with a Amelie George Bridal pearl earring.The couple share an exchange of warmth and love in intimate moments captured by Lambert Laluz and Luisa Apanui.
