A romantic elopement styled shoot, steeped in beauty, culture, and elegance, on the coast of Paihia, in New Zealand’s North Island.
Intimate moments along native forest pathways, and carved wooden rooftops. Trickling light creating ethereal dream spaces of romance fused with cultural modernity. Refined Eli Gown by Lee Bee Bridal, gilded in stardust, tulle dancing in the wild ocean winds.
Beautifully captured by Max from Moments & Waves.
“We wanted to reflect the Bay of Islands in a new light, reflecting a hint of culture, but blending it with a striking timeless & elegant front. Inspired by this wedding destination, whilst also reminding our lovers that their love stories don’t have to be suppressed, better yet they can be praised & acknowledged for refining back what their love means to them.”
