Against the wild black sand of Piha, Francie from Darling I Do created a gorgeous elopement setting capturing the true intimacy and raw passion that a small wedding or elopement brings. Challenging traditional expectations, this contemporary setting celebrates a modern couple fuelled by wild adventures and intimate moments.
All elements of the shoot are contrasting and cultivated to perfection. A seasoned, autumnal colour palette atop forest greens balanced the moody surrounds of Piha Beach. Light touches of femme were found in the crepe-pink accents and soft florals that adorned heavy duty greenery.
