“He was earthly; she was aerial. He was made of clay and iron; she was made of fire and dreaming.” – Graham Joyce
A dark and stormy evening sets the scene for an opulent winter celebration. With rain tapping against the windows, the golden glow of the fire illuminates the intimate room. Muted winter greens are paired with shimmering golds and deep, berry tones to create an atmosphere of romance and decadence.
A luxurious winter shoot set within the Stables Matakana, styled and captured by Christina Schmidt of Wild Spirit Photography. Draped in the golden Rio gown by Boho Bridal Design, our ethereal beauty, Chrystal Ashford basks in the warm tones and cosy surrounds. She holds a bouquet of wild peachy pink florals accented with muted greenery. Her hair by Robyn Munro is loose and relaxed and makeup by Ruth Baron emphasises her natural beauty. Gold jewellery by Zoe & Morgan and celestial shoes by Katya Maker provide enchanting adornment. Tables are set with romantic details and luxurious accents for a cosy, intimate dinner. Stationery by Paper Rose is reminiscent of a bygone era and a decadent cheesecake by Relish and Rollick, the perfect evening indulgence.
