Styled Shoot


In the heart of the ‘Garden City’ of Christchurch our creative team were inspired by the chic simplicity of our newest edition to the Wild Hearts family and new home to Wild Hearts Christchurch in September – Ilex at the Botanic Gardens.  

Soft celestial candlelit styling surrounded by organic linens, stationery, luxe glassware and golden streams of sunlight, which created a romantic silhouette that complemented the contemporary architectural lines of the modern Ilex walls. A soft mix of textures and contrast lighting to create a dreamy art inspired tablescape captured perfectly by Christchurch photographer Sophie Isabella

Across the pathway our lovers celebrated with champagne and shared stolen moments in the iconic glasshouse building of Cuningham House at the Botanic Gardens. Michaelee in a playful and incredibly romantic Gown and Two Piece Set by Brooke Tyson Ritual was a symphony of poetic femininity and Daniel looking dapper in his Barkers suit with an almost Parisian romance.  

Join us as we explore our new modern romantic muse in Christchurch. And see it all in person on September 7th for our Wild Hearts Christchurch Wedding Fair. Get your tickets here.
