Wild Oceanscapes

“Swim in the ocean, live in the sea. Drink the wild air” – Emerson 

Mid-winter dreaming of long summer days and escaping to tropical destinations- soft sand beneath bare toes, salty windswept hair and wild coastal adventures.
New Zealand has endless options for beautiful locations to travel to, not just for a dreamy elopement but also for your honeymoon.

This styled shoot was located in such a place- a wild beachside location at Breakers Bay in Abel Tasman.  A destination full of hidden lagoons, rocky shores and wild forest walks. Styled by our Wild Hearts director Samantha – who has spent so many dreamy summers exploring the shores of the Tasman Bays.

Alongside Samantha was a talented team of creatives bringing all of the summer beauty and style into creating this stunning set of images. Captured by photographer Sarah Ryland, it features some amazing resort style pieces from our fave designers and has us dreaming of the summer months to come…

    Beks AndersonChaos & Harmony

    Over 10 years ago, Chaos & Harmony’s Creative Director and Founder, Beks Anderson and her husband sold everything they owned and moved to Italy so Beks could learn to design shoes at the Instituo Europeo di Design in Rome. She was taught by tutors who’d worked at Valentino and Fendi, among others, and learned how to infuse her lifelong love of texture, materials and leathers into comfortable, high-quality, hand-made shoes.

    Twelve months later they returned to Mount Maunganui and created Chaos & Harmony - a market-leading, boutique shoe company. The name Chaos & Harmony reflects our love of textures to create depth – it brings about a curious contradiction. It also subtly sums up a woman’s world!
