Grounded by forest greens and immersed in the understated beauty of nature, this week’s styled elopement shoot takes us to the Hunua Ranges. Adventuring through the whispering trees and amongst the slow moving shadows comes a boho spirit and a freedom of the outdoors. The bride, barefoot on the forest floor, comfortable in the unknown that is left to nature; two wild souls moving with the rawness of their love and surroundings.
One Little Wagon, the gorgeous vintage caravan bar, adds a shabby chic touch of Glastonbury glam under the lightly swaying pines. Dried florals, hides, candles, crystal glassware and soft linens surround the bar to incorporate a soft touch to the roaming festivities. Muted coral and cream hues reflect the relaxed but fittingly styled vibe and transform the pine needle carpet.
