This styled shoot was inspired by the beautiful natural surroundings the South Island of New Zealand has to offer. We got to work with an amazing team of extremely talented vendors and I’m so happy I got to realise my vision of an autumn inspired wedding shoot. It was captured by Tegan Johnson Photography and is nothing short of stunning.
The scenery of Tai Tapu, Canterbury, was the perfect location for this shoot with its amazing view and reflected the golden autumn light perfectly. The leaves were just starting to change to a colourful collage of the golds and the fading greens, and crisp cool air was rolling in. With all of this in mind, we thought, why not accent this time of year with our own flare.
Together with Aromaunga Flowers, a very talented florist, we created a wonderful table setting with different beautiful pink tones, mixed with a lot of green elements. An old mossy wooden table peppered with costly arranged copper and brass accents and comfortable blankets and cushions around it, formed an exciting contrast to the location where it became a fascinating eye-catcher.
The hand made, vintage beaded gowns from Louise Anderson Bridal Design along with the boho inspired elements and colourful floral pieces complemented the scenery with its beautiful colours and sunlight. This shoot is a perfect example of how to design an Autumn wedding and let nature be the statement piece at your wedding while using gorgeous details, such as your dress style and floral design to complement your overall wedding style and look.
I hope you like it as much as I do!
