Coromandel Photographer Emma Steel and a team of talented local wedding professionals got together to bring you this dreamy, hipster styled Elopement shoot. Set atop of Hahei pa, overlooking the stunning views of Hahei beach and the stormy ocean, really set the scene for this beautiful elopement...
Some days it's easy to just get washed away with the romance of it all.. Well frankly, from looking at this recent shoot from Local up-and-coming photographer Emma Steel - it's not hard to do... This wistful and fanciful elopement shoot takes us far far away from the hustle and the bustle of city life, to a place where 'wifi' is a dirty four letter word; The transcendence and tranquility of the Hahei coastline is unlike any other midday escape we've seen in a long time... Oh to have that sand between you toes right now? Emma's deep colours and rich tones take us to the glowing afternoon sun, and you can nearly feel the warmth on your skin if you only stop looking long enough to close your eyes.
Romantic notions of bygone era's are revived in the intricate headpiece and styling by Rouge Beauty. We are loving the fanciful updo, pink cheek and the dewy complexion - so at home on the beach with the wind in her hair. The dress is supplied by Auckland boutique, The Haven Bridal Boutique and the dress is a backless lace stunner called 'Genevieve' by designer Sally Eagle Bridal. The detailing in the lace is insane; could it be any better? (Answer: No.) We see a flowing silhouette be picked up by the wind, and what is clearly a well-cut design be carried away by the spring breeze - wearing that dress would feel sensational. As the evening starts to chill, wrap up with a cosy throw and really rock that boho look.
The flowers are King Proteas (native to south Africa), Gumtown flowers grow a handful of varieties. The suit has come from Rembrandt Suits; where we see a very classic and simply pairing of an open-neck shirt and simple grey vest - plus a set of suspenders doing their thing in classic gentleman style. He's a well dressed, laid-back Groom who knows how good he's got it... Clearly, because that smile is the all-day version.
So day-dream on lovebirds, and enjoy the visual delight that only summer-sun and vintage lace can bring...
