Hidden away on coastal shores of a secluded cove at Raglan beach, there is this gorgeous gem: black sand, nestled amongst rugged sand dunes, and dark stone cliff-faces. Wild surf beach spans the horizon. You wouldn't think you'd instinctively choose this as site for your bridal shoot - but the raw call of nature is in perfect contrast to the delicacy of this Bridal ensemble...
Syled soft and romantic in a vintage 1940's feel - Dooley Street Styling again show us to expect the unexpected when glamour meets nature. The floral arrangements were carefully selected for their deep and sensual hues, juxtaposed beautifully against the stone-faced greys of the rocky West-cast beach: Roses, Red Peonies, Eucalyptus and Manuka make for a wistful bouquet of old-meets new-school-romantic.
Lush lips, full lashes, and dewy glowing skin as if invigorated by the sea-spray itself - our bride achieves a sensual boho chic with tousled flowing locks.
