Boho New Zealand Beach Wedding Inspiration

January 24, 2020 | brooke

Samantha Donaldson Photography and The Event Refinery planned this modern bohemian New Zealand beach wedding inspiration shoot with the free-spirited couple in mind. Samantha’s goal was to show that following tradition doesn’t always have to be the plan when it comes to tying the knot. With warm, natural tones and stylish elements—like the bride’s Heartbeat Bridal hat and flow-y Samantha Stokes gown—we love how effortless this day seems. If you’ve been searching for a dreamy beach-side to say your “I do’s” this shoot will surely give you a jolt of creativity and inspiration!

  2. Hello, Do you know where the bride got that lace coverup that she has over her wedding dress? Is it part of the wedding dress? Thank you!
