Moody Winter Elopement Inspiration at Coronet Mountain

October 29, 2016 | juliette

Winter is coming, and this modern medieval shoot from White Ash Photography has us day-dreaming of making a romantic escape to Coronet Mountain. The dark tones used in the florals and table settings set an appropriately moody vibe worthy of the stunning natural setting. But the true show-stopper here is the black gown from Leanne Marshall. Its non-traditional elegance upped the romance factor to 10 and took our breath away when contrasted against the snowy backdrop. From the photographer: The inspo […]

Relaxed Waterfront New Zealand Wedding at the Longbeach Estate

October 23, 2016 | gabby

Hosting their wedding on the groom’s family farm, Rachel and James’s Longbeach Estate wedding was the ultimate in rustic boho!
