Sea salt breeze, warm sand beneath bare feet, cool crisp sea, golden summer sun........
What could be more wonderful than celebrating your love and union with your truest love than doing so on a beautiful beach? These beautiful images from a styled shoot I did with Georgina Piper are some of my absolute favourites. The understated and graceful beauty of Anna, wearing the dress I designed and named after her, against the wonderful horizon make my heart sing.
Anna + Otti
"My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep;
The more I give to thee,
The more I have,
For both are infinite."
William Shakespeare, Romeo & Juliet
The Anna dress was inspired by a vintage late 1930's dress I found in a local vintage shop. I updated the design and had Anna's ethereal beauty in mind when I made this version in silk georgette.
"Trust your heart
if the seas catch fire,
live by love,
though the stars
A simple and fresh bouquet tied with twine and simple silver accessories suit the free spirited vibe of this seaside wedding.
"Dance with the waves,
Move with the sea,
Let the rhythm of the water
set your soul free."
Christy Ann Martine
Marrying and rock pooling- you should never be so precious or uncomfortable in your dress that you can't have fun!
When you have such a beautiful backdrop provided by Mother Nature, you don't need gimmicky props of any sort. Weddings that take place in the beautiful wild places are always the most romantic and memorable.
As the evening light fades to dusk, walk off into the remaining light with your love and dance beneath the moon and stars....
