Brya and Rupert are effortless trendsetters. Michael discovered this beautiful pair upon photographing
their friends wedding, of which they were in the bridal party. The minute I saw Brya, I loved her hair.
Warm and sassy, two words that describe her perfectly. Inviting a minimalist and organic approach,
Michael and I asked a team of vendors to give it all and hold one thing back. The richness of Brya’s hair
colour is seen in the florals, ceramics and the stunning sunset beyond Waipatiki Beach of Hawke’s Bay.
We wanted the beauty of an iconic Hawke’s Bay beach to speak for itself. Ghost chairs take nothing away
from their environment and give everything back, they were iconic to this shoot. The styling of the table
was minimal and fit into its environment with florals that had an earthy focus. Modern ceramics were the
perfect complement to warm linens and beautiful calligraphy by Rebecca of Panoply Studio. The dress by
Sally Eagle was ethereal and simple, the same echoed in flawless hair and makeup by Candice Dear and
Abby Schofield respectively. But love always wins, and after all the detail shots, we saw Michael capture
love in its simplest and most organic form. With the sun setting beyond the sea, as cliche as it may have
been, I know it reminded us all exactly why we do what we do.
