Photographer Amy Kate had an idea to create a magical, mythical world exploding with wedding day inspiration. With that in mind, she rounded up some of New Zealand’s best vendors (Two Foxes Styling, Truly and Madly and Muck to name only a few) to create a unique forest setting.
“I’ve always had a soft spot for classical music and storytelling and I had always wanted to create something a little more otherworldly. A bridal shoot that is a bit more dark, mysterious and beautiful in its own unique way”, says Amy who had Hera Bridal create a one-of-a-kind gown to suit their theme.
Crinkle cut hair by Inspired Hair, makeup by Shona Stevenson, a hand painted cake by Sweet Deer and an abundance of re-purposed natural elements also set this shoot apart (not to mention the name tags and menus by Little Paper Store and signage by The Confetti Collection) – creating a romantic and mysterious atmosphere.
“The amazing vendors brought more to this shoot than I could have dreamed. Bringing this magical mythical world to life right before my eyes. It really was a shoot built upon trust and creative freedom.”
