This is a wedding for the day-dreamers, beach lovers, sun chasers, star gazers, wanderers and bohemian believers. Let your hair down, adorn yourself with feathers and crystals and let love rule.
This shoot goes down as one of our all time favourites. We were blessed with a paradise day on Sydney's Northern Beaches, warm sun and a cool breeze. The gorgeous models looked every bit at home on the sand, while our bride adorned with rings and bespoke hairpieces from Teeki was definitely the Indie princess we envisaged. We styled without limits - adding that extra ring, bangle or feather, teasing out hair and braiding it up again as each of the beach wedding dresses found its own unique place in the 'Indian Summer'.... LOVE!!
Beach wedding dresses are marked by the same flow and carefree spirit. These beach wedding dresses cast aside rigid fabrics and layers upon layers in favour of simplicity and natural curves. Chiffon, lace and beads are the flavour of the day and these beach wedding dresses are made to rumple in the sand.
