Luxe in Lace | Bridal boudoir shoot with We Are Wildwood
“Too much of a good thing can be wonderful” ~ Mae West.
And these stunning images by Claire from New Zealand based We Are Wildwood are all sorts of wonderful!
I was so excited when the lovely Lindsay from UK’s Flyaway Bride (a must read blog filled with so much destination wedding inspiration!) was in touch with me late last year about a styled shoot she was organising over in the North Island of New Zealand… Tauranga to be precise!
With 5 days notice, I ran straight to the post office to mail off some pretty veils for the shoot. While Australia and New Zealand are close neighbours, unfortunately the postal fairies were unable to deliver the veils in time for the shoot. Oh dear, my heart sank when I found out! After an attempted delivery and a sleepless night for me, I received the loveliest email from Lindsay letting me know that the veils missed the shoot and they arrived the following day. I was overcome with disappointment and felt terrible that I had let everyone down. But I read on, and the email went on to say that Claire from We Are Wildwood loved the veils so much that she was keen to do another shoot the following week! I went from low to high in less than 10 seconds. I couldn’t believe it. It felt like Christmas, Easter and my birthday, all in one day.
The gorgeous images below are from the second shoot organised by Lindsay and they were captured so expertly by Claire. This is part one of the images… there were so many beautiful images, I just had to split them into two gorgeous posts! A great problem to have right? Stay tuned for the second part… it’s coming very soon!
I must also give credit to the other talented vendors who contributed to these exquisite images:
