Tropical Kitsch Styled Shoot

As creatives we sometimes have to push ourselves out of our comfort zones & do something completely different in order to grow & learn. Last spring's styled shoot was pretty much this for the majority of vendors.....& we made it happen! 

My aim was to create a tropical, kitsch look that was modern, fresh & colourful. Frida Kahlo meets Carmen Miranda....big, bold & beautiful.
This stunning shoot not only helps us as wedding vendors to better ourselves & keep things fresh, but it also helps those planning a wedding to see what is possible. Don't be afraid to do something different!

What is also very exciting is that this styled shoot is now being featured in the current issue of Bride & Groom Magazine. Yet again, we are representing Taranaki & the amazing talent within. Nobody puts Taranaki in the corner.
