When the talented Reid from WHEN HE FOUND HER got in touch to say he was going to be visiting New Zealand late last year, despite a bit of a crazy schedule I knew I had to try and find the time to pull a shoot together with him and make the most of having his incredible talent in the area. So with a gorgeous custom GOSSAMER WEDDING GOWN in tow, we ventured out to Bethells Beach on Auckland's West Coast to create magic one summers evening. Actually one very windy summers evening as you can see here!

A soft and natural make-up look by NATALIE DENT (for MAC make-up) was in keeping with the relaxed beach vibe. 

We love the use of berries in this wild bouquet by one of our favourite florists LEAF & HONEY!
