Floral inspiration is one of my favourite things and this gorgeous shoot, on a day that is quite the celebration of all the beauty New Zealand has to offer is just the ticket for something fresh, fun and inspiring. Photographer Maree Wilkinson Photography  headed to Homewood Gardens Katikati New Zealand, with a talented team including hair & makeup artist  Kristen Donovan @ Blow Hair & Makeup, florist Milenka for Flowers , cake designer  Roz @ Cake Away and stylist  Racheal Stanway from Rozella Presents along with beautiful vintage gowns from New Bohemian and created an inspiration  shoot entitled “Bohemian Woodland Fairytale”.

Maree says, “The idea for the shoot was born after seeing the beautiful vintage gowns at New Bohemian, I’ve done many shoots for New Bohemian and have always dreamed of using them for an inspirational wedding shoot – I love it when a bride breaks tradition on their wedding day, I wanted to show how gorgeous and beautifully you can do it, I knew Kristen from Blow would do the perfect hair and makeup and Rozella Presents would bring it all together with all her amazing ideas and props.”

The first look is soft and romantic, described by Maree as “A very soft vintage lace gown and ethereal crown set against a garden setting,”

This stunning pink gown? It was owned by a Hollywood actress and makes for quite the dramatic contrast don’t you think? Maree remarks, “For this look, we used a gorgeous edgy crimson Dior like gown with an amazing real hair piece.”
