On Location - Wonderful Wanaka
When we were approached by Wanaka Tourism to be part of a shoot we jumped at the chance, Who wouldn’t? Stunning location, amazing and talented suppliers to work with, and I can’t leave out the models who spent the day very patiently being bossed around to get the perfect look.
The setting at Rippon Vineyard created the perfect look for the theme that Wanaka Tourism wanted, Rippon overlooks Lake Wanaka and the rustic yet opulent hall provided the ideal stage for the glamourous old world theme. I was also lucky enough to sample some of their gorgeous wine at lunch!
With the help of our fantastic consultant Liz from Takapuna we selected the Bonny 8309 and a long 2 tier veil for Miriam to wear. This gown is the perfect choice for Miriam’s shape as it highlights her gorgeous natural curves and provides structure through the waist helping to accentuate her waist. Frankie, our wee flowergirl, wore the D1217 flowergirl dress.
The Bonny 8309 features exquisite beaded lace motifs adorning tulle atop allover lace adding richness and depth. An exquisite beaded and rhinestone band wraps around the natural waist, and is finished with a lace-up corset back.
