"Raw Shores" as featured on White Magazine
When teaming up with Shonel, from Nomad Styling, you're guaranteed to create a little bit of magic! Anything this lady touches turns to gold and her attention to detail is next level - so brides, if you are reading this, take note if you are on the look out for a stylist! Enjoy the visual feast of images below captured by Jess from Brown Paper Parcel
  
 
Just to set the scene: this shoot was held in July, and before jumping out of the van I remember checking the temperature and it was a balmy 6 degrees. With rain imminent (taking cues from the dark clouds looming), we were under the pump to get this shoot done... but as we all know beauty is pain, and the pain in this situation was enduring the 6 degrees (which felt like -6!), the horizontal rain, lugging props through the sand and having moments of not being able to feel our limbs! 
Given the above description, you can imagine how much courage it took for Imogen to strip down into a beautiful One Day Bridal gown and kick through the shallow white wash. But I think you'll agree that Imogen made it look easy and this courage has shone through in these stunning images.
Remember how I said Shonel's (Nomad Styling) attention to detail is next level?! The linen flags in the above images were hand dyed, giving that perfectly imperfect touch.
Florals by yours truly! Finished with more of the hand dyed linen from Nomad Styling. The brief was to create an untamed bouquet (much like the coastline!) with a mix of white, blue and blue/grey hues. Below is a list of botanical materials included in the bouquet:
- ranunculi
- anemones
- astilbe
- seaholly
- sweet pea
- wax flower
- olive foliage
- blue gum
- andromeda
- ivy
Stationary designed by another local talent, Colour & Skulls.
  
Cake above by Sweet Bakes, table setting above and below styled Nomad Styling.
  
We battled the wind and rain while shooting the table setting, not that you could tell in these images! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to make a cheese platter and pour myself a glass of wine, these images have me salivating!
