The original plan for this collaboration was a quintessential ‘beach at sunset’ shoot, complete with sun flares and rich, day’s-end hues. As it turned out, the weather was uncooperative, as it so frequently is on these occasions. But we all know a little rain makes for the best wedding pics, and the sullen sky and deserted beach gave this shoot a dramatic edge that a warm sunset simply wouldn’t have managed.
Amy Oram (of bespoke accessories label, Teeki) headed the Sydney-based creative team and tells me “The conditions were actually quite magical on the day, never have I seen not a soul on Palm Beach. The fog was sitting over the hills and we could see the storm rolling in towards us over the ocean.”
Captured by James Billing, this collaboration showcases new headpieces by Teeki and jewellery by Samantha Wills. The moody setting is complimented beautifully by the boho romance of soft lace Anna Campbell gowns and gorgeous floral creations by Clementine Posy.
