10 months ago I had a dream to do a shoot for Bula Bride, not only to give our lovely readers some inspiration but also to bring together a bunch of talented local vendors to showcase their talents – beyond the everyday wedding.

You get to see what vendors are up to through real weddings and social media but its when you move them away from a wedding setting and let them run wild with creativity that you really see why they are good at what they do and most of all their passion for what they do. That day was truly an unforgettable experience, seeing the team { Leezett Photography, Hair N Mkup Perfectionist, HD Video Fiji } come together and work their magic to create a vision.

The day began with team flying in to Vomo Island via Pacific Island Air. The team met at Nadi International Airport to be greeted with the signature Fijian smile and jumped aboard to what they say was one of the best flights they have ever been on.

Models Tamsyn & Rochelle were effortlessly gorgeous and the backdrop and hospitality of Vomo Island Resort was spectacular. Mother nature was good to us in the first half of the day and set us a challenge in the second half, but it only made for a good adventure as we headed out to Vomo Lai lai in winds, choppy seas and rain – what you do for fashion hey!

Here is a little behind the scenes of the day that was, captured by Leezett Photography and HD Video Fiji.
