The talent within the Fiji Wedding Industry is nothing short but amazing and since starting the blog I have wanted the opportunity to showcase their talents away from everyday weddings.
Fiji provides a magical backdrop and playground perfect for romance. While couples are in Fiji during the time of their Fiji Wedding, they seek additional opportunities to work with their photographers, be it an engagement session, boudoir shoot or underwater shoot. Collaborating with Leezett Birch of Leezett Photography I wanted to explore this a little further with a romantic bridal boudoir shoot, outside the bedroom and into the real Fiji.
Vomo Island Resort and neighboring Island Vomo Lai Lai were the perfect setting. Vomo being the Island for romance and its volcanic rocks provided an interesting contrast to the soft romantic feel to the shoot.
Candice Lee bridal separates help make the easy transition from wedding glam to boudoir chic. Adorned with Shut the Front Door Headpieces and Forever Soles Anklets & Arm Jewels and gorgeous ‘just rolled out of bed’ hair and natural makeup by Hair N Mkp Perfectionist complete the look. The introduction of a lush greenery bouquet adds an element of grand and showcases the use of tropical elements commonly found in Fiji.
Keep an eye out for Part Two & Three, and for Bula Bride Fiji Wedding Magazine launching at the end of the year with more from the shoot.
