INSPIRATION - Runaways in May: A Romantic Elopement Styled Shoot, Captured by Masha Unwerth in Windsor's Great Park

26th June 2019


Elopements are becoming more poular - they not only reduce expense, but also envioronmental impact at the same time. I'm a big fan - so I was delighted when photographer, Masha Unwerth, sent me this beautiful inspiration shoot, filled with elegant details.

The colours we chose were inspired by light and to create a special dreamy atmosphere; so I had the vision of soft pastel shades to compliment the intimate affair.

Our hair stylist, Jennifer Hawkins created a wavy hair style with braids that framed and accentuated our model’s face features perfectly.

Keeping with the elopement theme, we decided to forgo the usual larger table for an intimate set up for two.
