A Wintery Boho-Inspired Beach Elopement in Kent, Captured by Masha UnwerthThis beautiful elopement mini shoot was captured on a Winter's day on the beach of Botany Bay in Kent; what a fantastic location this would also be for an engagement shoot. With Boho vibes, black accents, wild florals and a smoky-eyed bride, this shoot was an instant hit with me, and I'm sure it will be with you, too!

The inspiration was captured by talented photographer Masha Unwerth, whose work I have had the pleasure of featuring previously, and I will let her take you through the inspiration behind the shoot...

Living in Kent, the location Becky has thought of immediately was the famous Botany Bay, which is the perfect backdrop for the mood that thrives by the coast during winter and undoubtedly leave you with an array of beautiful emotion and ultimately a very grand reward. With this in mind, a group of talented women gathered together to exercise the creative juices and achieve something rather great. As a photographer I am always lean for creating new inspiring images, I love the coastal tone and sea vibes, and despite the day winter cold, the team pushed through for what turned out to be one fabulous January shoot!

The eyes I opted for was a very cool-toned matte smokey eye whilst keeping the lips simple nude by using a soft grape sheer lipstick. The main focus for me was to be kept on the eyes for the edgy, editorial bridal look."

Nadia Webber, our hairstylist created ripple effect waves to reflect the mood of the beach and location as well as keeping casually and natural-looking hair.

Aidan, the groom wore black jeans, a white shirt and black jacket for a formal yet modern look with a touch of casual. This real couple was the perfect fit for the shoot and radiate such happiness and love for each other.

Protea was also brought in for texture and bohemian chic. All were designed by Liz Hammocks in the style to evoke a timeless boho feeling.
