Drawing inspiration from the calming shores of the Indian Ocean, this serene beach styled shoot transports the bride and her guests to a magical and peaceful world of wedding beauty.

Captured and styled by the multi-talented Katie Grant this shoot was all about enhancing the gorgeous view, made possible by a team of oh-so savvy vendors.

Thanks to Orielle, ghost chairs were utilised to draw off the land, neither blocking the view or inhibiting the natural colours of the coast and Ivy Flowers blooms while a lovely marble cake by The Cake And I echoed the tides with its slate blues and subtle grey swirls.

It was the stunning beach bride, however, rocking gowns by The Bridal Atelier and Houghton, hair by Kayla Marshall and makeup by Kristy Ogram, that really stole show as the sun dipped below the horizon, candlelight took over and the ocean kissed the shoreline goodnight.
