Polynesian Wedding

Traditional Polynesian Wedding Styled Shoot with a Modern Twist

Tropical, luxurious, and a fresh spin on tradition were the perfect ingredients combined to make the recipe resulting in this romantic Polynesian styled shoot.

On a private property in the Gold Coast of Australia, real-life couple Josh and Tiara posed effortlessly throughout the editorial. The shoot even allowed Josh to pay tribute to his Polynesian heritage; adding much to the authenticity. Furthermore “Lei Luna Leis, was an amazing addition to the team,” mentioned Emily of Poppy and Sage. “Her Hawaiian background certainly gifted a real-life aspect to the shoot — it was so important to the entire team that any heritage incorporated be acknowledged appropriately — florals that would appear in traditional ceremonies.”

The florals certainly stood out with their bright citrus colors bringing a fresh and vibrant flair in addition to the attraction of the big leaves. Engraved coconuts, a statement coconut wedding cake, and chocolate favors all added such sweetness, while tribal touches rounded out the details seamlessly in subtleness; both in the model bride’s gown and through henna artistry. “Sharmeen Thomas created the white henna artistry for our bridal muse; this weaved an elegant tribal element into the overall look,” stated Emily.

“As with every collaboration, the creation and enjoyment is a full team effort,” continued the photography. And lucky for us, we get to admire the artistic creativity of each and every talented vendor that made this magic happen!
