Issue 78

Thank goodness the weather gods turned it on for the Bride & Groom fashion team, because we were heading to the rooftop terrace of Rydges Hotel! Overlooking the beautiful city and waterfront of Auckland, it was the perfect location for our modern and romantic photo shoot - complete with the latest gowns, stylish suits, and a model couple that were actually engaged!! So sweet :)

See the beautiful images from this fashion shoot in issue 78 of Bride & Groom magazine, on sale now.

As the Bride & Groom fashion team drove towards Mount Ruapehu the mountain wasn't anywhere to be seen as it was hidden beneath the thick low-lying fog. We started off shooting inside the beautiful ballroom of The Chateau for our Gatsby-inspired spread where the lovely staff were really accommodating. Then we were very lucky on the last day, the skies were clear blue so we headed up the slopes and got some beautiful shots with snow and volcanic rock as the backdrop. Our stunning model was also a dream to work with and looked fabulous in all of the gowns!

Thanks to The Chateau Tongariro

Vanuatu: Behind the Scenes – issue 73
The out-of-this-world-amazing fashion spreads in our latest issue were shot in the tropical paradise of Vanuatu.

The team of Lesley, Rosie, Nikki and Esther were lucky enough to spend a week at The Havannah
– a stunning five-star resort with wonderful staff, luxurious rooms, and a romantic setting.

Laden with makeup, gowns and photography equipment, the intrepid travellers (ha!) set off on a small catamaran to a special location recommended to them by The Havannah’s manager. Lelepa Island was a breath-taking volcanic island, unspoiled by the Survivor Vanuatu cast and crew who were based there in 2004…

The girls were also lucky enough to see a pod of beautiful dolphins
on their way back to The Havannah…

In between a little swimming and a lot of fresh island fare,
the girls took the most beautiful shots on the white sand beach,
infinity-edge pool and jetty over crystal clear water –
a tough job but somebody has to do it!
