Bohemian beauty: bridal inspiration by Caitlin May Photography

Wedding: -

Posted by Kate | 17 August, 2016

A beautiful wedding doesn’t have to stick to tradition – just ask the team behind this modern inspiration shoot.

Photographer Caitlin May says she wanted to showcase a different style of wedding in her picture-perfect shoot at Ashcombe Maze and Lavender Gardens in Shoreham, on the Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula.

“Something that was more fun, less classic, but still damn beautiful,” the photographer of eight years says.

Models Paris and Tess looked every inch the bohemian brides in a range of floaty gowns, two-pieces and whimsical accessories.

Caitlin says the shoot is geared at brides looking for something a little bit different and getting creative with fun accessories and statement jewellery.
