This inspiration shoot took place at the pretty Auckland Winter Gardens at the Domain. We had the most perfect natural light making the surrounding floral colours pop! This beautiful gown by VINKA design
The gorgeous ‘Amanda’ gown by Vinka Design a creamy V neck beaded lace gown with chiffon and tulle detail. This dress is truly stunning, a heavily beaded piece with embroidered lace which came from the Netherlands. We learnt from Anita at Vinka Design that when the lace is designed it does not get put in to production until they have orders submitted from four designers.
Each gown from Vinka Design is truly a one off individual work of art, no two dresses will be the same. We couldn’t resist a few cheeky snaps of the replanting that was going on while we there and also capturing some of the pretty flowers on show.
