A bride, one with the elements, wind, sea and earth


Hidden behind rugged rocks and the roaring sea a lonely bride becomes one with nature. Lost in thoughts, she sinks into her own world. A world, in which pale grey, tender rosé, and warm earth tones, is all that surrounds her.

With each step on the cold rocks she feels more connected to earth. With every gust of wind, that lets her dress dance, she feels how life inside her pulsates. And with each wave, crushing on the cliffs to her feet, her inner strength grows.

Free as a bird and light as a feather, sweet like a piece of cake and lovely as the perfume of precious flowers – after her symbiosis with Mother nature, this bride gives her a charming, new face…

Far away from commercial, sparkle and glamour this magnificent nature-loving bride inspiration arosed under the creative direction by Maru Photography, who was obviously inspired by America´s pristine West Coast: „This destination bridal inspiration shoot was inspired by the elements: wind, the sea and the earth.“ she told us and explained: „Recently, I have been moving my wedding photography coverage more and more toward a more organic, authentically-driven, naturally inspired destination bride, looking for an intimate, natural ceremony, more in tune with the nature and her love than with all the sparkle typically associated with a glamorous wedding day.“

The great event stylists of Wonderstruck Events supported her in planning, saw her visions and brought them to life with the appropriate details.

We are deeply impressed by the result of the amazing images of her own visions that Maru Photography shares with us now.
