Photo Shoot Fun!

What else would we be doing on a slightly sunny March morning but carrying large pots full of beautiful plants as we dress the set for a super collaborative photo shoot!

Brought together by Gilly Page & Bethany Stanley we converged on the beautiful setting of Lees Farm for a wild woodland inspired shoot out in the stunning Shropshire countryside.  We were hosted by the fabulous Emma Cantillion  from The Barn at Lees farm, new luxury accommodation nestled in the heart of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, yes really!

Outside the yurt......saving the wonders of the inside for the full shoot pics...You'll just have to wait!

The week before saw some late evenings as I played with ideas for the shoot and our gown, created especially to compliment Gillys' flower crown and the woodland setting....

Excited about the extra tulle pieces in the train to add a free, boho feel to the back of the gown.

Gilly Pages's wonderful floral creation adds the finishing touch to the lovely Victoria's gown for the day.  I just love these beautiful; pastel colours, the perfect Summer combination.

Very proud of my carefully arranged wood pile...I am taking the credit for that!
