“I knew I was destined to love you.”
- Gwendolen Fairfax, The Importance of Being Ernest
The shoot takes the Edwardian theme, and Oscar Wilde's inspiration of the delicate and fragile nature of love. There's nod to the softer more flowing clothes of the Pre-Raphaelites, the tablescape and decor reflect the Arts and Crafts movement.
Featured are our separates from our Whispers of Love Collection; a Lily slip dress in silver blue satin and a Naomi top in delicate spotted tulle and French lace, fastened with tiny pearl buttons. And those lace boots by House of Elliot are quite simply divine!
Calligraphy, candles, a stunning meringue cake and some beautiful flowers by Sarah Maylin, this shoot has everything! Enjoy!
