Lost In A Fairy Tale























Details: Dress- Delias // Boots- Bakers // Rings-Vintage // Floral Crown-F21 // Glasses- RayBan


Prior to taking these photos, I had another location in mind. I went to said location and unfortunately there were people everywhere, cars, etc.  I ended up taking a short walk with my tripod and somehow found this hidden passage in the woods. I walked through what seemed like a small set of trees, but it opened up to a huge trail. I felt like I was in a fairy tale, there were berries growing, animals everywhere, and the sounds of the trees blowing in the wind. I had to stop and look around for a second just to catch my breath. Something so beautiful, has been hidden here all these years, and I never once took a chance to notice it. As I walked further and further into the woods, I found myself getting a little antsy, wondering if someone or something was hiding back there. We've all seen the movies, girl walks into woods, gets captured, the rest is history. It's a bit embarrassing but it felt quite movie like, and it was extremely calming at the same time.  The sun was shining right through the trees at the exact moment I walked through the passageway and it felt perfect. Sometimes all it takes is something so small, to make the day a whole lot brighter. This is definitely one of my favorite locations to date, and I have a feeling it's going to be making an appearance on this blog quite often.

  12. My favourite thing about this post is that you said "I went to said location."

    Oh and that STUNNING white dress :)

    It's nice that you found such a beautiful location. I do shoots with my sister sometimes and we often find little nooks of greenery in the oddest of places. It's the best thing that can happen on a shoot :)

  21. These photos are stunning! I'm tempted to buy this dress and dye it a different colour for a wedding as I love the shape and details. I used to get catalogues for Delias when I was younger and I looooved looking through them, but could never buy anything from there as we don't have one in Canada.

    Anwyays, you look gorgeous as usual miss! Love these photos...they're dreamy/
