Once Upon A Dream

"I know it's true, that visions are seldom all they seem, 

But if I know you, I know what you'll do, You'll love me at once,

The way you did, once upon a dream"

It was such a joy styling this dreamy editorial shoot for Confetti Magazine. Luttrellstown Castle is full of fairytale surroundings and rooms with old world charm, which just added to the beauty of this shoot. Paula O'Hara does it again with these magical images, and  it was amazing to have the talents of Ann Marie from A New Leaf Floral Design on board as well- look at those gorgeous, lush florals! Our inspiration for this shoot was to bring in the existing elements of Luttrellstown, by combining subtle, underlying old world fairy tales with bit of modernization. The palette of soft pinks, rich berry tones, accented with gold created a lovely combination and I love how the sun came out and cast an ethereal glow on the models. Thank you to all of the wonderful suppliers & creatives who made this shoot so incredible! If you would like to see more of this shoot and the dress suppliers, please pick up your copy of Confetti at your nearest newsagent, it's on shelves now!
