“A kind of light spread out from her. And everything changed colour. And the world opened out. And a day was good to awaken to” – East of Eden
The inspiration behind this shoot comes from the brides very early morning musings after waking on her wedding day in the quiet of her own company. Set on the grounds of the stunningly beautiful Longueville House, one of Irelands 18th century heritage properties in the heart of the Blackwater Valley, Co Cork, we were so charmed by the light radiating through the glass orangery and the versatility of the space that it became the main shoot location when the heavens decided to open. We kept to a very neutral and organic colour palette, lush florals and foraged foliage to create a very soft, calm and serene space.
