All it took was some fantastically creative heads, a haunted ruin in the midst of a meadow, some pretty frocks, flowers and accessories and tadah – I can bring you another beautiful collaborative shoot.
The team behind the scenes deserve a bit of a round of applause: for the ignoring of the sunbathing snake, the dealing with pink knickers and the general rock-climbing and stuntwomen-ship that made for some amazing shots.
As always, I’m here in my role of behind-the-scenes-footage-taker, latté-bringer, kit-carrier and making-your-mouths-waterer.
Until the time comes when the impossibly talented Kate Hopewell-Smith is ready to share her beautiful shots with us you’ll have to make do with my amateur iPhone snaps. I promise to blog the ‘proper’ shoot the second it’s live.
In the meantime, the starring roles behind this hilariously fun shoot day were:
