The Twilight Garden

Top - Coast, C/O John Lewis | Skirt - Coast, C/O John Lewis | Shoes - Dune, C/O John Lewis

A couple of weeks ago I found myself surrounded by flowers in one of the most gorgeous settings I've ever seen, wearing a beautiful outfit and being photographed by Alex Cameron. Sounds like a dream, right!?

Thankfully, it was totally real (although I could have definitely pinched myself a couple of times!) and was all to help showcase John Lewis's amazing wedding guest wear range. Of course, when they asked me to choose an outfit the first thing I went for was a tulle skirt! I had actually had my eye on this stunning one from Coast for quite a while, as well as the bow shaped bodice top, so it was the perfect opportunity to add them to my wardrobe. 

Needless to say, I'm absolutely thrilled with the final photos. They're absolutely stunning and to be shot by Alex was just a dream come true. She's been one of my favourite photographers for a long time now and she did not disappoint. 

I definitely felt like a fairy tale combination of Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella in this outfit, especially because of the gorgeous metallic blue shoes that just screamed 'glass slipper' to me! I'm now quietly waiting for an event where I can bust them out again. John Lewis also do an incredible selection of bridesmaid's dresses (and I reckon my tulle skirt would look fabulous on a bridesmaid too!) so be sure to check them out if you or a friend will be walking down the aisle soon! 

All of the photos were shot in the Hampstead Pergola and Hill Gardens, which may well be the most magical place I've ever been (plus it's free to get in!). 100% going back for some down time as it's simply stunning and like something out of a story book. 

I've been so excited to share these with you all, so I really hope you like the photos! x
