Princess of the poppies

I'm so excited to bring you today's post in collaboration with Robert Marriott Photography. It's been on my dream photo list of locations since forever to shoot in a field of poppies. A'la Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz except I wouldn't be sleeping in these anytime soon! I shot these back in July with Robert Marriott Photography once again and we couldn't have picked a better day for weather. The sky was bright blue and the field was simply breathtaking, covered in a mass of poppies as far as the eye could see.

This dress is another classic that I've kept for years and it's from good old Primark of all places! Cheap, cheap, cheap but I simply love the print; vibrant but with an almost watercolour finish to it. I do see the blue version of this dress a lot in charity shops- so if you like it, look out for it! What was so magical about this shoot was that there were hundreds of butterflies sitting and fluttering away amongst the poppies. I did have a disney moment when I was try to get one to sit on my finger, but they weren't having any of it.  That's the problem with butterflies, I find: never willing to play to the camera!

Dress- Primark
Parasol- Ebay

A massive thank you Rob for this shoot! I also thrilled to announce I've been invited to Rob and Claire's vintage-inspired wedding later this month.  Expect one more in the next day or so with the second shoot we did.
