When St. Patrick’s day rolls around at SMP, we find ourselves scouring to find beautiful ways to inspire our readers. So when Amanda Wilcher sent over this gorgeous Ireland shoot styled to perfection by Pearl & Godiva, we knew we had found our pot of gold in feature form. Stylish, sophisticated and overflowing with inspiration, this gallery is pinch-yourself-pretty. See it all here.
From Amanda Wilcher Photography …Sometimes, the most perfect vision is the most simple. For this shoot, which took place on a day in early March, our vision was to come together to create images that were without complexity. Our story was told with a beautiful woman, natural flowing florals and the hint of a great love.
Creamy, pale and quietly sculptural in shape the girl danced in places of light, in the morning garden. The sun had bleached to the palest shades of nougat and apricot in the orangerie. We placed miniature still lives in a pride of place where they just caught the light and created arrangements of treasured finds, added twigs and flower stems and the whole thing just came to life. Claire Pettibone’s, covetable gowns flourished the garden scenes. Fragile, petal splashed gowns, of course.
Pale melancholic florals, and pure velvets was a beautiful morning glory. Organic elegance, and a understated vision gave this shoot an opulent innocence. A bejewelled and oxidised crown languished in the daylight to shine anew. This girl wasn’t nocturnal at all, she just came down to earth.
