Elle Decoration, July 2009

This shoot from the UK version of Elle Deco is aptly titled ‘The garden of earthly delights’, and that is exactly what it brings to mind. I was blown away by the beauty of this shoot, by stylist Finola Inger with photographer Craig Fordham. The shoot evokes a bygone era with the models’ pre-Raphaelite hair and styling combined with vintage style dresses and corsages. Shot against a back drop of antique architectural pieces and bright grass and flowers, the images are other worldly. Florals are huge right now both in fashion and interiors and the whimsical Gibberd Garden provides the perfect backdrop.
