Prepare to be transported through time as we immerse ourselves in this magical ancient forest styled wedding shoot.

Photographer Rachel Leintz captured this shoot last year and reached out on Instagram to Lucy Watson, a then upcoming Irish model who would soon be walking the London Fashion Week catwalk.

Lucy has a wonderful, nymph like-look that made me think of an Irish “Fe” or fairy, flitting through a deep wood, surrounding an ancient castle. This became the vision for the Lady of the Wood look we created. The Gown Lucy wore for this part of the story was a fabulous “Luna” Gown by Kelly Faetanini, which was provided by Beau Bridal of Dublin.

Lucy’s mother, Shirley Watson is a florist in Ireland and provided the floral crown, woodland bouquet, as well as the stunning deep purple lily bouquet for our second look.

For the second look, Rachel brought over an Anna Campbell gown (borrowed from Lovely Bride), dripping with jewels, showcasing a gorgeous empire waist. She crowned this look with a marvellous handmade tiara made by The Hand Made Tiara of London. Lucy was surrounded by the ancient rooms of Ardgillen Castle for this portion of the shoot, capturing the drama and the beauty of the Lady of the Manor.
