Like so many other young girls, as soon as I got my hands on Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden, I fell desperately in love with the beautiful scenes painted through Burnett’s use of imagery. It looks like Jennifer Corbett of As Ever Photography and I share this love, as the novel was the inspiration behind this lush styled shoot completed with the help of Lovebird Designs and The Irish Flower Farmer. And have I mentioned this loveliness takes place in Ireland?

From the photographer, As Ever Photography: “And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles.” The classic story The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett was my inspiration for this shoot and I was so fortunate to have had help from some amazing wedding artists to bring it to life. I previously lived in Ireland and traveled back “home” this past June; I organized this editorial for one of the days of my visit. These images were shot on location at a private Manor House with a Victorian walled garden in County Wicklow, Ireland.

From the moment you walk down the garden path, shaded by canopy of leaves, and unlock the rusted gate with the ancient skeleton key, you can’t help but fall in love with the charm and whimsy of this magical place. There is no end to the delightful sights on the grounds of the manor house — from the resident ducks to the lush pond to a darling vintage bicycle — there is something enchanting around every corner!

The organic florals were all sustainably grown on-site in the walled garden and intentionally arranged by Fionnuala Fallon (The Irish Flower Farmer), who also hand-dyed the silk ribbons. Jen Rojas of Cupcakes and Counting created the most beautiful 3-tiered cake with climbing vines and wildflowers from the garden as well. Hand-drawn floral sketches adorn the invitation suite designed by Vita Popov Studios and the tiniest of vines decorate our place setting as well, creating a modern, fine art garden party aesthetic that brides planning a summer wedding will love.
