"Secrets of Love"
“Here is the deepest secret nobody knows,
here is the root of the root, and the bud of the bud, and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide,
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart,
I carry your heart, I carry it in my heart”
Inspired by the 'deepest secret’ in EE Cumming’s poem, I dreamed up a shoot which would reflect the many secrets of love.
I chose Two Temple Place in London as the setting not only because it is only of my favourite venues but because I believe it to be one of London’s best kept secrets, an exclusive hidden gem in the heart of London which remains largely undiscovered by couples.
As Lord Astor’s former family home, the venue has a number of secrets of its own such as secret doors hidden in wooden panels and even a secret Champagne cellar - as such, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop in which to explore our very own Secrets of Love shoot ….
Our secrets of love revealed themselves in a number of ways such as the hidden language of the flowers we chose, the wedding gown which revealed a daring open back, the secret message so beautifully inscribed around the circumference of the wedding cake, and further actual secrets to a happy marriage which were revealed on the back of the guests’ placement cards.
I was over the moon when You and Your Wedding once again wanted to feature my work in their magazine.
