When I first started my blog, I did a series of posts of me dressed in rather wonderful dresses 👗, in a number of different gardens. I never really explained the reason for these – and really is just because I love dresses – proper dresses and because it is fun photographing in gardens and outside country houses. Mummy very kindly took all the photos for these ‘shoots’ and we have had a really very fun time exploring a number of gardens and houses, and I am looking forward to doing more 😊. Although I am not always the easiest model – I make funny faces by accident, and sometimes I get embarrassed about being photographed in public so we have minor Mother / daughter heated discussions – however mostly we have come away with some really excellent photos and have greatly enjoyed ourselves.
Here is a lovely photo shoot, shot at Amberley Castle 🏰in Sussex. I am wearing a vintage dress 👗, it really is a proper princess 👸dress, and sometimes I can’t quite believe people actually went to parties in dresses such as these (actually I really wish we still did). The dress in the bright blue looks wonderful against the castle backdrop, and we had a really good sunny day ☀️ for photographing. Amberley Castle was built by the Bishops of Chichester, and there has been a structure there since 1103 – the fortifications, walls and gatehouse arrived around 1377. It really is a rather whimsical place, with ruins still inside the walls, they are now a rather stunning feature of the garden. Really the best part is that it is a hotel, so you can go and stay within the castle walls. The drive slopes down hill away from the castle entrance and it really does feel as though a prince might gallop 🐎 up any moment and sweep you away….
