Graceful elegance


Her red lips talk about passion, her expressive eyes about love and desire. A greyish blue dreamlike dress wraps her body in easiness and elegance. A sparkling band crowns her pretty head.

Aged bells play their song, welcoming the bride in their ancient world. Expectantly she looks around, exploring her new empire.

Faded, forsaken and forfeited it longed for a queen to shine in new splendour. Magical, majestic and sophisticated she fills it with life.

Inspired by the natural palette of the architecture and the old stones of Mission Juan Capistrano and a stunning Alexandra Grecco robe this breathtaking editorial was lovingly created to showcase elegant style.

With her sure instinct for flowers and elegance Nancy Teasley of Oak and the Owl granted this shooting its uniqueness.

Photographer Beatrice of Luna de Mare Photography had the pleasure to capture this special world on her camera. Here she wants to share her most amazing images with us…
