One cloudy morning in May, We drove to Waterford to one of this beautiful little farm and vineyard in Waterford called Bonnieheath. The estate grows one of the most calming flowers, yes! you guessed it right the Lavender. As soon as we entered the farm through their cozy little shop we were welcomed by the aroma of Lavender. Just a night before we had this long late-night event and some sleepless nights before that, the energy level was down and every nerve in the body was screaming for mercy. One of their associates made us go through the fields where two types of lavender grow and it was not in bloom yet. July is the month of their full bloom as described by the lovely farm people. We strolled through the fields of little lavender plants with a few blooms here n there but that half an hour stroll was so refreshing that creative juices started flowing right there and we decided to do this bridal shoot.
By the mid of July, we visited the farm with our little team and had a great time working and enjoying the beauty and serenity of the purple fields and vineyard in the background. Once in the field your mood elevates itself, two hours we spent seemed like a few minutes of fun and frolic with friends. Not only our couple had a jam in the fields, capturing their candid fun and great chemistry in the lens was so frolicking. It was the first time we tried lavender chocolates and I must admit quite an exotic treat.
Those little purple flowers do have some magical effect, a stroll through them with a loved one is enough to make you fall in love all over again. Myrtle Reed described these magical purple beauties in such a romantic manner…she said, “it always seems to me as if the lavender was a little woman in a green dress, with a lavender bonnet and a white kerchief. She’s one of those strong, sweet, wholesome people, who always rest you, and her sweetness lingers long after she goes away”.
