Sometimes I annoy myself with being too particular about where I shoot my outfits. I’d been carrying around this beautiful two piece by Natalia Grzybowski in my suitcase for nearly two months before I had the chance to shoot it with Luke. Originally I had planned to have a Parisian backdrop but when time slipped away from me I found myself making my way to Italy and wondering if I’d ever find a place that had the same romantic and ethereal feeling.We decided to bypass Milan this time to spend more days exploring Florence instead, and after setting foot here for the first time I was so glad we did. All my friends had told me of Florence was that it was “pretty”, but when we arrived I was immediately surprised by just how pretty it is! A town that is even more breathtaking at night when you’re wandering the streets with a rose from your love after a bottle of red wine.

A glittering carousel would of done just nicely for this shoot but we were drawn to this Duomo with a white pebbled floor and green and light pink colouring instead. It must have been the allure of climbing rocks in public or falling backwards on sinking surfaces in heels that won me over.
