If you dream of the forest and fae, of a world with secrets unseen, of little mushroom circles and gossamer wings, then today’s post is for you. For the faerie bride who knows in her heart that her treasured books of faerie tales will provide more inspiration than traditional bridal magazines. I’ve collected a few choice images from around the web that evoke an ethereal, otherworldly aesthetic, that I hope will inspire you, and if anything fill your day with a sense of magic. And be sure to check back tomorrow as we’ll be featuring a beautiful styled shoot along this same theme!
“The Land of Faery, Where nobody gets old and godly and grave, Where nobody gets old and crafty and wise, Where nobody gets old and bitter of tongue.” ― W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire
“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world, For I would ride with you upon the wind, Run on the top of the disheveled tide, And dance upon the mountains like a flame.” ― W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire
