The Stolen Child - Erich McVey Photography at the Pearl & Godiva Styling Pilgrimage

Nov 26, 2014 | Inspiration

We're incredibly thrilled to bring something very special to Wedding Sparrow today. Some of you may recall we travelled to Ireland in October to work with some of the industry's most talented vendors and meet some incredibly creative and wonderful attendees at the Pearl & Godiva Beauteous Workshop. It was a blessing to not only meet these wonderful people but to experience such beauty with them whilst learning so much. We hope these stunningly evocative images tantilise those fine art taste buds and that you'll join us at the next Styling Pilgrimage in 2015!

"Come away o human child!

To the waters and the wild

With a faery, hand in hand. 

For the world more full of weeping 

than you can understand."

~ W.B. Yeats, "The Stolen Child"

From Pearl and Godiva: "Enchant and bewitching, this tale was our inspiration, of a woodland faery coaxing away her lover into her wild world, away from the everyday disillusioned human existence. We brought this story to life, our faery cloaked in russet leaves, delicately clinging to her body, with delicate and whispy sheer fabrics, born of her magical realm. There was a bitter sweetness to her expressions, of sadness, longing and anticipation. Our story culminated in joy as the lovers danced in the falling evening light.

We are honoured to have PART 1 of our Styling Pilgrimage featured on Wedding Sparrow today and to share some of the magic we experienced and was captured by Erich McVey. We're still walking on air after 3 days of collaborating, teaching, sharing and creating. Following the success of our first workshop in Morocco workshop in April, we decided to host our gathering at home, to give our visitors a taste of Irish hospitality as they take a peek into the world of Pearl & Godiva. On leaving, our attendees hearts were truly full, their vision cleansed and their spirits of creativity much enlightened. 

Through our workshop we find ways to refresh our thinking, our perceptions, and most of all, our creative minds. Retrain your eyes to see in a pure and stainless way enables you to find endless inspiration in the apparent void."
