The sun kissed the top of the trees & trickled between leaves to bath the styled shoot below in a glow.

Designed and photographed by Kate of the Girl in Gumboots Photography, this gorgeous Secret Garden styled shoot was inspired by and held in the magical Benvie Open Garden, a historic 70 acre garden and arboretum in the Natal Midlands.

First established on Benvie Farm in Karkloof in 1882 by John Geekie, the garden has stood the test of time and is currently managed by Geekie’s great granddaughter. It sounds like a very special place and I have to say, the cherished garden made the perfect location for the magical Secret Garden photo shoot!
