The Enchanted Forest fairy photography experience takes place at our studio in West Sussex three times a year and these exciting weekends are filled with magic, sparkle and a good deal of fairy giggles along the way.
When I dreamed up the Enchanted Forest as a venue for fairy photography, it was never about wheeling volumes of little girls through the door for a simple photo shoot in front of a backdrop and a couple of trees. I wanted it to be a special and truly magical experience for them – to feel as real as possible that they really were entering a fairy world. So, for the reason, the Forest is a complete environment filled with hidden treasures to discover and fairy stories about the residents (there are a few cheeky woodland creatures that live there) and props that we use.
When you arrive at the studio (we are based in Crawley Down, which is halfway between Crawley and East Grinstead), we take a short walk up the woodland path and then our first task it to make sure your fairy is dressed for the occasion. So she can choose from my range of handmade and unique fairy dresses, all of which are customisable with flower and other accessories so she can create her dream outfit. Then we enter the Forest where your fairy receives her wings (also handmade and completely unique to us her) and chooses her wand – these are of course only licensed for good magic for health and safety reasons.
Then I gently guide her around the various areas of the Forest to capture stunning images of her in fairy form – when I said that I didn’t want it to just be a photo shoot, I didn’t mean that the resulting images had to be anything less than magical and perfect!
A visit to the Forest costs £25 for a single fairy or £35 for fairy siblings (we have costumes for boys too) and this price includes your favourite digital image to download, print and share as much as you would like to. Unlike pretty much every other fairy photography experience in the UK, there’s no sales or viewing session to attend. You simply view and order any additional photos from your online gallery and in case you were thinking that the prices for this would be exorbitant or hidden in advance, the cost for a single additional digital image is £12 or it’s £50 if you simply can’t choose and want everything in your gallery (usually 20-30 images).
