Chateau Partage: a Fairytale Dream
Once upon a time..
The Kiss of True Love - Inspired by Sleeping Beauty
Inspiration for this particular Fairytale styled shoot came from a timeless literary theme, the Kiss of True Love, which surfaces in quite a few classic Fairytales. From Sleeping Beauty in a bed of flowers, Snow White falling asleep due to a poisoned apple, & even the Little Mermaid, they all have one thing in common, the princess needs the Kiss of True Love to break the Spell she is under. Its not just princesses who need the kiss, the Prince also needs the magical kiss, lest we forget about the The Frog King, or Beauty and the Beast where he needs True Love's kiss to lift the curse. Even in our modern day culture we believe that to reach our Happily Ever After, we need the Kiss of True Love to lift us up and sweep us away into wedded bliss. Modern Day Movie, Dreamwork's animation Fairytale: "Shrek" even has Fiona the Ogre needing the Kiss of True Love to break the magical ogre spell she is under. Disney's Frozen also mentions True Love's Kiss, despite the kiss not actually working to unfreeze Anna and revealing treachery by Prince Hans. It turned out to be a sisterly Act of True Love later in that particular story which broke the spell. When we really start to look, the theme of True Love's kiss is literally all around us in the modern world. Its found hiding in dozens of dramatic movies, even the romantic comedy and its the main photographic highlight, "cant miss" shot for any Wedding Photographer, "Now you may Kiss the Bride!" and seal the deal.
