The Lighthouse

Voguence-Linda Wendel-Fuerteventura-Lighthouse6

“I do not wish to be sad any longer,
and cry of woe for evermore.
He will return after all these years
from the far away and darkest seas.
The flowers are blooming in my garden
and wait with me for his return
and even if he´s far and I´m crying,
up in the lighthouse the fires burn.
Once the time will come, that we will hold again
´cause our love, my sailor man,
never has an end”

(Free translation of a Dutch fisherman song from the 17th century)

There is this beautiful love story of a young and brave woman called Maria Ursula von Schönau, who lived in this specific Chateau in the 17th century.
She fell madly in love with a fine young man, who wasn´t of her status. Still they were determined to marry, although she had to withstand her family and lost her heritage because of this decision.

I chose an outfit with a very classical and quite aristocratic looking pattern, which was blending in, in this wonderful location and story so well.

Feeling a little melancholic during the shoot, imagining the young Maria Ursula wandering through the gardens, torn between her family and her love and in the end decided to follow her heart.
