We wanted the perfect location to reflect the opulence of our new collection, and we found it in Aynhoe Park in Oxfordshire. A stately home and hotel used for weddings, parties, events and ....photoshoots. The owner collects interesting and awe inspiring artefacts, statues and furniture that are dotted around the rooms. From Roman statues and pillars, Museum stoneware to giant giraffes and disco balls- the venue is a photographers dream.
The Orangery at Aynhoe Park
We choose the Orangery and outside grounds for our photoshoot, paying particular attention to the Roman stoneware features to add Italian flair to our shoot- which is what our brand it all about.
Classical stoneware fills the walls of the Orangery
Our new collection comprises of 49 pieces, so its a very large collection- two models were needed for the shoot.
Kristina and Antonella working together
The models we choose were Kristina Rudy and Antonella Balzer. Antonella with her delicate refined beauty and Kristina with her fiery darker vibe complimented each other beautifully for our elegant Italian inspired shoot.
Our friend Sally from MorStyle helping with the styling
Working with our usual team, we are used to each others vibes and know we will get the best results. Michelle Beatty is super organised, we can trust her to get the job done with good results. Nice Productions always produce the most beautiful videos for us, they are genius'- I'm sure you will agree when you see the edit of our latest video- . The shoot went perfectly- and we are delighted with the results!
