The setting at Knowle Hall in the West Midlands
Visiting to check it out before the shoot I fell in love, its my dream home in the most dreamy location and perfect for what were looking for for this shoot.
Beautiful weather for shoot day!
We were so blessed with the weather on the day- 24 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. Only problem was it did make wearing masks, with sunglasses, not only look crazy but a little hot! A totally new experience
Me and Marianna getting used to our new masks!
We all signed contracts on the morning, checking our temperatures, washing our hands regularly, keeping 2 meters apart (except the stylist and make up artist with the model who wore the correct PPE) and set up viewing stations on our own personal phones. A totally new experience for all of us, it took a little getting used to but all in all it worked well under the circumstances and I hope you all agree that the images we managed to create are lovely.
Beautiful Model Alice Stoner behind the scenes
Its a very wearable new collection, with lots of colourful fun pieces and timeless gold. We really wanted to give the feel of those long hot afternoons of late summer, when you are tanned, relaxed and lazing around in a different dress each day.
Thats where the wardrobe came in, lets face it we have so many dresses how could we not use our own wardrobes! Combining mine, Marianna's and Sally's (a very good friend of ours - Marianna and Sally went to school together as well as travelling but thats a whole other story.. she is a stylist too!) own wardrobes we set about styling the model.

We were working with the MOST amazing team again, I love working with the photographer Michelle Beatty she has shot the last 4 campaigns for us which says everything, we love her work and she is a pleasure to work with.

Jessica Kell is our make up artist of choice, she is wonderful and has worked with us on the last 4 shoots too so she totally gets what we want.
