It's been a busy few weeks as we have been madly getting samples ready  and sourcing props for a photo shoot. We are shooting part of our range with a slightly vintage feel and the other part with a very natural country feel.

When I briefed the photographer  about 3 weeks ago  the hedgerows were yet to spring in to life and flowers are tricky this time of year. I have been studying the hedgerows for signs in life in the hope that I can use something local in the shots.

I took a walk the morning before the shoot  in the glorious sunshine and it reminded me how lucky we are to live where we do, the hedgerows had sprung in to life and I returned home armed with cuttings of catkins and plum & apple blossom, and raided our garden for green & purple hellebores  and euphorbia. 

When we started shooting the  range shots  it was lovely to see our work which is inspired by the Oxfordshire countryside, accessorised so beautifully by flowers & foliage gathered from my garden and surrounding hedgerows.

These are a few shots of the work in progress, I cannot wait to see all the shots we have done once they have been edited, we have used local stylist & photographer Cristina Colli www.cristinacolli.com and she has done a beautiful job, keep an eye on our website as they will start to go up in the next few weeks.
