It’s not very often that you wrap up warm in the 30-degree heat. However, our latest photo shoot saw fake snow and festive jumpers, despite shooting during one of the hottest summers that the UK has ever seen.
Our team travelled to a beautiful cabin in the heart of Worcestershire, a county in the West Midlands of England. It was the perfect location to create a beautiful Christmas scene and show off our new season range.
It seems such a long time ago now, but it was definitely very memorable. We shot during one of the hottest summers the UK had ever seen. Wearing festive jumpers and our lovely warm coats in the 30-degree heat wasn’t ideal, making it difficult for the models. However, they soldiered through as real pros.
The world cup was in full swing when we were shooting, we had the radio set up so we could listen along when we had a chance. We were also able to catch some of the match on a laptop screen in the garden during lunch.
Our last shoot day was actually the day that England were knocked out of the world cup. After eating dinner together, we waved flags, painted our faces and watched England with much commiseration as they were unfortunately knocked out.
Throughout the shoot we had lots of fake snow delivered and spread out. Charlotte, one of our Art Directors said the memory that will always stick with her was it being incredibly hot. Lighting a cosy fire in the 30-degree heat was far from fun! It was also very surreal to be in shorts and t-shirts in the snow. Although, despite the struggle of the heat we felt very lucky to be in a very beautiful location.
