We were invited and commissioned by the Duchy of Cornwall to document HRH Prince Charles viewing the exhibition at Poundbury for it’s 20th anniversary. The exhibition was held at the Buttercross, the new home of our good friends at The Butter Market Bakery.
The Long Barn is a beautiful 5 star gold holiday let deep within the Somerset countryside with views of the Quantock hills one way and the blackdown hills the other.
We photographed the barn, capturing the relaxing and tranquil feel and decor, as well as let prospective clients see the rooms and amenities in an artistic way. The photos are to be used on the clients new website and promotional material.
Here are just a few of the photos, many more, including ‘standard’ room shots were also included for more traditional uses such as submitting photos to visitbritain.com and other websites.
The Alexandra hotel asked us back to photograph their dining room as they have recently had it refurbished and wanted to update their website and marketing material to reflect this.
We also photographed the gardens with their fantastic views over Lyme Bay and the tower within the grounds.
We were asked to document the River Cottage HQ Easter Fair so River Cottage would have stock images to use for promotion and marketing of this and other future events on their website.
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall also made an appearance, meeting visitors and signing cookbooks.
We spent some time in Poundbury, a new town on the outskirts of Dorchester in the county of Dorset, England. It is built according to the principles of Prince Charles who is known for holding strong views challenging the post-war trends in town planning.
‘Our Bakeries’ have been building a new bakery to open this summer and we have been following the progress of the build by popping back every few months to photograph the current state. It’s shaping up to be a really nice bakery with it’s dome glass top giving some lovely views over Poundbury and the surrounding countryside.
We not only photographed the bakery but also the surrounding area and the shops local to the bakery, since Poundbury is very much built in keeping with the gathering ethos that Our Bakeries is known for it seemed only right to meet a few of the locals and include them.
Below are a few photos from the day.
