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.
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.
With only weeks to go until the London Marathon, we are stepping up our fundraising efforts and as part of this, came up with the idea to offer our photography for donations. We set up a mobile studio at our good friends, The Royal William Bakery and offered couple and family photography to those visiting; as well as amusing portrait photos which really brings out the characters of people.
The time we spent at the bakery was really fun and we met some lovely people, with everyone managing to raise just under £300 for Leukaemia CARE. A big thanks to all who donated and took part it’s really appreciated and we hope you love your photos.
The Royal William Bakery in Plymouth, as part of their ethos, had a gathering with Jane Baxter. While photographing we also shot video footage to put together a short clip of the evening.
Music by the talented Helios and Parov Stelar.
As previously posted, ‘Our Bakeries’ recently moved not far from their old location and we covered the photography of the new bakery being built and moving in equipment.
We were asked to return to photograph on the first weekend they were open, we decided on the Sunday as the local market was on and wanted to get a few photos with this in place. Without even advertising, not even a single sign outside, the bakery was nearing full capacity. With two of us moving around, documenting the ambiance and hustle of a fresh October day we were able to seize the moment and bring it across in our photography.
