I’m delighted to share a glimpse of a Spring Editorial shoot I had the pleasure of organising at the family-owned Avington Park, just east of Winchester.

Nestled in 150 acres of private parkland along the banks of the River Itchen, this remarkable estate has a rich history of hosting royalty, including King Charles II and his famous mistress, Nell Gwynn.

Avington Park’s lush grounds and opulent house continue to serve as an exquisite backdrop for lavish events and weddings, making it a truly enchanting venue.

The inspiration behind this shoot was the freshness and purity of spring, with a focus on incorporating various shades of blues and soft whites to create an atmosphere of elegance and grace.

To achieve this vision, I worked alongside an incredibly talented group of suppliers who each contributed their unique skills and creativity.

Together, we transformed Avington Park into a celebration of spring, where delicate floral arrangements, exquisite table settings, and bespoke attire blended seamlessly with the estate’s timeless charm.

As you explore the gallery, you’ll discover how the rich history of Avington Park, combined with the creative vision of our team, resulted in a harmonious and enchanting setting for this shoot. The incredible, head turning designs of Halfpenny London added the perfect level of romance and drama.
