“The Secret Garden” at Falconhurst

Back in June when we thought the summer was never going to arrive we were asked to be involved in a styled shoot at Falconhurst in Kent.

AphroditeNet Photography had a vision of The Secret Garden with a very naturalistic style throughout the whole shoot.

For our part we met with Carol Jones to discuss this further and look at some preliminary shots that Tony had taken on his first recce to the beautiful grounds near Edenbridge.

The house and gardens were beautiful, very English and with amazing vistas over the Kent countryside. We put together some mood boards to check we were thinking along the same lines and discussed flower colours and choices to suit.

So on the day we packed the van with peonies, roses, sweet peas, stocks, camomile daisys all in pastel and vintage shades, along with jugs, watering cans, and a willow heart that we had made for the special gate in the garden.

The model was dressed in two separate looks and we designed various bouquets and head dresses to suit.

Falconhurst is a fantastic new venue and we hope that the styled shoot will help to promote it fully.

We had a wonderful time working with other industry professionals that we had never met see full list of credited professionals below.
