Honey Themed Shoot – Deans Court, Wimborne
With the sun pouring through the window it seems appropriate to share this summery photo shoot with you. The honey themed shoot was a collaborative effort between a team of talented local suppliers and the brainchild of Anna Morgan Photography. Anna knew that she wanted to use Deans Court in Wimborne as the backdrop to our shoot and asked me to come on board to assist with styling.
Deans Court, a former Deanery to the Minster, is a hidden gem in the centre of Wimborne. The estate has been in the Hanham family since 1548 and boasts romantic ancient gardens, containing a Saxon fishpond fed by a chalk trout stream, an apiary, orchard, herb garden, mature specimen trees and an old kitchen garden with a beautiful ‘crinkle-crankle’ serpentine wall.
The apiary inspired us to theme the shoot around honey with yellow being a dominant colour. I set to work sourcing the flowers, items for the tablescape and general props. It was lovely to work with such a great team of suppliers and to be given complete creative freedom.
