Here’s something a little different for my blog from one of my favourite wedding venues.
I’m a recommended photographer at Poundon House, so have had the pleasure of shooting many fabulous weddings over there. As well as a stunning wedding venue, Poundon is now also emerging as a leading venue for yoga retreats. I was therefore delighted when the Poundon team asked if I could take some publicity photos towards the end of last year as they prepared for their Autumn Light 2 yoga retreat.
The retreat featured Charlie Morgan, one of the country’s leading yoga instructors. Charlie was accompanied by her gorgeous miniature dachshund Chip, who managed to find her way into a few of the photos too.
The light for the photoshoot was amazing. Late in the year the sun stays low in the sky all day. This gives such fabulous light for portraits. Combined with all of the beautiful backdrops around Poundon’s grounds, I did feel like I was in photographer’s heaven! The down side of such a bright day though was that it was very cold. But Charlie was brilliant throughout and she did get plenty of chances to warm up while changing outfits.
Also joining us for the photos were the rest of the retreat team including Poundon’s own Alicia, the driving force behind the Poundon House yoga retreats.
I’m looking forward to being back behind the camera at Poundon again soon in my usual role as wedding photographer.
