 The driveway leads to the front garden and side entrance, wisteria covers the font of the Georgian home. We chose this location due to the versatility of the barn extension and extra options in the garden area.  On this shoot I was joined by the talented stylist Hilary Lowe. We had previously worked together on two wonderful location shoots at The Welsh House cottages in Pembrokeshire. Designer/Makers and brands involved included Thornback&Peel, Galapagos Designs and Foxy Pheasant.
