The Welsh House

The Welsh House

Pembrokeshire

May / September 2016

 I worked with stylist Hilary Lowe on the first of our location shoots in May 2016. Hilary lives in Pembrokeshire and told me about a lovely holiday cottage in the area, after the success of the first shoot we returned in September of that year. The owner, Dorian, is also a painter and some of his work decorates the walls of the cottages.

 The modernist gem that is Bryncyn cottage. The original cottage, when seen on arrival, seems traditional in design. It is only when you enter and walk through to the kitchen and rear that you see this wonderful concrete strcuture.

 The back door of Bryn Eglur, which feels like the front door.This day was so dark they we had to open this door and shoot many products in the natural light of the hallway.
