As the rain subsides and tins of Tete a Tete fill the barn, I feel optimistic Spring is on it’s way! Will I be saying this at the end of the week when I’m still wearing my wellies!?
With enquiries for engagement shoots landing in my inbox, I thought I would write another post on shoots at the barn.
We have delivered van loads of props to many shoots. These have to be planned with military precision. You can only use what you have booked and from my experience this doesn’t allow for flexibility and spontaneity on the day. We are of course more than happy to travel and last year had the pleasure of driving through the gates of Le Manoir. No hope of me ever meeting Raymond Blanc any other way!
If your shoot doesn’t require a Michelin Star location or a stately home as a back drop, why not book Hammer Hill Barn? With all the props to hand this is much easier and much more cost effective for you and certainly much easier for your stylist and photographer.
The view from the barn is stunning and nearby Thaxted offers lots of quirky spots such as the Windmill, Church and the Guildhall. There are also many wooded areas I can take you to. Take a look at our village website www.thaxted.co.uk. It’s actually a town, but very small, some say not dissimilar to Balamory!
From styled fashion shoots, engagement shoots, product shoots – we can provide as much or as little as you need. A full day at the barn is just £250.
This includes assistance with choosing props for your day, visiting locations and hot and cold refreshments. It doesn’t include lunch or any additional styling such as flowers, balloons, cakes etc., although these can be arranged at an additional cost. We can also advise on booking photographers, makeup artists etc. I will be onhand to help with prop selection, but if you require me to style the shoot, that comes under extras too!

Whatever your requirements, give us a shout, we would love to see you at Hammer Hill Barn.
