Nestled away in the heart of the Northamptonshire countryside, The Old Coach House is situated in the grounds of the historic Bragborough Hall and has been lovingly restored into a luxurious holiday let - the perfect location for our latest product photo shoot.
The beautiful four bedroom Coach House features a sunny patio area with an eight seater table, perfect for families or a group of friends to enjoy a special break together.
We contacted the owners to see if they could accommodate us and when we told them about our fantastic cause they were more than happy to help, allowing us to use the accommodation to provide the perfect backdrop for our home and furniture ranges - even supplying refreshments throughout the day!
Amy Cooksey, E-commerce Manager at Sue Ryder says, "First impressions really count when selling online and ‘lifestyle’ images are an essential component when trying to stand out from the crowd and attract customers."
‘We have some fantastic country-style products and were looking for a character property to showcase them in. When we found The Old Coach House in Braunston, a stone’s throw from our online shop HQ, we couldn’t believe our luck! Having fantastic imagery makes it much easier for our customers to visualise our products in their own homes."
For weeks prior to the shoot we’d been preparing, ensuring samples were here and planning the types of shots we wanted to get on the day.
"There are many different content areas on the site that need updating on a regular basis and so we have to ensure we have multiple images in varying sizes and styles to ensure the site stays looking fresh and interesting."
When the day of the shoot came around the weather was changeable to say the least.
‘We prioritised indoor shots first making use of the four double bedrooms and spacious living/dining areas. By the afternoon we took to the great outdoors and the pretty gravelled garden with its lush green planting.’
All in all, once it was time to call it a wrap we’d all grown quite fond of our surroundings and wished we were staying for the week! We’re looking forward to heading back there soon to shoot our stunning Christmas ranges.
All of the products you see here are available via the online shop (and some of our retail shops too) and you can book your stay at The Old Coach House online here.
