Lydhurst: A very special place.

Last year I was lucky enough to do a photo shoot at Lydhurst - a family owned country estate in West Sussex.

 On arrival I was struck by the beauty of the landscape, and with the sense of ancientness I felt my pre-shoot stress disperse. We were welcomed by Amber (who owns the estate with her husband Adrian) and she then showed us around some great locations.

 The team (which comprised of myself, photographer Emma Croman, model Hattie and Emma’s dog Monty) had a very creative day.

  I would challenge anyone not to feel a sense of deep relaxation here. On the estate are holiday cottages and shepherd’s huts available to rent plus a large retreat space and there are further plans to welcome the outside in.
