Warren House, Surrey ~ Deco Debutante Inspired Shoot
Recently I had the pleasure of being asked by the lovely Amelia Barnes from Vintage Floral Teas to be the photographer for a little shoot at Warren House she had in mind…inspired by the Deco Debutante scene. Amelia gathered together some hand picked suppliers for her shoot, and together I think it created a rather gorgeous inspirational shoot. The back drop for it was in a quiet little spot in Kingston, Surrey – rather lovely indeedy! In the early 1900s, Warren House was the ideal setting for royal hospitality and society parties. The owners of Warren House – the Pagets – were great friends of King Edward, and featured prominently in both London and New York societies. Lady Paget was the former Miss Minnie Stevens of New York, and was well known amongst fashionable society both in London and across the waters in America. With this in mind, Amelia rightly felt that Warren House with all this rich cultural history would serve as the ideal backdrop for her shoot – and she also took further inspiration from well known style icons from the 1930’s, such as Wallis Simpson and the glamour of the actress Romola Garai in the film Glorious 39.
And finally, I must give a special mention to the other very talented creative wedding peeps who poured their time and energy into creating the wonderful results…
