Behind the Scenes at the O&C Butcher SS19 Photoshoot

We had a fantastic spring/summer photoshoot on Monday at The Wentworth Hotel in Aldeburgh.  Teamwork is definitely the name of the game on a day when we have to fit so much in to one day to cover key looks for both spring and summer. Alas the budget doesn’t stretch to warmer climes so the models were absolute stars for bracing a strong Northerly breeze on Aldeburgh beach.

It may turn into a bit of an Oscar’s speech but we must thank a few key people for making the day so great:

Sylvaine Poitau has been our photographer for several years now. She is totally bonkers and we love her for it as she brings so much energy and fun to the shoot. Bravo and thank you again Sylvaine, can’t wait to see the photos!

Suzie Love has organised shoots for us since 2015, working her magic on hair and makeup as well as production.  Thank you, Suzie or should we say Namaste…

We’ve been blessed with some lovely models in the past and this season was no exception. Thank you to Tatiana and Luke from Mustard Models. You were great fun and you worked so hard all day in the chilly weather.  It makes such a difference to spend the day with models who get on so well with everyone, thank you!

Thank you also to Holly, Poppy and Abi – the assistants who all had to put up with the cold and try their hardest not to lose the light reflectors into the North Sea.

The Wentworth Hotel is a bit of an Aldeburgh institution just like O&C so it felt like an obvious place for the shoot. It has lots of great location opportunities inside and out and is of course perfectly positioned on the sea front.  The staff there are lovely and very accommodating so if you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Aldeburgh do look them up.  Apologies for any disruption we caused guests but we must thank two lovely chaps who agreed to be in a photo with Luke so thank you, Ian and Nick, we’ll send you a photo soon!

Even Munchies gets a mention here because they supplied our lunch but we ate all the sandwiches before we took a photo, oops. Thank you though, very tasty!
