Vintage Glamour in The Maids Head Hotel

In a previous post I mentioned a recent shoot I worked on which had us running through corridors in the oldest hotel in the UK. Dating back over 800 years The Maids Head proudly sits in one of Norwich's most historic areas - Tombland.

Now it's fair to say, it's not been modernised to swanky minimalist standards, it's still what you might picture when you think of a traditional hotel, but with it's historic wood panelled function rooms and some of the bedrooms having amazing features like beams and fireplaces, it was lovely to be able to get inside and play! 

About 13 hours after leaving my house, several hours of styling and many outfit changes, some of us finally sat down for a well earned glass of wine in the bar to have a debrief of how the day had gone. I wish we'd worn pedometers because I bet those constant trips up and down stairs and down long corridors really added up, but when you're working with lovely people and some amazing fashions it doesn't really feel like work....... 

We can't reveal many images yet as some are to be revealed in the official Norwich Fashion Week mini mag and more are reserved for publication in another magazine, but I should have lots to share with you over the next few months from this and several other shoots I've been working on. 

The NFW mini mag looks set to be a great little read and will be going out to lots of businesses in Norwich, it will also available at all four main fashion shows.

Some of the images we can reveal so far and some sneaky looks behind the scenes....
