[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It was a beautiful summer’s day today here in Suffolk, and with temperatures reaching 35′ in some parts of the country we were all welcomed with news of it being the hottest June day in 41 years.

And what better way to enjoy the sunshine than to take Daisy out for her ‘completion’ photo shoot before she leaves our workshops next week to enjoy a new life in the north of Scotland.

We were extremely fortunate on this shoot with the location. Although Suffolk is packed full of stunning locations I think we would have struggled to find a location more fitting and perfect for today’s shoot than Priory Park, right here on our doorstep too.

Priory Park stands on the banks of the River Orwell looking across to The Royal Harwich Yacht Club and attractive village of Pin Mill. The Priory Park estate has been owned and run by the Little family for over 35 years and it was James Little himself that allowed us access.

Automated gates lead into 100 acres of south facing parkland, surrounded by rolling pastures, ancient woodland and stretching to the river’s edge. Beautifully landscaped grounds feature immaculate lawns, lily ponds, woodland walks and panoramic views across the River Orwell. Priory Park has an upmarket and exclusive feel throughout and ordinarily a photo shoot like ours would not be permitted on the private land but we were granted special permission on this occasion and we are so grateful.

We chose a couple of different spots for today’s shoot and as always, Jason from Sugar and Spice Photography in Felixstowe was on hand to do a fantastic job. Here are some sneaky ‘behind the scenes’ pictures of the shoot before we get the completed portfolio back from Jason.
