Grande Fete Versailles 5 Model Stately Home Shoot Chelmsford 17th March 2025

On Monday 17th March 2025, we will be shooting in this breathtaking stately home. Our theme is 'Grande Fete Versailles' - a hark back to the 18th Century, with outlandish gowns, pastel colours, feather headpieces and stunning detailing. Once a year, they hold a big party in the Palace of Versailles and everyone dresses up in fabulous 18th C costumes - this is our inspiration for the day and indeed one of our models is a regular! Our amazing location has been used for film & TV, including most recently as the White House in the Crown.

Our models for this event will be Emily Massey, Yinsey, Holly, Natasha Groves and Darcie Louise. We also have an Oscar nominated hair and wig stylist with us on the day!

There will be a combination of lighting set up for you or we will use natural light plus reflectors (I'll be on hand to assist) meaning you don't need to worry about anything but taking amazing pictures. OR, you are welcome to bring your own battery operated lights.

 I’ve deliberately kept group sizes small to ensure a relaxed shoot where everyone has the same opportunity to shoot and work with our models. You will be working in groups of 4 with timed 121 time, working with one model on rotation before moving on to the next.

The cost? An astonishingly good value £295 per person for a session full of amazing gowns, fabulous modelling and a few laughs guaranteed. This includes your lunch.

£75 pp deposit to secure your space, with the final balance payable 28 days before event. The deposit can be paid by Paypal or bank transfer.
