BOOK YOUR LAVENDER SHOOT NOW BEFORE IT’S GONE FOR ANOTHER YEAR.
Up until the end of August, when the lavender loses its bloom, we will be doing weekday shoots at the Mayfield Lavender fields near Banstead. It’s an amazing location for a photo shoot, with its endless rows of purple flowers.
AN IDEAL LOCATION FOR: BABY, CHILDREN, FAMILY, PREGNANCY, COUPLES OR TEEN SHOOTS
The other week, I headed down to the fields with my own daughter and her best friend since birth for a little mini-shoot of our own. In September they are both going to different schools, so we’re trying to take as many photos of them together as we can to create a keepsake book for them.
Making all of our hearts melt and fanning speculation of a future marriage, they spontaneously assumed this pose. Hilarious.
BOOKING YOUR SHOOT
To book, call the studio on 0207 042 9777 or email us.
MAKE A DAY OF IT
Aside from our shoot, there is plenty to do at Mayfield. We rewarded the children for good behaviour with a tractor ride (£2 per rider) around the field, followed by ice cream. There is plenty of space to spread out a blanket if you want to bring your own picnic; alternatively, there is also food available there, including a yummy hog roast. And I highly recommend the lemonade with lavender. Not great for your teeth, but it’s tasty.
HOW TO GET THERE
Parking is available onsite. There is a £1 fee for entry, so make sure to bring some coins. Post code for Sat Nav is SM7 3BE. It is only about 20 minutes from Wimbledon by car.
You can also come by train. Plan your journey on Google Maps or Routeplanner as there are plenty of stations near the fields.
Prebook a taxi to collect you at the station by calling either:
Cheam Cars on 020 8642 6400.
Banstead Taxi on 01737 390 082
WHAT TO WEAR
There are certain colours that look great with the purple of the lavender field.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO PHOTOGRAPHING YOU AT THE FIELD.
