Behind the scenes with Marianne Slater of Frances + Rose

Marianne tells us about the ideas and inspiration behind her recent shoot at The Mowbray with a truly wonderful line up.

“The idea of the shoot came about from simply wanting to bring together the best of the best.

Rather than working to a strict 'theme' per-say, I just wanted every element of the day to exude quality and beauty, right down to the finest detail. I asked all contributing suppliers to be themselves, be authentic and give me their very best work, and that's what they did!

The flowers are the best of the season, the dresses the most inspired in the collection. The photographer has the most artistic eye and the make up artist made our incredible model completely flawless whilst bringing her creative flare.

The Mowbray prides itself on working with the very best producers and suppliers. They have built a reputation as experts in exquisite detail and delivering total luxury. They did not disappoint. With stunning tableware and a Vicky Sponge of dreams from head chef, Emma Tophill-Reed. Brought together and styled by myself, a lover of seasons and quality, an enthusiast of natural beauty, who strives to capture love and light.”
