Nostalgic Christmas Lunch | Styled Shoot

Can you believe it’s that time of the year again? I am so happy to  share this nostalgic Christmas session with you all.

When Jana from MooiGoed approached me to do this shoot, I felt so incredibly honoured. She had managed to gather some of Newcastle’s most talented creatives to collaborate and share their work for this styled session.

For our Summer garden Christmas shoot, we used natural textures and elements with hints of lace and sweet-smelling, delicate flowers to bring the whole look together in a soft and romantic tablescape.

Koot, from Posh Nosh prepared a delicious meal for the occasion with the most flavoursome food served to the table.

The menu for the lunch included a starter made of pistachio biscuits with camembert brûlée, Rooibos infused gingerbeer gammon with green beans and sticky roast potatoes and a roast vegetable and ricotta quiche. To top it off, dessert was waffles served with an orange Cointreau and fresh cream and cherries.  DELICIOUS!
