Your photoshoot at Ragley
The Ragley Estate possesses a multitude of spectacular man-made and natural features to compliment the theme and styling of your photoshoot. From the grand and gothic staircase that wraps the North Hall, to the serene lakeside framed by surrounding woodland. Whether it be for an ethereal fashion shoot in the al fresco settings of the gardens or for a high-end jewellery campaign complimented by the opulent décor of a period state room, the varying backdrops hold no limits when it comes to the creative process.
Our state rooms, can be populated with furniture or left as a blank canvas space ready to be brought to life with models, props and floral installations. The natural settings of the estate encompass Capability Brown Parkland, woodland, Marnock-designed Rose Gardens, a lake, small streams, grass tennis court, farmland and seasonal gardens. The Ragley Estate also has a working Stable Yard featuring antique carriage collections.
Our Bridal Preparation Lounge, can easily be converted into a dressing room for models. The natural light that falls in the room, as well as the vanity mirrors and tables mean that this is a perfect set-up for hair and make-up artists to work their magic. Two railed open wardrobes are also within the space to accommodate the wardrobe team.
In the past Ragley has hosted a variety of portfolio building workshops for the likes of Walter’s Wardrobe and The Photoshoot Club. A full day’s hire gives opportunity for groups to let their creative juices flow by bringing in models, stylists and props, whilst working with varying backdrops and scenery, with the aim of developing their portfolios, learning new skills and gaining confidence.
