The Abbey

A stone’s throw away from the St Albans Cathedral, The Abbey offers lunch and dinner in such a beautiful and relaxed setting.  Their menus change with the seasons and the food and cocktails are not only delicious but stunning to look at and photograph too – a real dream to photograph! 

The Brief:

Everything here is made from scratch; even the cocktails contain syrup that is all homemade. Equally the décor stands out with it’s own unique style, with a lot of attention to detail.  The Abbey wanted a set of images that would reflect this in all three areas, images that would make people think they just had to go there or they’d be missing out!  And whilst the cocktails were being made, I took some cheeky action shots just to add a bit of human element and movement to the images.  Must say, it really is a beautiful restaurant to work in and it gives me great pleasure to see the images being used on their website and social media.

Working with Rebecca was nothing short of an absolute pleasure. Not only is she an extremely good photographer, but she also used to be a chef, which meant that when shooting our summer menu, her knowledge was priceless. And on top of that she is a lovely person. The full package in my opinion!
