Yesterday we had the ‘very‘ nice people from Littlewoods Catalogue using our house for a Photography Shoot. They arrived en masse. We were amazed by the amount people who were involved in the shoot, at one point I’m sure we had around 25 people in and around the house!! There was the Director, photographer, photographers assistant,  trainee photographers assistant, art director, room stylist, graphic designer, a lady to iron the clothes for the models, four child models with parents/guardians, one adult model, makeup artist and six furniture removal men and a few more I’m sure I’ve forgotten about!

It seemed absolute chaos to us, but they knew exactly what they were doing. Two huge transit vans deposited endless amounts of furniture into our front garden, couches, beds, wardrobes, dinning table and chairs and even an 8ft Christmas tree.

We had registered the house with a company called UK Locations who are a team of Location Managers that specialise in sourcing and managing shoots for film, TV, commercials, still photographic shoots, pop promos, and corporate events.
