About the shoot
When four businesses got together on this vintage fashion shoot everything was going to plan until the heavens opened. Back at corina corina a customer in the shop heard of their dilemma. Events organiser Karen Pattison made a few phone calls and the photoshoot was completed after hours at Warwick Castle. Corina corinas owner, Ella Myles, says: Out of hours, with time pressures, amidst a staff training session, and admittedly rather giddy with excitement at the amazing opportunity theyd been given, the shoot was finished in record time and Im sure youll agree the resulting photos are spectacular.
