In the Press

The Keeper and the Dell has enjoyed being featured in a few magazines & photoshoots over the last few months. These have included a piece by Norfolk Brides for the Norfolk On My Mind magazine, and was a wonderful collaboration of local talents, including Vintage Deli, florist Jo Rodwell and photographer, Tatum Reid, amongst others. The beautiful Ginger Koneko was the model for the day. Here are a few photos from that lovely day back in Spring. I particularly love the beautiful headpieces made by Bohemian Love Story.

Another beautiful photoshoot that we had here was just before Christmas with the wonderfully talented Argent and Sable, creators of eclectic and nostalgic signs using reclaimed materials and authentic fairground cabochon lighting. We have loved their work since seeing it at Bo Nanafana a few years back so we were delighted when they were commissioned for a wedding here in the Summer. Since then we had an exhibition of their work here for a private event at The Keeper and the Dell which looked absoutely beautiful.  They then approached us as they had been asked by Iceni magazine for a feature. They made not only a beautiful double page spread but also the front cover.  Each sign is hand painted and individually made in the Argent and Sable workshop ~ it is such a delight to see all this great talent coming out of Norfolk. 

Supporting and enjoying the creative energy of other like minded local businesses is very important to us and something we really enjoy ~ so if you are a local independent company, looking for a rustic, unusual location for an interesting collaboration or for your own photoshoot ~ get in touch, we'd love to hear from you.
