Shuttercraft at the Ufford Crown, Suffolk
Shuttercraft is run by husband and wife team Niall and Lyndsay Darke. Lyndsay asked me if I would come and photograph their bespoke wooden shutters that they have made and installed in The Ufford Crown, Suffolk.
Lyndsay informed me that they needed professional photographs for their website, with the view to continually add more images to their online gallery. They are also going to use the photographs for promotional and advertising needs and throughout social media.
The shutters at The Ufford Crown have been lovingly installed, allowing pools of light into the dark green rooms creating a cosy ambience that the owners, Max and Polly Durrant, are so clearly aiming towards for their diners. The whole decor of the pub is set off beautifully by these well-appointed shutters and they provide an added touch of luxury that can often be overseen. These Shutters are definitely a premium, made-to-measure product that is built to last and endure, even in an increasingly busy pub and restaurant. As the photo shoot progressed I was continually opening and closing them to allow for the correct levels of light to come through and it was immediately obvious upon moving them that they were made to a very high standard. It was important that the photographs focused on the emphasis to the subdued lighting and intimate atmosphere that has partly been created by these magnificent shutters, showing them in their element.
If you are looking for some high-quality shutters tailored to your specifications, from a solid, local business that really does care about their customers I can thoroughly recommend the workmanship of Shuttercraft, Suffolk.
I am also looking forward to going back to the Ufford Crown (this time as a customer)! I was given such a warm welcome from Max and Polly who could not have been more hospitable despite me being there to work on behalf of another company. This friendly, family run pub and restaurant in the charming village of Ufford, Suffolk was reopened back in April 2011 and the owners have done a magnificent job in renovating it a high standard whilst offering an exciting menu of local home cooked fare.
