HAVING OUR CAKE...AND EATING IT

For this week's Hello magazine we shot at home in Leicester with Fiona Cairns, who made the royal wedding cake for William and Kate. The sun shone gloriously all day, which makes a change when shooting in the UK even mid-summer, so we could photograph her and her two children, Hari, 22, and Tara, 18, inside her house and in her garden.

Starting at 9.30am, we completed around six shots before before lunch at around 1pm. Lunch AND cakes, made by Fiona, the highlight that the crew had all secretly been looking forward to.  Victoria sponge oozing wth jam and cream? Be rude not to...

Fiona wore stunning silks from Juliet Dunn, made in India, which is where her husband, Kishore Patel, comes from - and they have a home in Gujarat. She also wore designer labels including Isabel Marant, Missoni and Piazza Sempione from Doyles in Market Harborough.
