For our first Cheshire SWAGS collaboration event we combined the talents of Abby Marshall (Abby Victoria - Make-up) and Tracey Howley (Salon 16 - Hair) with the beauty of gorgeous gowns by Sara Jones (The Bridal Lounge - Dresses and Accessories), in the fabulous venue The Saracens Head in Stockton Heath, to create an opportunity for three young models, Meg Bradley, Georgia Willis and Lucie Farrington to get some shoot experience and for a talented young photographer Evie Grace to do her thing! The event was coordinated by Rachel Farrington-Allen and I, Lara Oakes from Festival Events & Planning Limited.

The Saracens Head
And finally a massive amount of thanks needs to go to The Saracens Head for not only hosting us but for looking after us so well. We absolutely could not have achieved what we achieved without them allowing us to do what we needed. The renovations are exquisite and their private dining room upstairs is going to ensure that the place is packed night after night. Joanna and her team talked to us at length about their plans to develop this historical gem for the future. We cannot wait to see what happens here next! Festival HQ loves this venue.
