Gentleman’s residence.

The sky was blue and the sun was shining – so the first shot in the bag, was the exterior of this large detached Victorian house…
Fiona and Conor O'Kane's detached Victorian Gentleman’s residence in Belfast.
.. which belonged to Fiona and Conor O’Kane – who are both are Barristers here in Belfast.

The Storyline:

Fiona and Conor bought the house approx 6 years ago and since then, have done a huge amount of work to it – they tackled quite a bit themselves – knocking down walls, decorating, etc, etc.

So with Stuart, who normally assists us out on Hotel shoots, helping out with lighting and that – Marie made a start inside…

.. by doing her thing, before we asked Fiona & Conor to strike a pose in the drawing room…

.. in front of the black marble fireplace – which it seems swung the sale for them when they first saw it.

Then from there, it was into the sitting room across the hall – where both Marie and Stuart both swung into action…

.. before I shot it two ways – with and without the fire lit…

.. to give the Editors a choice – incase they wanted to run with it in one of their spring or summer issues, instead of one of their winter or autumn issues smile

Anyway, it was then into the kitchen area at the back of the house…

.. which as you can see, was less traditional…

Huge house – but with Stuart helping us out here, we were up to the bedrooms…

.. just after lunch – and once again I was most impressed…

So just a quick note to say thanks to everyone here – and especially to Fiona & Conor for inviting us in and making us feel so welcome.
