Adventures in Wonderland

Christian Dior were at the Lodge at Doonbeg in County Clare this week, so we were asked to come along and cover the event – which was being held in their marquee…

.. and I have got to say it looked amazing…

.. for such a business event.

Anyway, the following day they set-up for the ‘Adventures in Wonderland’ party…

.. so from my point of view it was simply a case of setting up the camera and waiting to see what would un-fold…

So there you have it, the marquee being used in a very different way by Christian Dior – to how we shot it before…
