Steph's garden-for-hire is as pretty as a picture
Steph Brown has received endless pleasure from her stunning four-and-a-half acre garden and now she’s decided it’s time to share it with others by hiring it out for events, photo shoots and filming.
With hidden treasures around every corner, Steph and husband Ian have spent the past year re-designing Eagle
Gardens, at their home in Mill Gate, Whaplode, creating a variety of versatile themed areas, with plenty of scope for different backdrops for promotional brochures, catalogues and ad campaigns.
Features of the mature English-style gardens include a children’s secret fairy garden, a colourful Moroccan patio, wooden sculptures, an antique wrought iron wedding arch and a mini woodland walk.
The garden is home to an abundance of wildlife, including a large variety of birds, muntjac deer, foxes, bats, insects and butterflies as well as 62 different varieties of tree.
“It’s a beautiful garden, which I have always taken a great deal of pleasure from and I just thought it was time we shared that with others”,͟ says Steph.
“With so many different areas and themes it really can provide the perfect backdrop for all manner of film and photo shoots.
The idea for hiring out Eagle Gardens came about after Steph was looking for a new business venture.
A back injury forced her to close the cattery she ran on site and a photographer who visited her home to take some interior shots for a separate project suggested her garden would be suitable for hiring for shoots and events.
“It’s early days yet, but we’ve already hosted two weddings which went very well and now it’s all about getting our name out there and letting people know we’re here.͟”
Eagle Gardens is available for night and day photo shoots. For more information about its facilities and hire prices, visit www.eaglegardens.co.uk
