Yes – add a classic campervan, Christmas props, the most gorgeous setting and one incredible team of collaborators!

The sweetest photoshoot collaboration

This Christmas themed campervan photoshoot was based on a small group of people, teaming together. Weronika did an incredible job of selecting such a lovely team. We all got on so well – and the images are testimony to that! It was such a beautiful day.

I rocked up to Nonsuch Mansion in Pushka the cream campervan brimming with props. There I met Weronika – it was fabulous to put a face to the name I had been talking to on Instagram in the weeks leading up to the shoot. She is so lovely! She also came with lots of gorgeous props, including the festive floral decor by “The camomile flower design”, a beautifuil, hand crafted hot chocolate stand, Christmas tree and wrapped present props.

We were soon joined by the models, YouTube stars, Jamie and Megan – the most gorgeous, humble and happy couple, who also just happen to be rather nifty with playing the guitar and singing the sweetest of tunes. Serious Couple Goals – they just made you smile!!! (See their YouTube video about this Nonsuch mansion below).

They came with various wardrobe changes, to include the obligatory Christmas jumpers…. but it was Jen Hawkins, who really brought everything together with her classy hair and makeup skills.

But no…. I’ve not finished there…. the cherry on the top of this festive cake, was when multi-talented Weronika pulled out her HOME MADE BAKES – which I can personally vouch for. YUM!


The perfect VW Camper Xmas photoshoot setting

So, lucky stars were on our side, as it turned out to be a STUNNING day, with lots of sunshine.

We were set up, just in front of Nonsuch Mansion, opposite the cafe, with tall fir trees in the background. We were in full view to the public, and my goodness, we attracted lots of positive attention – people wanting to sample from the hot chocolate stall and enquiring whether they could participate. It’s funny, because it is often the case that when out and about in the campers, it sparks memories with passers by, and they come over to share those campervan tales from their past – I meet so many lovely people on this basis!

Anyway – back to the shoot – we set up our wicker sofa, which looked amazing with all the gift boxes and hot chocolate stand – and the festive florals and wreath really completed the look. 

Jamie and Megan sprinkled their magic on the scene – as a real couple, they were so natural – and it was interesting to see how they brought their YouTube media skills to the party! The impromptu songs sang so sweetly, accompanied by the acoustic guitar really brought the whole thing together… But there is MORE still to come! Round the back of the campervan, I had set up a little popup eco glitter bar – a service we are providing with our campervan photobooths. I was thrilled when Jamie and Megan stepped up to be volunteer glitter models!


Rewind to the beginning to see the sweet Mistletoe duet!

See below for the gorgeous Christmas Vlog by Jamie and Megan – rewind to the beginning of the clip for their Justin Bieber cover – such talent – and look at the love between those guys! My gosh!

I loved everything about it! You put loads of work into pulling this together – and the results are just adorable! I hope that we get the opportunity to team up together again soon, with one of our collection of campervans and beetle!
