Brudenell Hotel – Suffolk Food Photography
Suffolk Food Photography doesn’t get much better than this! Nestled away at the quiet end of the seafront in the quaint Suffolk seaside town Aldeburgh is the Brudenell Hotel. It’s literally a stone throw of a drive from London. Leave the bustling capital and in under two hours, you’re “Everything seems so much more laid back and even the stylish food photography that we shot at the Brudenell has an almost leisurely appearance as the live ingredients were assembled on nickel platters, stripping the food back to showcase its local heritage and a provenance. Fresh and ethically-sourced fish is also one of the core values of the Brudenell’s own Seafood and Grill restaurant, with a menu packed with fresh local fish, seafood and free-range meats prepared by a creative team of chefs. Shooting Suffolk Food Photography for an award-winning fish restaurant is genuinely a pleasure. Who wouldn’t want to photograph artwork on a plate?
For this particular Suffolk Food Photography shoot, the Banc Creative Team decided to adopt the most natural approach possible, shooting imagery using only natural lighting and dispensing with any artificial distractions. It was an important factor in retaining many of the deconstructed dishes and even the backdrop to the images was improvised using a wide window ledge overlooking the ocean. The paint had a hint of distress to it, which added a massive amount of character to the dishes. Blanc Creative have built a steadily increasing reputation for their Norfolk Food Photography and to break into Suffolk Food Photography with such a prestigious location is wonderful.
The 44-room luxury 4* hotel has been a fixture of the front since the 1880s, and despite having been renovated in 2010 it retains its Victorian charm, partly thanks to the huge bay windows in the bedrooms. Our deluxe room has a huge double bed and a sofa facing the bay window framing the sea view, while the bathroom has a free-standing bath and separate shower, typical of Aldeburgh’s unique brand of quaint luxury. There are a few thoughtful touches too, such as two big glass bottles of water – still and sparkling – refilled each morning and a basket full of books about the local area.
Fresh and ethically-sourced fish is also one of the core values of the Brudenell’s own Seafood and Grill restaurant, with a menu packed with fresh local fish, seafood and free-range meats prepared head chef Tyler Torrance. If you fancy something a bit different, the Brudenell’s sister hotel The White Lion – just a 15-minute walk along the beautiful seafront – also boasts a fantastic restaurant, the Brasserie Bleue. The brasserie has a more back to basics approach, with the relaxed feel of a very good gastropub.
