Here come the girls

They stood at ease in front of the majestic house for a group picture before becoming five belles of the ball for a gorgeous shoot on the red staircase and several of the rooms around the hall.

The make-over was the brainchild of Beth Jex of Francis Wain Jewellers and Jane Hampson, former PR for Houghton International, who wanted to organise something dramatic and eye-catching to promote the horse trials and the west Norfolk jeweller’s sponsorship of it. Jane explains: “The horse trials have been held here for seven years, every May, with the fantastic support of the estate, and it is one of the major fixtures on the international calendar with riders coming from all over the world to take part.

To promote this year’s event, Beth decided to get in touch with RAF Marham and the Light Dragoons’ Army base at Swanton Morley to see if there were any volunteers for a glittering makeover in the hall, and she was lucky enough to also be able to persuade Kim Slater, wife of former serviceman Duncan Slater, to join them on behalf of the Walking with the Wounded charity which has its roots in Norfolk too.
