In this months WI Life you will find my shoot with celebrity chef and Great British Bake Off judge, Mary Berry. Since the first series of GBBO I have been an avid watcher and admirer of both judges and contestants. I couldn’t imagine anything more stressful than baking on TV, particularly as it is such an unforgiving discipline. Should you get a measurement or temperature fractionally wrong, the whole dish can go kaput! In my opinion the show (along with the WI) appears to have greatly improved the popularity of baking and the jovial, often innuendo filled, banter between Mary and her fellow judge Paul Hollywood has certainly aided the entertainment.

Having not much to work with in a plain white studio, I called in all the aprons I could from various friends and acquaintances so that I could create a colourful stylists rail of aprons. Unfortunately they were all quite wild but Mary settled upon my friend Rachels turquoise floral number to pose with so I was appreciative to her of the last minute dash over with it. Thanks Rach!
