Lucy Toms Photography
Lucy started her working life in TV & Commercials, but back in 2006, she took a step aside to do a course in Photojournalism at the LCC in London, before heading off to New York to study Documentary Photography. Shortly after, she was asked to photograph a friend’s wedding in Ibiza. From there she never looked back and now photographs anything from portraits, weddings, events, corporate studies etc.
One of the many testimonials from her website reads:
‘She has a wonderful calm, but fun personality too, which everybody instantly warmed to. She is excellent at capturing reportage style photography, where the photographer really tells a story through the images. She worked SO hard, my parents couldn’t believe how much energy and enthusiasm she had right up until the very end of the night, which meant that we got so many brilliant shots’

TIptree Farm - Wilkin & Sons LTD
The first ‘Tiptree’ conserves were made in 1885 on the Tiptree estate and are still made here to this day. Fruit crops include strawberries, loganberries, mulberries and damsons to name but a few. Their signature fruit is the Little Scarlet strawberry, a tiny wild variety, originally brought to the UK by the Wilkin family in the early 1900's. They believe that they are unique in the world in growing this difficult crop, but it is worth it for the quality of conserve it provides.
They received our first Royal Warrant from George V in 1911 and remain Royal Warrant holders as purveyors of 'Tiptree' products to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
‘Tiptree’ products can now be found in over seventy countries, on luxury cruise liners, in five star hotels and on top airlines.

Reliquum Plum is a fruit spirit made from juicy Lizzie Plums grown on a family farm and allowed to naturally ripen on the trees for the fullest flavour, then blended with London Dry Gin and allowed to gently mature.
Every year tonnes of fruit are wasted around the country because it’s too big, too small or too ugly to be sold. Instead of letting the unwanted fruit from their own farm be wasted or processed off our farm, they decided to turn it into something delicious. Reliquum means ‘ALL THAT REMAINS’.
Taste: Bright and sharp with an almond after-taste.
Appearance: A glorious warm clear pink from the natural colour of the plums.
Serving: Delicious drunk on its own over ice or with a splash of soda or tonic water; or add a drop of Reliquum to English Sparkling wine to make a British alternative to a Kir Royale.
