Yugen Coffee House

A few months ago we ( Indever ) were contacted by Sono and Gavin who were looking for help to create a website for their new Coffee shop in Bangor.

They also wanted professional photos to help bring their brand to life and to give people a real look at what they had to offer. I love food photography so I couldn’t wait to get started….

Here are just a few of my favourite shots from the photography shoot.

They have a variety of items on offer and they’re all healthy and tasty!

They’re also the only coffee shop in North Wales who use Allpress speciality coffee beans, which come from all around the globe.

As well as serving coffee, they also have specialty loose leaf teas from round the globe to allow you to unwind and relax, me and John tried some and it’s absoloutly gorgeous <3

Gavin, the cofounder of Yugen Coffee House has always been passionate about coffee for as long as he can remember.

And until now had been making coffee as a hobby and had no intentions of opening up his own coffee house. But after months of hard work their vision finally came to life at the opening ceremony on Sunday.

We were honoured to be invited to celebrate this special moment and we also bumped into Judith Bond from Judith Bond Cakes, who supplied the cupcakes for the event.

It was a very successful opening and we highly recommend you pay them a visit if you are ever in Bangor.

Conwy Food And Drink Celebration At Bodnant Welsh Food Centre

November is Conwy business month and to kick off the celebration of local businesses their first event was in celebration of Conwy food and drink vendors.

The event was set up in the fantastic setting of Bodnant Welsh Food Centre and all local food producers were welcome guests.

I was asked by the council to come and photograph the event and of course I wasn’t going to say no because (A) I love food and (B) I always want to support and capture our community spirit.

The event provided the opportunity to highlight, showcase, and celebrate Conwy Food and Drink, but it was also an opportunity for producers to engage, and network with industry leaders.

As you walked in you were greeted by the site of tables filled with delicious foods by local produce companies. There was a huge selection of cheese, chocolate, vegetables and much more by local well-known producers such as Castell Cheese, Llaeith and Edwards of Conwy.

As you can see there were many well-known producers at the event and it was great to see them all in one room, celebrating each others success and mingling.

The popular restaurant chain Dylan’s were also showcasing some of their sauces and the producers of Grandma’s cupboard beverages were also in attendance.

All guests were welcomed with a glass of wine and encouraged to have a look at the tables, whist they waited for their meal in the main dining area.

There were 3 guest speakers at the event from the local hospitality sector and they spoke about the importance of engaging with the food and drink sector to advance your business and identify the support available.

Afterwards the guests were treated to a 3 course award-winning meal, using ingredients from local suppliers such as Baravelli’s chocolate for the dessert.

Once the meal was finished some people stayed and networked for the remainder of the evening.

I had a great time being part of and photographing such a fab event and I am looking forward to see what else Conwy business month has to offer.
