PlayDNA at Soulton Hall

A perfect marriage? Duo Chequers and Tuxedo Personal DNA Portrait

Soulton Hall, a magnificent Elizabethan Manor House in the heart of Shropshire, formed the backdrop to one of our recent photoshoots. This historic setting provided a vivid contrast of old versus new, with the modern form of our unique DNA Portraits standing starkly against the ancient buildings that have been home to the Ashton family for nearly 500 years, with a history stretching back to the Bronze age.

A reminder perhaps of what an extraordinary family heirloom a PlayDNA Portrait makes; a piece of bespoke artwork that your descendants will treasure as much as you do, giving as it does a peek into your personal, and heritable, family characteristics.

The Walled Garden at Soulton Hall provided perfect context for this Oxford blue Sports DNA Portrait

The lush Shropshire countryside really sets off the majestic maroon colour of this Red Velvet Sports Portrait

Thank you to Tim Ashton and his family for inviting us into their beautiful home and allowing us to capture these gorgeous images – we love them!
