What a treat it was to do a music video in this stunning location!

When I first discovered this place I absolutely loved the idea and symbolism of a church created and built out of living trees. Personally, I feel most connected to God when I am in nature so the appeal of this beautiful garden was very real for me. Soon after the idea was born to film the song 'What Child is This' from my album Divine with Harpist Marg Harper who happened to know the owner.
The first day we had planned for filming was a false start because of rain and cloud so I found myself with half my makeup done at 4am in the morning feeding my little man and trying to go back to sleep unsuccessfully.
The next day however couldn't have been better. We arrived bright and early to catch the morning sun and everyone agreed starting the day at 3.30am was 100% worth it.
