Empty shop becomes bridal store for TV drama
Published 30/06/14



AN empty shop in Henley town centre was brought back to life for a TV drama, writes David White.

Scenes for Valentine’s Kiss, a two-part romantic family saga, were shot in Market Place on Wednesday.

The former Revolution store, which closed in May last year, was turned into a wedding shop called Brides of Henley for the filming.

The scenes featured lead character Valentine, played by German actress Katja Weitzenböck, and her daughter Sophie, portrayed by Mr Selfridge actress Zoe Tapper, leaving the shop after choosing a wedding dress.

The show is being made for German TV but could also be shown on Channel 5 next year.


Producer Ron Purdie said: “It required a sort of market town or country town, which Henley fits very well. The Germans love the British country town and countryside.” First assistant director David Crabtree said German TV audiences liked quality and added: “Henley lends itself to that because it’s picturesque and very English. We’re very grateful for the reception we’ve received.”

The cast and crew used Henley Rugby Club as a base for doing make-up and costume changes.

The show has been shot over the last six weeks and other locations have included St Katharine’s Parmoor, near Freith, Ham House in Richmond Common, Denham in Buckinghamshire and the Bisham Abbey National Sports Centre for a tennis sequence.

It also stars Four Weddings and a Funeral star John Hannah, Doc Martin actress Caroline Catz and Sherlock actor Rupert Graves.

The show will be filmed in English and then dubbed in German. It is the latest in a series based on the novels of Rosamunde Pilcher.
