Celebrate the festive season alongside your favourite furry friend with a heart-warming Christmas keepsake.
2020 has been a challenging year for many, with lives altered and changes made to accommodate our new reality. But alongside this challenge, reflection has inspired hope too. Our connection to our community has deepened and together we have rallied to provide support for those most in need. While we understand here at Watergardens that Christmas may look a little different this year, we hope you’ll join us to celebrate what makes us all strong. Finding joy in everyday moments, rekindling our favourite family traditions and seeking out simple pleasures wrapped up with plenty of cheeky festive cheer.
Pets have been a blessing for many in 2020, with adoption rates surging across the country during lock-down, so why not celebrate the festive season alongside your favourite furry friend with a heart-warming Christmas keepsake. The ever-popular Pet Photos are making a welcome return at Watergardens from 21 November until 16 December, with a few small modifications to ensure the health and safety of our pets, shoppers, staff and Santa.
Dressed in your very best Christmas ensembles (we love a good matching pet/owner outfit!), take a seat next to Santa (within a safe 1.5m distance of course) and let your pet get their Christmas wish lists ticked off too.
Our community’s wellbeing is paramount, so there will be sanitising stations within the Pet Photos set, while cleaning ambassadors will also be on hand to provide guidance on physical distancing protocols.
Online bookings are essential, so be sure to reserve your spot to avoid missing out on capturing this special Christmas moment with your beloved four-legged companion.
And while every effort will be made to welcome pets both great and small, pet photography is limited to dogs, cats and some small animals only.
To ensure a speedy booking, please download, print off and fill out our terms & conditions, ready before your booking!
Our commitment to a safe Christmas
Our commitment to the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff and retailers is our primary priority, so we will continue to implement and maintain a number of precautionary measures to help keep our community safe this Christmas.
While our team focuses on protecting the safety and wellbeing of our community, we need you to play your part as well. Let’s work together to ensure we each practise safe social distancing during your visit to the Centre and keep a minimum of 1.5 metres between yourself and others at all times. It’s also important that we all maintain a high level of personal hygiene, and we encourage our customers to take advantage of the hand sanitisation stations located throughout the Centre. Please also wash your hands regularly, cover your coughs or sneezes with your elbow, and most importantly, stay at home if you feel unwell.
