Maria & Paul's Engagement Photoshoot

Maria & Paul came for their engagement photoshoot yesterday, and I have a feeling their wedding is going to be a particular highlight this year at the beautiful Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire. I just love their elegant plans for the wedding day itself, with a late afternoon ceremony at the end of May and an intimate wedding of just 35 guests sharing one dinner table at the wedding breakfast. It wasn't easy selecting the very best of their engagement session as I loved a fair few, but here they are, with the emphasis being on beautiful, natural light to show a little of what's possible for their wedding day photographs - no flash or artificial lighting required, just a simple fast lens and reflector.

Clare & Stephen's Engagement Photoshoot

It was a beautiful 'spring-has-sprung' kind of a day when Clare and Stephen came for their engagement photoshoot, with the sun shining and the garden full of colour. I thought I'd make the most of the spring flowers, daffodils and tulips and have Clare and Stephen sit on a rug amongst them and get right down at flower level! They look great and resulted in happy photos not just because there was much giggling. I really am looking forward to their wedding at Stubton Hall in June. I met Clare and Stephen last year at Stubton Hall's first wedding fair and clicked straight away, and their wedding will undoubtedly be a classy affair. To Clare and Stephen: it was lovely to see you both again and also plan through your wedding timings together after the photoshoot, and I really hope you love your engagement photographs.

Holly & Olly's Engagement Photographs

I photographed Holly and Oliver's engagement photographs yesterday, ready for their wedding on 4th June at Stoke Rochford Hall. Spring has definitely sprung and there was a riot of yellow pompoms on the bushes, which made a great backdrop. The wind was kicking up though, so I worked super quickly and we warmed up indoors afterwards with a hot drink and talked all things weddings! I just love these engagement photoshoots; not only does the couple get to have a little practice run, but I get to know every one of my couples in advance, and both these factors mean better wedding pictures. And how often to we get to have a photoshoot with the one we love, just because?
