I met Matt & Fiona last week for their pre wedding shoot with their lively dog Buster in Westonbirt Arboretum. A very hot day, so it was lovely to walk amoung the trees. They were a bit nervous & not looking forward to having their photo taken, but after a short while we had a great time & they love the pictures…it defintely makes a huge difference to both me & my clients when we do the complimentary pre wedding shoot before the wedding. Buster had fun too!
I met Ross & Charlotte back in March over a coffee to go through the final details of the wedding, and we did a Pre Wedding shoot in Oversly Woods just outside Alcester. They love these woods, and it was a cold but beautifully sunny day, perfect for photos, and to show them how easy it will be on the day!
I have been severely lacking in my blogging of late, so now intend to catch up. It’s not that I haven’t been photographing, just lazy blogging about it! So here we have the lovely Kirsten & Mark’s pre wedding shoot which we did back in March, dodging huge downpours, in Stratford upon Avon along the river. Really looking forward to their wedding at the end of May at The Welcombe Hotel in Stratford, which will be nice to return to.
Katrina & Mark are getting married in June at the Four Pillar’s Hotel in Witney – Minster Lovell Ruins are nearby so we thought we’d have a little practice there before the wedding day when we hope to go back to do some more. It’s a great place for photos, so many beautiful little places, and we made friends with a donkey as well!
Jennie & Ross are getting married at the fabulous Ellenborough Park Hotel in Cheltenham in May. We met in Lower Slaughter for their pre wedding shoot which I do with most of my clients – they’re getting a guest book made using some of the photos which looks great, and is also a really important practice & getting to know each other session (over a cup of coffee as well of course…)
Beth & Jamie are getting married at The Pittville Pumprooms in Cheltenham in the summer, followed by a garden party at Beth’s parents afterwards in the Forest of Dean, so it was great to be able to meet them there & do a pre wedding shoot in the Forest. Despite being Spring, it was a freezing cold day, but still got some great fun shots.
Adam & Ali are getting married in Devon later this year and we thought it would be fun to do a seaside pre wedding shoot near the venue, so we went to the beautiful Budleigh Salterton. Gorgeous little place, lovely sunny weather, but was freezing!! Had great fun, and looked around their venue: Mudifords Court in Cullompton – so really excited about photographing that later this year.
Well as these pictures prove, the weather hasn’t been all bad this summer (it has been pretty bad though…) – we were very lucky to have this gorgeous day for our pre wedding shoot on Dovers Hill, Chipping Campden in Gloucestershire. This is a really important part of my packages, as it really helps to build up a rapport with my wedding clients, which makes it so much easier on the Big Day. Had lots of fun with Antony & Aleksandra up on that big hill, as you can see from the silly jumping!
Carolyn & Ant (well, mainly Carolyn) wouldn’t stop jumping & running around when we did their pre wedding shoot in the beautiful Frampton on Severn. We had an amazing evening, the light was perfect for this sort of thing. Looking forward to their wedding at the Wool Barn in Frampton.
It absolutely TIPPED down when we did Adam & Emma’s pre wedding shoot, but they are tough outdoor types and didn’t bat an eyelid! It was actually really fun despite being drenched at the end! I know their wedding is going to be great fun at the new Hyde Barn in Stow-on-the-Wold in the Cotswolds.
