Charlie & Andy love all things magical and wanted an Autumnal feel for their engagement session. Charlie & Andy also love animals, so with New Forest ponies wandering around the New Forest seemed like the perfect setting.
Charlie made a beautiful Autumnal bouquet with seasonal flowers and handmade her floral crown and they even hired a 1940's vintage bicycle for the day.
Charlie & Andy donned their wooly jumpers and boots and braved the cold air, whilst we found some pretty spots in the woods. The sun was perfect that day, shining through the pine trees and golden bracken.
We are very much looking forward to Charlie & Andy's whimsical woodland wedding at Kingston Country Courtyard in May.
We met Amy & Chris at their beautifully renovated hill top home in Bradford-on-Avon, not far from the city of Bath. We managed to dodge the showers and the grey skies cleared just in time for their engagement session.
Chris was a perfect tour guide, showing us Amy & his favourite spots, we wandered past grand Georgian buildings, went down to the river Avon, passed an old Saxon church and on to a 14th century Tythe Barn. The leaves were changing colour and the winter sun was low. We really enjoyed finding out more about Amy & Chris' wedding plans. They are getting married at a very special venue in Bath, The Roman Baths & are then partying in The Pump Rooms next door.
We are looking forward to meeting Amy's family from Canada and all their friends & family who will be sharing Amy & Chris' celebrations early next year!
Lucy grew up in West Dorset and her family home has far reaching views to the sea. Eype beach is a favourite spot of Lucy & Elliot and despite the fog we ventured along the pebble beach towards the many rock pools below golden cliffs. This part of the Jurassic Coast is rugged and made for some dramatic photos of this lovely couple, who married earlier this month at a village church with a marquee in Lucy's parents garden. Their wedding was such fun and it will be hitting our blog soon!
Nikki & Sven love the beach. Sven proposed to Nikki by Harry Rocks and so Studland seemed like the perfect spot for their pre wedding engagement session.
We took a stroll along the beach, explored the beach huts and even took a dip in the sea, which was surprisingly warm. It was a perfect late Summer's evening and the light was soft.
These two tied the knot earlier this month at Harry Warren House so keep an eye out for their beautiful seaside inspired wedding coming soon!
We met up with Callie & Graham at one of their favourite climbing spots along the Dorset coast in the Isle of Purbeck.
It was a perfect Summer's evening and we met over a glass of ale at the local before heading off to the sea, across a field of cows, who much to Callie & my relief didn't seem at all bothered by us...phew!
There were some impressive caves along the cliffs and Graham pointed out his favourite climbing spots, it looks like a lot of fun & the views from up on the cliffs must be even more spectacular then from the coastal path.
The sea was deep blue and the sun was soft, which made for some pretty images of these two in a place that is special to them. We are very much looking forward to when these two tie the knot later this year. Callie has been busy making a thousand origami cranes for the day, a Japanese tradition which brings good luck and as Callie told me the patience you need for married life; I can't wait to see them!
