We met with Catherine & James for their engagement shoot in Richmond Surrey, just a stone's throw away from the couple's house. We had originally planned to go to Marble Hill Park, which is where James proposed to Catherine; a beautiful park by the river, with no less than four stately homes. But with heavy showers due on the day of the shoot Catherine suggested a change of plan, to meet at Petersham Nurseries a favourite spot of Catherine & James.
With grey skies overhead and the odd roll of thunder I think we made the right decision; we could dash for cover in the greenhouses, each decorated with beautiful rustic gifts and interiors. With hand crafted homeware, plants & antiques beautifully displayed, it made for a unique setting. We met in the Tea House, where they sell a delicious range of cakes, seasonal and fresh produce, to catch up on Catherine & James' wedding plans before taking a wander around the nurseries.
We are looking forward to Catherine & James' wedding at the Larmer Tree Gardens later this Summer.
