I recently had the pleasure of meeting up with one of my December wedding couples, Vicky & Haydn, at one of my favourite spots, Shugborough Hall.  The day was cold and crisp, so we were all hopped up in warm clothing.  The sun did make an appearance on occasion, which really makes the grounds of the estate lovely and warm in the sunny glow.  The wedding is at The Ashes and is only now a few short weeks away … time really does fly !  See you soon guys !!

A few faves from the shoot …

Carol and Peter are both doctors, working all hours and actually spending a lot of time apart with their conflicting schedules … so it came as no surprise to any of us that finding a suitable time to get together for an engagement session was so tough … we finally got together a couple of weeks before the wedding, so we incorporated the wedding pre meeting with a few shots of them and their beautiful little doggie.  While we were having a nice cuppa at the cafe, Carol spotted a heart in her tea !

I’m a little behind on blogging, so the wedding will be the next post … a few from the shoot …

Susan and Tarv are getting married in Dundee in October, actually over the Halloween weekend … additionally they are having a HUGE Indian party in November, so I’m getting to spend quite a bit of time with them.  It’s truly a family affair this year, as I also covered Susan’s sister Alison’s engagement shoot and wedding recently … I’m expecting a Christmas invitation, now that I’m part of the family LOL

I met up with Susan and Tarv at the historic Shugborough Hall for their shoot, an absolutely stunning location and just right for photos, with gorgeous grounds and buildings, a perfect backdrop.  Tarv even practised his Magnum look, or was it Blue Steel … I’ll let you decide haha

A few from the shoot … see you soon guys !

I met up with Helen & Nigel at one of their favourite haunts, Dorothy Clive Gardens, a beautiful little spot not far from home, with a coffee shop that sells the most yummy cakes ! We were meeting to discuss the final arrangements for their wedding (last Tuesday, actually) but managed to squeeze in some shooting too. I was delighted to hear about the plans including a 50’s inspired wedding dress, a Morgan and a Maserati … the wedding will be blogged soon, but in the meantime, here are a few from their engagement session.

It’s been a busy few weeks as you can imagine, with both weddings and engagement sessions … I recently met up with Alison and Dave who are getting married this weekend in Nuneaton before heading to the Ramada for their reception. I am shooting Alison’s sister’s wedding (2 part) later this year, so I think by the end of the year I will feel like a long lost relative LOL

We headed over to Trentham Gardens for the shoot … it was a particularly hot, sunny day and so while Dave queued for us to get in, Alison and I grabbed some ice creams … yum !

A few from the shoot … see you this weekend !

Karen and Matt had their engagement session at home in their beautiful garden … I have to say I was a little envious of their obvious passion for gardening (I’m rubbish LOL) … they are also a shy couple and so this was preferred to going somewhere with lots of people around. They are getting married this weekend at Somerford Hall, a stunning venue, so fingers crossed the weather plays ball for us too !

My final engagement session from last weekend was actually up in Gloucestershire, at Cowley Manor, where Andrew had proposed to Rosie. It is a stunning venue with glorious grounds, beautiful vistas, a couple of lakes and a waterall (Andrew proposed at the top of this … how romantic). As with all my brides I was again admiring Rosie’s ring and asked Andrew if he had it made … the reply has me chuckling to this day … “oh no, it’s just a Tiffany’s ring!” LOL. Andrew and Rosie are getting married in August at Alrewas Hayes, another of my fave venues … with a couple of hundred guests it should be a good blast !

A few from the shoot … as always, I hope you enjoy them …
