Thinking back I think it was one of the last days of nice weather that we’d been having. It was the start of May and although a little breezy it still felt warm without a chill. It was the engagement shoot of Andrew & Kelly and their two adorable little boys at Wollaton Hall & Gardens in Nottingham. They marry next month and I’m so very excited to be there with them capturing it all as it happens!!!
See you soon!!! It’s going to be a beautiful day for you all, Becky xx
We’re very excited to have been invited to exhibit at the Nottingham Vintage Chic Wedding Fair on
SUNDAY 26 JUNE 2011
12 – 5PM
East Bridgford Hill Nottingham
We’ve recently been featured on the beautiful Bridal Musings blog, with our shoot of Katie and her horses, plus her beautiful wedding dress, in celebration on her 5th wedding anniversary.
This was a very special shoot, not just for Katie but for me also. Katie emailed me a couple of months back, as she’d seen our Love the Dress and Equestrian lifestyle features and wanted to combine the two. Obviously I was very excited about this too and we booked a date in May with the hope that the weather would be kind to us. It was a beautiful day and we had a fabulous afternoon! Tequilla was very spooked by the noise of Katie’s dress, but her faithful childhood pony ‘Squirrel’ was more than happy for her to jump on his back.
Big thanks to wedding and events planner Lauren of Blue TwentyOne for her support in styling and general brilliance in managing the horses for me, so that I could concentrate on the shoot.
A vintage styled rosette worn by Squirrel, created especially for us by the fabulous Rachel of Tattered Rose.
We finished in the barn, with just after this shot Katie’s mum apearing with Pimms!
Not long now!!! Soon Charlotte and Andy will be celebrating their weddingh day at the beautiful Woodborough Hall in Nottingham. I went to meet them for coffee on the terrace straight after the wedding of William and Kate last month, after much conversation about the royal couples wedding we chatted excitedly about their wedding day plans too!!
I love engagement shoots, and what I love SO very much, is peering out on the world through my lens and seeing the sparkle that people have for one another.
We look forward to seeing you very both very soon!!! xxx
Soon to be married is the lovely Sarah and John, we met a little while back for their engagemnt shoot at Bestwood Lodge in Nottingham which is to be their wedding venue. After chatting over coffee and biscuits about their final timings for the day, we had a walk around the grounds and captured some ‘before the big day’ images.
Sarah & John we wish you all the happiness on your wedding day – we can’t wait to see you both!!!
Neil & Becky xx
