It was great to catch up with Abby and Doug for their engagement shoot – a brilliant couple plus their dog, Zack who we fell in love with straight away! Shaw Forest Park was a perfect choice for the shoot…….well known to Abby, Doug and Zack and a new discovery for us! The park is part of the 40-hectare Great Western Community Forest and Swindon’s only urban forest – with large open spaces as well, we felt spoilt for choice! We had a fabulous morning, loads of fun and it was great to hear all about Abby and Doug’s exciting wedding plans for Easter weekend 2018.
…. so, down to the thriving artistic community that is Deptford for a pre-wedding photography shoot and getting-to-know-you session with illustrators Nana and John on their home territory.
A glorious mix of old and new – Victorian terraces rubbing shoulders with glass clad modernity and cottages with palaces, all set along the banks of the Thames.
Completely spoilt for choice of backgrounds for this engagement shoot, from this Patricio Forrester ‘His and Hers’ mural to the brickwork of the railway viaducts that crisscross this part of South London…
and on to ‘Love over Gold’ (how appropriate is that?) hidden in a back street on the way to Deptford Creek (Dire Straits performed their first gig in the Crossfields Estate just opposite the mural).
A brief stop at Deptford Creek – one time heart of shipbuilding on the Thames – so on to Greenwich, the Cutty Sark and the splendours of the old Royal Naval College!
Even more gems as we make our way back to Deptford High Street – lively as ever on a Sunday afternoon!
I can hardly wait for Nana and John’s midsummer Wedding in the magical setting of old farm buildings in the heart of the Sussex countryside!
We were so thrilled when Alison and Simon chose West Woods, near Marlborough for their Engagement Shoot. West Woods is well known for it’s carpet of bluebells and it was certainly looking it’s best this weekend! We had a great morning and enjoyed catching up with Alison and Simon’s exciting plans for their August wedding…..can’t wait!
Steph and James, on top of the world! They chose Foxhill on The Ridgeway for their Engagement Shoot as it is an area they both know and love – James having known it since a boy! We had a great time with Steph and James and were so pleased that they brought Lily and her son Alfie along too! Here are our favourites from the day!
