Tom and Clare met in Hartpury but look after Clares Nans rural holiday retreat in the Limousin in France for most of the year where they had their engagement shoot with me followed by their September Wedding at Highcliffe Castle in Dorset.
Jamie and Sarah chose Kingston Maurward for their Engagement Shoot with me because Jamie spent 3 years of college at Kingston Maurward and as the wedding venue (Athelhampton House) is in Dorchester, it was nice to go back with Sarah, show her around, plus very near to their Wedding Venue.
Simon and Holly had their beautiful summer wedding at Ashton farm in Martinstown near Dorchester. Ashton Farm is a beautiful Georgian barn and farmyard and rustic barn with beautiful stone masonry and exposed beams. They had a 50's, afternoon tea and vintage theme to their wedding
Ollys romantic tactics were to tease Nikki - She would often come into work and find out that her password was changed, or language settings to be in french and emails would automatically translate to Chinese. It clearly got her attention! They chose Peckham for their Engagement Shoot with me as is it where they bought their first home together. They love the Peckham area in London as it has great restaurants, pubs, outdoor areas and quirky buildings. There is always something going on.
Rachael loves Hengistbury Head and used to visit often with family. She introduced Chris to Hengistbury Headwhen they first got together - the beaches, the lovely grassy areas, the noddy train and the golf courses near by. He too fell in love with the place. So they thought it would be a brilliant place to have their engagement shoot. Chris loves to fly a kite too, so we thought we'd make it a kite flying engagement shoot too!
Jamie and Sarah met in Birmingham. They chose the Custard Factory in Digbeth for their engagement shoot as they spent many of their first dates there, enjoying Birmingham’s musical nightlife. The artist and creative look of the Custard Factory has always appealed to them and this was a venue they considered getting married in before getting seduced by the seaside in Bournemouth, so it was a perfect choice for the engagement shoot.
