Rob and Nikki met at work in the Xray department of The Royal Bournemouth Hospital in 2008. They got engaged two years ago and decided to have their engagement shoot with me at Shearwater in Crockerton Wiltshire as Nikki spent a lot of time having picnics there with her family and it is a beautiful location.
‘500 Days of Summer’ is one of Anthony and Liz's favourite films after a super romantic build up to their relationship much like the film and as well as the characters from the film 'Summer' and 'Tom' visiting Ikea a few times and pretend they live there like a 1950’s couple. So I suggested Southampton's Ikea for their engagement shoot which they loved and worked so well with their favour film.

Sian and James live in Southampton and met 6 years ago, while James was still at University studying yacht design and Sian was living on the Isle of Wight. They chose Cowes as their engagement shoot, as it is a very special place for them. One of their first dates was here and Cowes has been their gateway to many Island adventures. It's also where Sian met many Friends, working at the hospital there. Also Cowes is the capital of UK yachting and James is, well addicted to boats - so it was really appropriate!
Stacey and Ben's story started 15 years ago, when they both met whilst working together and fell for each other immediately. Ben graduated University 5 years later and they moved in together after years of travelling.

They chose Brownsea Island as it is where they have visited come rain or shine as it is a beautiful spot to watch the world go by together and now as family.
