Vicky & Peter's Newstead Abbey Engagement Shoot

Vicky got in touch a while back about photographing her wedding to Peter and I knew straight away I wanted to be their photographer. For one, she's going to make a beautiful bride! Their Nottingham wedding will also be a huge affair in the town centre, bringing together their Egyptian and English roots with much celebration and merriment. Lastly, it is clear how much Peter adores his bride-to-be, and it's lovely to witness such attentive, sincere affection between them. In contrast to the urban setting for their wedding, I wanted to take their engagement photographs in lush, green surroundings. Newstead Abbey is looking rather beautiful at this time of year and is very quiet in the week, so it seemed the perfect choice. Drinks and thorough planning of their day followed in the nearby Hutt pub! It is, by the way, completely correct and in keeping with their wedding traditions to wear the engagement ring on the right hand ring finger!
