NATALIE & LUKE: Newark Engagement Shoot

NATALIE & LUKE: Newark Engagement Shoot

On Thursday we met with Natalie and Luke for the first time, who have flown in from Australia to stay with Natalie's parents. It's one of the few times they'll be in the UK ahead of their wedding next March at Kelham House. They're catching up with family and friends in the UK, having their engagement shoot of course and Natalie has started the important job of wedding dress shopping with her mum! I chose the castle grounds in Newark to meet up at the bandstand as it's a pretty, green and leafy location, and we were blessed with a beautifully sunny day. After a walk around the park and along the river, we finished with a drink at a nearby bar to make wedding plans.

Sarah & Dave's Nottingham Engagement Shoot

Sarah and Dave moved to Australia about four years ago and are returning to Nottingham in May next year to hold their wedding. Dave used to be a part of the team at World Service Restaurant and, as one of the best restaurants in the city, it made sense that they'd choose World Service to host their wedding reception.

They were back visiting Nottingham this week for their engagement party with their UK friends and family, as well as taking the opportunity to meet up with Mirror Imaging for a 'photo-walk' around Nottingham Castle and The Park. We also made some wedding plans and worked through the timings of their day, toasting their engagement with a glass of bubbly - because what better way to show off an engagement ring than with a glass of champagne in hand?! I am excited to be capturing their wedding next year - they've made some gorgeous choices for their day that reflect my tastes too and it promises to be a rather wonderful celebration. 

I absolutely love their engagement photographs, it's clear they're the best of friends as well as life partners and this shines through in their images.

Lee-Anne & Rob's Newark Castle Engagement Photographs

Last weekend we met up with Lee-Anne and Rob in Newark for their engagement photographs, ahead of their Warwick wedding at the end of the month. I've known Lee-Anne since primary school, so its a double honour to be photographing her wedding day. The gardens around Newark Castle behind the Gilstrap Registry Office and along the river proved a gorgeous backdrop for their engagement session. We were hit with a great rainstorm half way through but after taking shelter under the bandstand the sun came out again!
