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.

Dawn & Nick's Kelham House Wedding

Dawn and Nick were married on Friday in an intimate ceremony attended by just their immediate family. We wandered around the grounds of Kelham House in the afternoon, taking full advantage of the woodland setting and the sunlight streaming through the trees. Meanwhile, their family pulled up chairs around a big table and enjoyed Pimms under the shade of a tree. I absolutely love Dawn's bouquet, created after instructing her florist 'I don't care what flowers you use, as long as they're bright!'. Their wedding was relaxed and meaningful, just the way it should be.

Dawn & Nick's Engagement Shoot

Dawn contacted me a while back after seeing me on Kelham House's list of recommended photographers and after speaking on the phone, she booked me for her wedding to Nick in July. It will be an intimate affair, no bridesmaids or best man, just a small number of their closest friends and family. This will be a lovely wedding to photograph; relaxed, personal and meaningful. We met up in Farnsfield to take a photo-walk amongst the trees and greenery, not forgetting a close-up of Dawn's incredibly pretty and unique pale sapphire engagement ring.

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!
