Caroline and Nick’s June wedding at Iscoyd Park was absolutely lovely and I can’t wait to share it with you soon!  In the mean time I thought I’d introduce you to this gorgeous pair with their sweet engagement shoot in and around the quintessentially english town of Tarporley, which they are now lucky enough to call home.

Back in 2014 I made the decision to take engagement shoots out of my wedding packages and instead offer them as an optional extra.  As a result I have photographed fewer engagement shoots in 2015 than in any previous year and looking through these photographs now I have to admit I miss them.  I still firmly believe they’re a great opportunity for couples to experience being in front of the camera before they say I do. Wedding schedules can be very tight and rarely do I have more than 15 minutes to take portraits of the newlyweds on the day itself.  Having a more relaxed and informal shoot in the weeks leading up to their wedding means my couples have another lovely collection of portraits to look back on in years to come.

This is the story of an american girl and an english boy who fell in love and celebrated with the most elegant wedding in the heart of London.  Emily and Angus are like peanut butter and jelly (or jam to us english folks!); they’re as different as can be, but somehow they just work and it’s clear to see how happy they make each other.

Each began their day at Durrants Hotel in Marylebone where they prepared for the wedding with their dearest friends.  They chose to be married at St Cyprian’s Church, which is a hidden gem of a building located on a quiet street just a stone’s throw away from Regent’s Park.  After the wedding ceremony guests from both sides of the pond were invited to a drinks reception at the couple’s apartment, before a short journey on a traditional London bus took them to Home House where they enjoyed delicious food, fine wines and witty speeches.

I always get such a buzz visiting places for the first time.  My eyes greedily absorb all the sights and my brain goes into overdrive trying to understand what this new place is all about.  Later this week I’ll be jetting off on a 15 day trip which will take me to Toronto, New York, Washington DC, Rockland and finally Boston and I can’t wait!  It’s going to be brilliant; exhilarating and no doubt exhausting.

So before I go I thought I’d take a deep breath and reflect on a part of the world I’ve visited more times than I can remember and will certainly return to again and again. Being in Provence and the Cote d’Azur feels like home away from home for me.  Looking at these photographs reminds me that there is as much joy to be had from relaxing in a familiar environment as there is from exploring a new one.  This beautiful planet is too vast to explore thoroughly in a single lifetime and whilst we might try our best, it’s also important to build a continuum of memories in places which are close to our hearts.
