Belinda & Paul: Pre-wedding photos at Rhinefield House

Belinda and Paul get married at Rhinefield House at the end of May. We hadn’t met when they booked as they’ve been working abroad so it was lovely to finally see them in person and go through their wedding plans. We did a few pre-wedding portraits around the grounds of Rhinefield. I love it out there in the middle of the forest- its a venue with so many photo opportunities and I’m really looking forward to their intimate summer wedding.

More from Belinda and Paul in a few weeks…

Caroline & Graham’s Pre-wedding photos at New Place

Caroline and Graham are getting married at New Place in Shirrell Heath later this month. We met up to go through the final plans and a pre-wedding photo session in the surrounding woods. Early evening isn’t called the ‘Magic Hour’ by photographers for nothing- the light on sunny summer evenings is perfect for portraits (and of course wedding photos!)  I really love how these came out with the sun glinting through the trees.

Angela & Stephen’s Pre-wedding photos at Stanwell House

I’m back at the funky boutique hotel Stanwell House in Lymington next weekend for Angela and Stephen’s wedding. We met there a couple of weeks ago to finalise their plans and grabbed a few pre-wedding photos to get them used to being in front of the lens.

Natasha & Peter Hayling Island Engagement Photos

Natasha & Peter are getting married in a few weeks on Hayling Island. We met there today for a pre-wedding portrait session on the beach, for a bit of a trial run before the big day. The beach huts provided a colourful backdrop for some fun photos, and the love shack- what a find! We brought some props along for a bit of a beach theme, and I think these made for some quirky photos. Thanks to Natasha and Peter for being great sports and being relaxed and cheerful in front of the camera. I’m really looking forward to our next session on their wedding day where we can build on some of the things we’ve tried to today.

Nick & Helen’s Pre-Wedding Photos at Winslowe House

Today I met up with Helen and Nick who are getting married soon at Winslowe House in Southampton. I include a pre-wedding photo shoot with my wedding photography as it gives the couples a first taste of being in front of the camera, and me a chance to see how they are with being photographed. Today was a great example: I learned that on their wedding day I will have to look out for Helen blinking ALOT and for Nick to pull that face… 🙂
