It turned out to be the most foggy day of the year so far, but actually I like it! Here are my favourites from Vanessa & Nick’s Pre Shoot.
I have been lucky enough to photograph weddings at Barton Hall on a few occasions now, and loved the difference the fog made to the grounds during the pre wedding shoot!
It was important to capture Vanessa and Nick looking comfortable on camera, especially as they had mentioned how much they don’t like having their photo taken! And that didn’t take long at all as they are so relaxed as a couple so we chatted and joked all the way through. Take a look at their pre shoot photos to see for yourself…
I’m already looking forward to being back at Barton Hall in March to photograph their Wedding Day!

Rob & Hannah’s Spring Pre-Wedding Shoot took place on Easter Sunday at the stunning venue of Brownsover Hall Hotel, Old Brownsover, Rugby.
This was a new venue for me and from what I had seen on the website, I couldn’t wait to look around. Located on the edge of Rugby, the Grade II Victorian Gothic mansion is surrounded by 7 acres of woodland and gardens which keep the hall a hidden gem.
As you turn off the country road and in to the entrance of the hall you are greeted with a canopy of trees leading you towards the entrance. With walled gardens to cobbled courtyards and forest walks there are so many photo opportunities. After a wonder around the grounds it was time to meet Rob and Hannah to discuss timings and plans for their wedding day. With a log fire crackling in the background it made the hall very inviting and cosy despite the high ceilings and victorian gothic features.
Once we had talked everything through it was back out side to take some photos of the couple. It was a bit chilly but this was nothing to complain about as the forecast leading to the day had warned of rain all day! Luckily the sun made an appearance and stayed for the duration! It really does add to the shots, highlighting areas of the building and shining through sections of the trees.
Shooting with a mixture of the Canon 24-70mm and 70-200mm lenses I wanted to show the beautiful surrounds but also get some shots focusing closer on the couple.
I am now really looking forward to Rob and Hannah’s big day where we will get to recreate some of these photo’s with the groom suited and booted and the bride in her beautiful wedding gown.
Pre-Wedding Shoots are a great way to run through any photo ideas ahead of your big day. It is also a chance for me to see how you are in front of the camera, what your comfortable with and what comes naturally to you. If you or your partner are feeling nervous at the thought of having your photo taken it will help with nerves as you will see I work in a relaxed way.
Pre-Wedding Shoots are included in all of my Wedding Photography packages but are still optional.
