As part of the wedding photography packages at Lindsey Arber Photography, a pre wedding shoot is included for all couples when booking us for your wedding photography. Not every couple will choose to have a pre wedding shoot. But the option is there and why not make the most of some professional photos of you both.
A pre wedding shoot gives you a chance to capture some nice photos of you and your partner. It also gives us a chance to spend a bit of time getting to know each other. Just a little bit more, before the day itself. A lot of my couples mention those nerves of being in front of a camera. It’s surprising how many people feel the same. The pre wedding shoot is a great way of showing couples just how relaxed my approach is. By the end of the shoot couples always comment how glad they were to have had the photos taken. How it helps to calm any nerves. No more worrying about it, as you now know what to expect and that it can also be fun.
If you are planning to book your pre wedding shoot in soon, here are a few handy tips that might make for a useful read.
So here are quite a few photos from a selection of pre wedding shoots for you to all browse through. And just to pre warn you, there will be lots of smiles, laughter, hugs and kisses. They might just give you some inspiration for your own pre shoot too…
Some of the beautiful venues seen in the photos above include- Barton Hall Hotel, Dodmoor House, The Barns at Hunsbury Hill, Rockingham Castle, Dodford Manor, Keythorpe Manor, Bassmead Manor Barns, Grendon Lakes, Hothorpe Hall, Foxton Locks, Kettering Park Hotel, The Granary at Fawsley Hall, The Wood Norton Hotel and Kilworth House.

So its been a little while since Monique & Matt’s Pre Shoot back in May but as I was backing up some jobs and had another look through, I just had to share some more with you.
This lovely couple will be getting married in September and I can’t wait to get back to the church in Great Bowden to take more photos. We should by then also have some autumnal colours on the trees which will only add to the photos even more (I have mentioned this a few times before BUT Autumn is my favourite time of the year!).
After their ceremony on the day it will be on to Foxton Locks for the celebrations with their guests, which means even more photo opportunities…in between canapés and bubbles that is!
Booking a Pre Shoot in before your wedding day is always a good idea as it gives us the opportunity to get to know each other a bit, to talk through your plans of the day and to try out some of the photo ideas before the day itself. Pre Shoots are always relaxed and fun! Chatting and laughing our way through was definitely something we did for this session.
Here are some more of my favourites from their Pre Wedding Shoot…

I can’t wait to be back at Keythorpe Manor tomorrow with our lovely bride & groom to be, Katherine and Ed!
We met up for their pre shoot at the start of the month, which gave us a great chance to explore the grounds as it was my first time at Keythorpe Manor. As soon as your enter the grounds you are spoilt for choice on where to take photos. The beautiful manor itself provides a lovely backdrop, or the many winding paths through the grounds, and all of this is surrounded by countryside.
Elmo also joined us for some photos, and all though he was a little excited as it was also his first time at Keythorpe, he was amazing in front of the camera!
So tomorrow we will be recreating some of these photos of the newlyweds and I can’t wait to see how the photos on the swing turn out with the bride and groom in a gown and suit!

I recently got to meet up with Amy & Jake again as it was time for their pre wedding shoot, with their wedding only a few weeks away! So off we headed to the beautiful Bassmead Manor Barns to take at look around their chosen venue, discuss last minute details ahead of their big day and to take some photos around the grounds to show the type of photos we could get on the day itself.
We were spoilt for choice for photo opportunities with the tree lined drive leading to the venue, the surrounding landscape of fields as far as the eye could see, and the barn yards surrounded by the stream.
On top of all these options for the photos, we also had the sun shining to finish it all off. I can’t wait to get back to the barns and to recreate some of these with soon to be newlyweds. Here are my favourites for you to take a look through….

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!
