There are many beautiful historic halls and houses across East Anglia. Vicky and Dan chose Wimpole Hall as the venue for their pre-wedding photography shoot earlier in August. A magnificent 18th century hall designed by John Soane, bequeathed by Rudyard Kipling’s daughter to the National Trust in 1976, its walled gardens and red brick exteriors are a perfect back drop for a relaxed weekend Pre-Wedding Photography shoot with a distinct English country garden feel.
These sessions do incorporate a little bit of a tutorial for couples, teaching them how to pose naturally if they are having any posed shots (remember, I keep them to a minimum!) and discussing with them how and why using a more natural approach to more stylised shots can produce fantastic results. Looking relaxed and happy Vicky and Dan were great fun to photograph. It was particularly easy for me as they both interacted so well with each other, smiling and laughing naturally and generally feeling comfortable with each other, thus making it simple to capture them in natural ‘poses’, with the documentary style shots providing a good balance to the overall shoot.
One thing if you are a photographer – remember that National Trust properties require you to get permission and sometimes pay a fee to photograph on their property and there will be restrictions on how you use the images. This is often a contentious issue particularly over the issue of copy right. However, in this case it was a small price to pay for a very happy couple and I look forward to their wedding in September of this year at Longstowe Hall.
Are you planning to have Pre-Wedding Photography at Wimpole Hall?
If you are looking to have a Pre-Wedding Photography shoot give me a call on 0870 626 5200 or drop me a line at [email protected]. I photograph throughout the UK and Europe and would love to hear from you. They make for an amazing opportunity to take time out in the busy run up to a wedding and gives you a little capsule of time in which to reground and remind yourselves why you are getting married! It’s a chance to have a ‘photography dress rehearsal’ and just have fun with each other and let me capture great shots of you both. It can be in a city with the mix of architecture, urban spaces and gritty backgrounds, at a favourite country or coastal location or even your home and provide you with fabulous images that will remind you of the happy anticipation and excitement leading up to your big day.
If you have an idea for a Pre-Wedding Photography shoot that you think is innovative, unusual, exciting or just downright crazy please drop me a line; I always like to consider doing something that bit different………
