Today was a pre-wedding meeting with Alice and Richard who are tying the knot at Nostell Priory on 24th July. I headed over to Alice’s family home in Hillam for the meeting and it also gave me a chance to scope out the setting for the big day as this is where she will travel from. The extensive gardens were great for our engagement shoot, a great way of us all getting to know each other and have a practice session with the camera. Not everyone is comfortable with being centre of attention in front of a camera but Alice and Richard had no problems and we captured some great relaxed images. The rose garden at Nostell should make a fine setting for the photos with the roses probably at their best at the end of July. The wedding will take place in the upper hall at the house then we will make our way over to the rose garden for the formals and the wedding party photos. So long as the weather holds, we’ll have a great time I’m sure.
