Laura and Lewis are one of those couples who we feel like we have know for years rather than just eighteen months, so when they suggested Brighton for their pre wedding shoot we knew we were in for a day of fun! Mother nature did her bit and despite it being the end of March it was a glorious day. Shock revelations though when we discovered that fireman Lewis had NEVER given his fiancée a fireman’s lift! So naturally it made for the perfect time. Throw in some whose-line-is-it-anyway-style doughnut drama and a dive bombing seagull to nick your ice cream and you have a hilarious afternoon…
We are super excited about our first wedding at the stunning Hengrave Hall near Bury St Edmunds tomorrow. Having met Penny and Jon at the Knebworth Wedding Show at the start of the year, we’ve got to know them and love that as well as a gorgeous wedding in the splendour of the hall, they will also be having a lot of fun tomorrow. We headed to the gorgeous secluded North Norfolk beach where Jon proposed for their pre wedding shoot, on a blustery Autumn day – our favourite type of weather for a beach shoot!

We love going to the coast for shoots, and particularly when we have interesting weather. Give us a blustery rainy sky over a blue one any day! Just as well this was what we got with Penny & Jon for their pre wedding shoot on the secluded beach in North Norfolk where they got engaged (which shall remain nameless!)
After having a little bit of fun with them on the sand, we love the drama of this kiss! Their wedding will be our first at the gorgeous Hengrave Hall in Suffolk, so we’re very excited!

Those of you who have given us the pleasure of shooting your weddings will remember back to when we first met you, and we always love to hear your proposal story. We learn so much about you just hearing about it, observing your body language to each other, and usually gauge that we are dealing with two people very much in love. This didn’t happen when we met Ellie, as she came with her dad to see us as James was away working. Strangely for us, this was also the first time we met Ellie, as she had met the lovely Aimee & Sam who had covered the Hotel du Vin wedding fair for us whilst we were exhibiting at the two-day Knebworth Wedding Show. We also know Aimee & Sam make a great impression on people and Ellie was no exception, so it was fantastic she was willing to come and see us about her October wedding to James.
We finally got to meet James when we got together for their pre-wedding shoot in a gorgeously sunny Southwold during August’s heatwave, and over a scrumptious slab of cake thanks to the fabulous Two Magpies Bakery, and yes slab is the right word (!) Tom and I then got to experience that excitement hearing about them getting together and then the proposal, which happened just up the beach in front of the famous Southwold beach huts.
Not only did we get the amazing opportunity to provide Rianna and Matthew’s Guernsey Wedding Photography, but we also then headed to the stunning Cobo Beach on the island a few days after the wedding to have a beach post-wedding shoot with the couple!
This was an awesome experience for us with the couple allowing us complete artistic freedom, even agreeing to get into the sea, and we can tell you it got pretty sexy towards then end! The shoot took on a similar feel to a Trash the Dress shoot, but we loved the fact that we had Matt involved too. You’ll have to wait and see for those though, we have decided to share with you this gorgeously romantic moment between them for now.

Being Cambridge wedding photographers we tend to do a lot of pre-wedding and engagement shoots in the city, which we love as it is beautiful, but it is also wonderful to get out of the city every now and then, and we were excited when Rachael & Nik booked us for their April 2013 Berkshire wedding and told us that the beach at Wells-next-the-Sea was special to them.
