Lisa and Christopher basically described their wedding reception as a big old party on Christopher’s family farm in Ely, so we’ve been really excited about their wedding which we will cover from morning until night. An Ely pre wedding shoot on the farm seemed a natural choice, and we headed over to take some shots of our couple, accompanied by one of the prettiest dogs we have met in a long time, Maple! Here’s a look back at the shoot as we prepare for what we are sure will be a super day tomorrow!
After a few days of grey drizzle we were really happy when the sun shone for Clare and Mark’s Ely pre wedding shoot which they chose to have along the river. After a catch up on their wedding plans over a drink in The Cutter Inn, we let them stroll along the river together. We say to all our couples, to enjoy the period of time when all they have to do is talk, walk and kiss! For most couples (including us!) it’s very rare to get a chance to do this, and most find it very enjoyable, with Clare and Mark being no exception. When we first met Mark, having previously met Clare in a professional capacity, he seemed the ‘quieter’ of the two, yet during the pre wedding shoot he relished the opportunity to have a good snog with his bride to be, almost making Clare bashful! A clear observation we made that afternoon was how much these two laugh together, they are constantly making each other giggle and it was so lovely to be around.
We’re really excited about photographing their wedding on Friday in the art deco splendour of Eltham Palace in South London, it what we are sure will be a stylish and fun wedding completely tailored to them.
