Hannah & Kyle were my first wedding booking for 2017 way back at the beginning of last year. I'd just done a Jonny Draper workshop at Styal Lodge when Hannah told me that's where they'd booked - I've been so excited, knowing how stunning the venue is, and I couldn't ask for a cooler, more relaxed couple to work with!
We met last weekend at a woodland area near to us in Wistaston to do a pre wedding shoot, have a chat about their plans and run through the sorts of things I'll be doing with them on the day. Lots of my couples tell me on their wedding day how glad they were to have already done a shoot with me beforehand so they know what to expect when it comes to their couples portraits - for most people this is the first time being photographed like this, so a pre-shoot really helps show that its nothing to be nervous about. And, when it comes to the big day I find my couples need only a small amount of guidance when we're shooting, and can instead enjoy some time together amongst all of the celebrations!
Hannah let me know she was bringing their dogs Paddy & Oscar along with them for the walk, and I was greeted by two excited pups who definitely knew this wasn't just a normal walk! They posed brilliantly for some shots between wandering - aren't they adorable!
Only 3 days until I'm over at Styal Lodge with these guys again! Cant wait to share their wedding here too! <3
