 Liz & Ollie pre wedding photo shoot

Wow! What a great evening it was photographing Liz and Ollie on their pre wedding photo shoot, they are such a cool couple.

Liz and Ollie come from Ipswich in Suffolk so when we first met up to discuss their wedding photography we met up at a pub in Colchester mid-way between our two homes. In fact we met at Balkerne Gate (once I found it) – nice pub!

Once we got talking it turned out to be quite amazing at just what a small world it is. I started by showing them a  slide show of one of my previous weddings, Jade & Dave who were married in Long Melford.  As soon as Liz started watching it she told me that she knew Jade and that they actually used to work together at a dental practice in Sudbury.

It also turned out, as the conversation progressed, that some months previously I had met Liz’s dad and that he had in fact booked me to photograph his wedding.

Neither Jade nor Liz’s dad had mentioned me to them, small world eh! (I have in fact recently shown the Jade and Dave slide show to someone else who also recognised and used to work with Jade and as it turns out also knows Liz).

Anyway, back to the pre wedding photo shoot. We met up at Castle Park in Colchester and just had a walk around stopping and taking photos in various locations / settings. As you can see they both looked pretty cool, they were relaxed and willing to try anything and as you can see we got some brilliant photos.

Caitlyn and Ashley live in the lovely town of Braintree here in North Essex, however Ashley works in the delightful nearby village of Gosfield and it’s here that we decided to do our pre wedding photo shoot. If you follow my blog then you will know I always speak highly of Gosfield, and if you follow my blog then you will also know the reason why – it’s because I live here!

Gosfield has so many great features and makes an ideal location for a pre wedding photo shoot. It has fields, a nature reserve, ponds, houses with pink walls, blue doors, playing fields, a sports pavilion and to top it all Ashley’s dad has a garden which is absolutely bursting with beautiful, colourful flowers.

The photo shoot was a great opportunity for the three of us to get to know each other before their wedding which was to be at St Catherine’s Church, which also happens to be in Gosfield, later in the year. Although it was quite windy the sun was shining and it was a glorious day.

Caitlyn and Ashley are such a lovely and loving couple; it really was great to work with them. Although they were both a bit self-conscious at first, they were also very willing and enthusiastic and totally immersed themselves in the photo session.

We managed to photograph in a number of different locations and included some portraits against brightly painted walls, a romantic stroll across the playing fields and a rehersal of their first dance.

They both fully enjoyed the shoot and were absolutely delighted with the photos. It was also pretty obvious that they had benefited greatly from the pre wedding photo shoot, they became increasingly relaxed and more natural as the afternoon went on and it was clearly a huge help for the big day itself.
