Northampton Wedding Photography – Eloise & Jason’s Pre-Wedding Shoot.
My pre-wedding photo shoots are always something that I look forward to. This time is spent getting to know my wedding clients better, as previously we may only have spent an hour or two together at their initial consultation. And getting them to relax in front of the camera is also very important. During this particular session I discovered that Jason has particularly good taste when it comes to supporting football clubs, and Eloise is beautiful and looks great in photographs!
Under normal circumstances, I would arrange to meet up again with clients for their pre-wedding shoot around 6-8 weeks before the actual wedding day. Eloise & Jason are not getting married until mid July, but suggested that it would be nice to have some bluebells visible during the the session. As I’m sure you know bluebells have a pretty short window of opportunity, and with juggling their home and work commitments we decided to meet up towards the end of April, just as the bluebells were starting to flower.
They live in Aylesbury and are fortunate to be quite close to the Ashridge Estate in Hertfordshire which is a National Trust site. This is is a particularly lovely part the Chilterns, and an area I have great fondness for as my childhood home was just a few miles away. There are acres of ancient woodland and some fantastic views over the fields of oil seed rape. The location is also well known for bluebells!
We had arranged to meet on a particularly windy and chilly Saturday morning, but with the sun deciding to shine for most of the session, it was very pleasant indeed.
Their wedding will take place at the Burnham Beeches Hotel, and I’m really looking forward to it as it’s a venue that I have not worked at before. Also as their initial wedding enquiry had come to me via a member of their family, whose wedding I had photographed a couple of years ago, it will be lovely to see familiar faces at Eloise & Jason’s wedding.
Below are a few of the photographs taken during the session, and I hope you enjoy them:
