Engagement shoot in Delamere Forest

Engagement shoot

Engagement shoot

This is the first engagement shoot I’ve featured on English Wedding. I’ve been thinking about who’s out there reading the blog (hello, you!) and what you’d like to see… it kind of figures you’re probably engaged so I hope you’ll enjoy these.

I’ll share the lovely photos first: they’re from ARJ Photography, based in Manchester. The bride and groom to be are Liz and Jon, and their engagement (or pre-wedding) shoot was at Delamere Forest.

There's time and space to relax and enjoy the day

This is stunning - I'd like to think this tree will be there forever, and generations will find it and remember their great-great... grandparents

Relax and enjoy the romantic moments!

I've heard photographers say you can tell the couples who are head over heels... I see what they mean.

A pre-wedding photo shoot helps you relax and find that 'click' with your photographer

I didn’t realise these two photos were joined up until I posted them here! Like it!

There's plenty to play with in the forest - this buttercup is a lovely touch!

They both like butter.

I wonder what's going through their minds?

More from ARJ Photography on English Wedding very soon as I hope Adam will be writing a little guest blog for us. (Adam – that’s another hint!)
