A beautiful engagement shoot in Nottingham, with Jon Cripwell Photography

I stumbled across these gorgeous images of Ali and Terry’s engagement shoot at Wollaton Hall in Nottingham and couldn’t resist showing you – such a stunning couple and the photographs are fabulous! They’re ballroom dancers and I love how graceful and fun their images are – it’s also a wonderful showcase of engagement shoots and will, I hope, encourage you to book one of your own!

I totally agree with him: engagement shoots are such a brilliant idea, and I have another reason too: they allow you a little special couple time together in all the frenzy of wedding planning. What better excuse to have a day where you can enjoy each other’s company and have a bit of fun?! Ali and Terry did it with such style, I think they’re amazing…
