With winter well and truly here and Christmas only 4 weeks away, what better way to remember the beautiful sunny Autumn afternoons we had this year, than with a warm Engagement Shoot filled with gorgeous light, golden leaves & a couple head over heels in love. Helen & Rob will become husband and wife just 4 days before Christmas at Wasing Park in Berkshire and I’m crossing my fingers for a magical white wedding! 😉

Beautiful bride and groom photograph by Anneli Marinovich

Don’t worry – you will be shedding happy tears as you read Jemma’s story about her winter wedding day. This is one of the loveliest things I’ve ever read and I was smiling and crying all the way!

Jemma did a write up for their friends and family who couldn’t be there on the day, which is such a lovely thing to do – and will make an enchanting keepsake for future generations! The text below is a collection of extracts from Jemma’s write up, just selected parts to accompany the beautiful pictures. Jemma’s an incredible writer and as this is her wedding I won’t interfere by adding my own comments – these are all Jemma’s words.

English Wedding blog sponsor Anneli Marinovich submitted the images of the wedding day. They make a wonderful team. Grab a cuppa and a cushion to squeeze and hide behind as you read a remarkable wedding story you’ll never forget…

A Nice Day for a White Wedding…

I love this! Proper phone boxes make a great location for a photo

I love this! Proper phone boxes make a great location for a photo - and Rebecca's dress is gorgeous!

Anneli Marinovich is a photographer I haven’t featured on the English Wedding blog before… but I’m about to make up for that, and there will be more to come very soon!

Anneli sent me a couple of images from Rebecca and Ben’s fun engagement shoot in London and I was hooked – this couple are amazing, you’ll love Rebecca’s red dress and Anneli’s created a collection of images which really show the bride- and groom-to-be, and our pretty cool capital city, at their very best.

Enjoy!

I love Rebecca's beautiful smile in this shot! It's wonderful to see someone enjoying an engagement shoot so much - and inspiring too! (And the dress is gorgeous... where do I get one?)

engagement photography on english weddingHello there, and happy Sunday night / Monday morning. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed as much gorgeous sunshine as we had here in Cheshire today. Well it’s back to work with a bump on Monday morning – for me too – but I think I can lift your spirits by saying… “Welcome one and all to e-shoot week on the English Wedding blog!”

This week’s all about engagements. Christmas and New Year are peak times for proposals, and if you’re just setting out on your wedding planning adventure let me say a very happy Congratulations to you and your other half – and enjoy every second of the whole experience! It will be a journey you will never forget.

So what’s e-shoot week all about? I thought it would be a great opportunity to share some pre-wedding photography sessions with everyone. I featured the first ever e-shoot on English Wedding back in October and it inspired me to look into pre-wedding photography in a big way. Many photographers offer engagement photography as a way to get comfortable with being photographed before your big day – and I think it’s a fantastic thing to do.
