Romance On The Mountains.


You know when images are just beautiful? that. This scenic inspiration shoot was set in the French mountains, I mean seriously – could it get any more atmospheric than that?

There is a whiskey bar, urban-esque floral accents and some unique yet contemporary fashion choices, I would definitely like to see a bride pair some biker boots with her gown some day soon. Did I mention how gorgeous the couple, Blanche and Juliann are?! Super HOT.

If I was to describe this shoot in one word? FIT.

Enjoy folks.

Irish Beauty.


This afternoon we’re off to the rugged West of Ireland for a truly atmospheric engagement shoot.

Alexis and Emmanuelle braved four seasons in a day, rugged landscapes and secluded beaches allowing Thierry from Pretty Days to capture some magnificent images of the lovely pair.

The wilderness suits them too; they both look very at home amongst the greenery.

The images of them getting ready together are very touching too, there is a tenderness between the pair which shines through in every image.

Magical Light On The Jurassic Coast.


There is something very ‘other worldly’ about Julia and Grant’s engagement shoot. It’s like they’ve disappeared to another planet – honestly, it sounds crazy, but when you look at the images, you’ll see exactly what I mean!

The light and colour captured in the images is incredible – soft golds, bright yellows and azure blues.

The scenery is also magnificent, I mean how can you beat a coast line that records 185 million years of the Earth’s history?! It’s truly spectacular.

I’m also really hoping that we get to see the wedding photos so we can see how Julia styles her cute bob…and judging by her outfit for the shoot – I’m pretty sure she’ll be wearing something delicious for her wedding day too.

The whole shoot really is dreamy, so I’ll stop waffling and let the pictures from James Green do the talking.

Lovers In The London Sunshine.


We’re back in London this afternoon with an gorgeous engagement shoot from Hayley Savage Photography. Rebecca and Fang are a truly well travelled couple and having lived in Melbourne and travelled across Europe, they decided on their home, London, as the backdrop to their shoot.

And I have to say it looks lovely, very smart and grand – a city to be proud of.

Rebecca and Fang have certainly dressed for the occasion too. I have no doubt that you’ll be coveting some of Rebecca’s wardrobe after you’ve looked at these images.

I’m lusting after that pretty green skirt and those sparkly silver shoes. Those Chanel earrings would probably come in handy too…

Just Love.


Ashleigh and Fergus decided to elope to London for their wedding. Eloping is something which many people toy with at some point during the deepest, darkest days of their wedding planning – but few actually go ahead with it.

We talked about it a few weeks ago in an Ask Lolly post and generally the reaction was mixed, some people felt that it wouldn’t be fair to family members and others were themselves eloping to wonderful distant lands – but the one thing which stood out was the fact that eloping actually removes everything unnecessary from the day.

Essentially a wedding is about two people promising themselves to each other for the rest of time. That’s it. As pretty and fun as everything else is…at the heart of it, it’s just about your love for each other.

And while it might not be something you would consider, there is no denying the love and joy that radiates from Ashleigh and Fergus at their London elopement. Have a good read of Ashleigh’s report too – she’s a wise soul.

A Pink Blossom Engagement Shoot.


This afternoon’s engagement shoot is lovely. It gets right to the heart of what I think an engagement shoot should be about. And that’s just the two of you – no fussy venues or props…no fancy outfits and styling…

They are simply just two people in love. Which is exactly what it’s all about.

And Lucy and Danny look so comfortable with each other. They both just look so happy – it positively radiates from them.

I also love that Lucy’s pink jumper echoes the blossom and Danny’s shirt is as blue as the sky.

And there’s nothing more romantic than kissing under a cherry blossom tree.

Seven Days To Fall In Love.


Do you believe in love at first sight?

Perhaps you do, perhaps you don’t. Whatever your thoughts on the matter I promise that you won’t fail to be moved by Anissa and Carlo’s romantic love story. Honestly folks, it is so dreamy, so perfect that someone really needs to make a movie based on their heady first days together.

We’re going a bit off-script this afternoon since usually we post an international wedding rather than an engagement session on a Wednesday but when Alethiea from Xander & Thea Photography sent me this engagement shoot I couldn’t resist sharing it with you lovely lot.

Hopefully you won’t mind too much, actually I’m prepared to hedge my bets that you’ll enjoy it as much as I have especially when you read what Anissa has to say about the seven days during which she and Carlo fell in love.

Got your tissues? Right let’s go.

East Coast Glamour.


Nic and Sarah’s pre-wedding shoot by Claudia Rose Carter looks like a melancholy editorial piece from a glossy magazine.

Seriously…the gorgeous pair just look so glamorous and cool hanging out by the dark and brooding sea with the grey sky stretching out above them.

I love Sarah’s bold red lip and she just looks so happy, warm and safe with Nic – which is precisely how being with your fiancé should make you feel.

More and more couples are having engagement or pre-wedding shoots. It helps them to relax in front of the camera and get used to their photographers style.

As someone who HATES having their photo taken, I think it’s a great idea. Sarah says that her and Nic were very camera shy at first, but by the end of the shoot…well, I think you can see from these images that they both relaxed and ended up looking like models!

A Romantic Stroll Along The Beach.


This afternoon we’ve off to the seaside for an engagement shoot amongst the beach huts.

Lucy and Carl are lucky enough to live in lovely Bournemouth and take romantic strolls along the beach most weekends.

There’s something so wonderful about the winter light at the seaside and Nick Rutter has captured it beautifully.

In the depths of a truly dark and stormy Winter – particularly so for the South Coast – Lucy and Carl were fortunate enough to have a calm day for their engagement shoot.

These images are full of fun and personality and if these are the engagement shoot images, I bet Lucy and Carl can’t wait for Nick Rutter to capture their wedding day!

A Railway Romance.


I have always had a love for train stations. They are just so romantic. A place where tears are shed as goodbye hugs are given…a place where lovers are reunited after time apart…a place where new adventures into the unknown are begun together…

Holly and Ed’s gorgeous engagement shoot evokes all of those emotions AND some…their shoot isn’t just from any old station. These images come from Sheringham Station, which is a part of the old North Norfolk Railway Line.

The sense of nostalgia seeps through the images – you can practically hear the whoosh of steam, the chugging of the engine and the station master’s whistle as the train leaves the platform.

I love that Holly went to town on her hair and make up too – she looks every inch the 40s lady. Engagement Shoots are a great excuse for a bit of dressing up, especially if your wedding isn’t going to be vintage themed, and this is such a fun one from Katherine Ashdown.
