How To Ace Your Engagement Shoot…

Engagement shoots. They tend to divide opinion and have often been subject to mockery. Having your photograph taken can be a squirm inducing experience and isn’t one we tend to enjoy. BUT, get the right photographer, and suddenly you’ve got gallery wall worthy images of you and your love. Something to truly treasure for the rest of time.

We feature engagement shoots here on RMW quite frequently as lots of the photographers we work with offer them to their couples as part of their photography package. But how do you look as effortless and loved up as the people you see here on RMW? Well listen up as I’m about to share all of their secrets…

Rachael & Mark

One thing you won’t be able to stop doing whilst looking through this lovely collection of images by Chris Barber Photography is smile. Rachael & Mark are the most adorable couple and are literally beaming from ear to ear the whole time, as are their guests.

The bright colour scheme and laid back vibes will bring you pure joy, as will the fabulous fashion and florals. I love that Rachael had her gown tailor made, the ankle length hem is perfect for showing off her beautiful shoes, and the bridesmaid floral frocks are delicious.

Now who’s ready to delve into this city wedding…?

Amber & Tom by Mad Rose Films Pin Image

Amber & Tom

This may be a small intimate wedding, but it’s certainly not lacking in style and grace.

The gorgeous outdoor ceremony at the Summergrove Estate in Australia is simply jaw dropping, with a fabulous arbour altar and picturesque views that go on for miles.

Taking inspiration from the great outdoors came the sophisticated white, green and navy colour scheme, proving that keeping things simply can have maximum impact.

Mad Rose Films was behind the lens perfectly capturing and preserving all those wonderful memories in both stills and film, so get comfy and enjoy.

Joy & Gabriel

Hampton Court House is such a beautiful place for a wedding – I love that the reception room is behind a gorgeous doorway, meaning you can create a show stopping moment as guests enter the room. Joy and Gabriel have dressed the venue simply with white lanterns and lots of blush pink flowers, making the most of the stunning archway door, high ceilings and floor tiles.

Our lovely couple have lots of friends and family with young children and I have to say, this is hands down the best wedding in terms of catering for kids that I’ve ever seen! All the little people look like they’ve had the BEST day, as well as giving their parents the time and space to enjoy the wedding on their own terms too. Even more lovely, is the fact that Joy found out she was pregnant shortly before the wedding 🙂 making these photographs even more special.

Katie & Mike

Hold on to your hats team, as this wedding is a total blast from start to finish. Gorgeous fashion and details are kind of a given with RMW real weddings, but we feature photographers and videographers with lots of different styles (quality being the similarity between them all). And today it’s all about fun and creativity. Katie and Mike chose The Crawleys as their photographers and This Modern Revelry to film their big day – these guys both love to capture the individual personalities brought to a wedding day and I have a feeling you’re going to really like looking at the images and watching the film. So grab a cuppa, get comfortable and enjoy…the joy is simply infectious!

Alice & John

This morning we’re escaping to beautiful Umbria in Italy for an intimate, minimal and stylish wedding brimming with fun, family and friends. Having a destination wedding is a sure fire way to ensure that guests are relaxed and really make the most of their weekend and it certainly looks like Alice & John’s guests did that! They actually used the destination weddings we feature here on RMW to help them narrow down their venue and they opted for the stunning Abbazia San Pietro.

Alice and John look utterly glamorous and sophisticated in a minimal elegant gown Charlotte Simpson and a black tux with red rose corsage. Images come from Paolo Ceritano who we rate highly for his authentic style and it also sounds like his help was invaluable for Alice & John when planning their destination wedding.

Soho to Brooklyn Bridge

I can’t think of a better way to start the weekend than with this urban glamour inspiration shoot in New York City. The tones are delicious, the atmosphere electric and the photography by Bonnie Jenkins is completely mesmerising.

Everything is centred around gorgeous bride Anastasia roaming the iconic NYC streets, looking absolutely fierce in a beaded Suzanne Harward gown and carrying the most sumptuous of blooms by Heavenly Blooms.

Now are you ready to swoon and sign, because I can guarantee you will? Enjoy.
