I love it when my couples give their engagement shoot outfits some thought. There are so many options and each give the shoot a completely different feel. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw Katherine and Lev’s outfits at their Farnham Castle Tweed & Petticoats pre-wedding shoot.
Oh yes, I thought. This is going to be good.
A Farnham Castle Tweed & Petticoats pre-wedding shoot
It’s really important for me to connect with my clients. You hire a person after all, and it’s one of the reasons why I offer pre-wedding shoots. Of course I can take beautiful photos of you on your wedding day without a pre-wedding shoot, but having it means that you’ll be that much more comfortable in front of the camera and your wedding photos will show that.
When I first met Katherine and Lev I immediately felt the connection with Kat. She was my kind of bonkers and such a funny person. Lev on the other hand was a lot more reserved. So I was really pleased when we met at wonderful Farnham Castle and any hint of a question mark disappeared.
It turns out all three of us share a very similar sense of humour and adventure. So as the Autumn sun shone brightly on the glorious grounds at Farnham Castle we took our time to explore this beautiful venue.
Let’s explore Farnham Castle
I love the windswept leaves spread out across the beautiful grounds of the Bishops’ Palace and Farnham Castle. They were tiny pops of colour that made Kat and Lev’s tweed and petticoats really stand out on their pre-wedding shoot. Add to that their adventurous fun spirit and the result is a lot of time joking and laughing with each other. This engagement shoot also felt really close and intimate, especially once we climbed the steep rock stairs up to the Keep. The breathtaking views across the sunbathed Surrey valley are contrasted by the medieval feel of the Keep and well at the top of it. It’s worth coming here and taking in these views even if you are just visiting, and taking a relaxed walk around the extensive grounds of the Bishop’s Palace.
Below are some of my favourites from this gorgeous pre-wedding shoot, and if you are planning your wedding or engagement shoot here, let’s chat.
