All you need is love… and a little bit of sunshine

I love summer. It’s my favourite time of year. Everyone seems happy, they seem to have more time and to do the things that they love the most. It’s easier to feel beautiful and the sun is flattering too.

On one of these gloriously sunny days that we so rarely have in the UK, I met Phil and Laura for their Waddesdon Manor sunny pre-wedding photoshoot. The sky was blue, the bees were out and buzzing, everyone sported wide smiles and held onto ice cream cones, and even mushrooms poked their little heads out.

Surrounded by views of Oxfordshire, the Chilterns Hills, the Vale of Aylesbury and just a train ride away from London, this glorious 19th-century French Chateau with its magnificent Victorian style gardens is the perfect place for a Waddesdon Manor sunny pre-wedding photoshoot. There are roses, topiaries, footpaths and lots of playgrounds, which make Waddesdon Manor a great venue and location on any day out.


We couldn’t resist the Rococo style Aviary in the heart of the gardens and had to explore the trails around the gardens and the Manor. I love how relaxed Laura and Phil were with each other. Makes me feel all lovely inside 🙂


To say the least, we had a great time and this was just a taste of what was to come at their amazing Birtsmorton Court wedding. How exciting! 🙂

Here are some of the images from their Waddesdon Manor sunny pre-wedding photoshoot.

So even if you just want to go for a walk and an ice cream, or hey, how about a Waddesdon Manor sunny pre-wedding shoot, get in touch and let me know.

This is beautiful. They seem so relaxed and natural. Having a pre wedding shoot is important, as the couple are able to bond with each other, and with the photographer. Beautiful photography.
