Brrr, it is feeling chilly now but remember all that balmy autumn weather we had last year? Here are a few images from an engagement session near Badby Woods back in the lovely warmth of early October.

It may still be a while away but I am already looking forward to Megan & Gary’s wedding at Dodford Manor*. It is a gorgeous Northamptonshire country wedding venue and I know that I will adore Megan’s bridal and reception styling – I am a big fan of her ceramics and design graphics which is how we originally met. And look how lovely they are themselves too!

I was more than happy when they asked to bring along their ruby Labrador for their engagement photo-shoot. He is a real cutie and a true ‘Lab’ – when we wanted him out of the images we threw him sticks and when we wanted him in we tempted him with treats! He also got to enjoy a favourite walk through his local woods, which also happens to be where Gary proposed …

Happy couple, happy dog and happy me, I get to photograph them again on their wedding day x

PS. Yes Megan did bring along two dresses for the session. A girl after my own heart, I had two wedding dresses!
