Trentham Gardens - Engagement Shoot
I first met Clare & Anthony in 2015 when I purchased some reclaimed cinema seats from them which now sit and look amazing in my studio - thanks very much! Anthony's a joiner and Clare is one of the most creative people I've ever met, really into art and design and they're both dead cool, love their rock 'n' roll and simply enjoying life. So about a year after I purchased these cinema seats, Clare comes wandering over to me at a Save the Date Wedding Fair in Nottingham (the WEWAD one), looking for me, and pleased to see me using the cinema seats at the wedding fair. She said she wanted me to capture their wedding, and the rest is history...!
Trentham Gardens is beautiful, you basically pay for entry and you have the run of the place, there's a huge lake, pedalos, a monkey sanctuary (if you're into that). We spent an hour or so walking round before stopping for coffee and finalising the wedding day plans. There's just a handful of photos from this collection here, taken in late September 2017, when Autumn is just starting to set in. The wedding is at Kelham House Hotel at the end of October. I'll post some of my favourite wedding pics from their day later in 2017 / early 2018.
