Castle Coch – couple photoshoot | Hannah & Gareth

Where do I start with this magical and great couple photoshoot between such a loving, relaxed and fun couple! Hannah has managed to plan almost every aspect of her wedding, more than a year in advance, talk about being organised and ready right?


“All we can say is thank you – They’re beautiful! You’ve really captured ‘us’… always laughing and a bit silly… They are the best photos ever!”


I was asked by the couple back in the spring to photograph their wedding, I jumped at the chance. To document their magical story and special moments of love, to capture all emotions worn proudly at their wedding at the outstanding Buckland Hall, on bonfire night, how could I say no, it will be a fantastic wedding!

Hannah and Gareth were looking for some natural and genuine moments between them for their pre wedding photo shoot, we had arranged to meet at a local woodland, perfectly timed with the autumnal season displaying the very best that nature had to offer, oranges, the yellows and the greens, we were spoilt with the colours. As we arrived to a small part of the woodland, we each gasped in excitement and took in the majestic vista that stood before us.

As they were both a little camera-shy I decided to make them at ease by getting to know more about the wedding and of course updated each other on our past busy weeks. We got straight to it, having given a very little direction we headed straight for the smoke sticks! Bold, bright and impressive, not to mention attention grabbing… we drew in a small crowd that was for sure at the couple photoshoot!







A lot of the time neither Hannah or Gareth realised I had captured a photo of them during their couple photoshoot as they naturally embraced each other’s company at the woodland, enjoying the scenery having far too much fun… The light bursting through the autumnal canopy was irresistible not to include in some way, something Hannah and Gareth embraced perfectly almost as if I weren’t there, displaying their love and affection for each other…


Having photographed many couple photoshoot in the past this has had to be the most fun, bold and creative yet!
