Jessy and Steve are getting married at Cossington Park later this month, so we took to the beach for an engagement session. The beach was the perfect destination for their shoot; Jessy, a hairstylist, wore soft pastel-tones & floral styled herself a gorgeous wavy down-‘do, while Steve wore classic white-T & jeans, both outfits I always recommend wearing to tie in with my fine-art shooting style. The tones also suit the wedding theme and styling which is why beach locations are my most popular portrait shoot destinations.
Theodora & Raul held a humanist wedding ceremony at Theo’s family home. High tea was served in the gardens, with porschetta and sharing platters served within the tipi-style marquee. Theo & Raul made use of the pretty private woodland behind the house, for some fine-art portraits after high tea.

evening reception at Cossington Park wedding venue.
Jessy’s beautiful dress included gorgeous pink tulle which was subtle in some light and really quite deep at other times.
I adore this photo yet I’m very aware at how staged it looks; It wasn’t at all staged. Jessy is a hair stylist and did her own hair and make-up – her touch-ups going on while her maids sorted the layers of tulle.
Jessy & Steve live in my town although until their wedding day, we only knew each other in passing. I’m so pleased I got to know them in the run up to their wedding and had a wonderful day capturing all their plans and events and the love, friendship, emotion and hilarity that ensued.
Jessy decked out the entire marquee herself, buying lampshades from charity shops and hanging these fresh flowers from the ceiling. All the reception and church flowers were assembled by Jessy and her Mum, the day before the wedding.
