A Steam Punk Engagement

I do love the eclectic tastes i bring to you on the blog, and today i am mixing things up with a gorgeous alternative couple, who declare themselves as geeks…. and i am loving them already!!

To combine their love of crafts and history, they have settled for a steam punk wedding theme, which they also incorporated into their awesome engagement shoot :-)

Thanks so much to the brilliant Leeds based wedding photographer, James P Lester Photography for sharing their work with us today, here is what they had to say about the shoot;

‘We’re a she+him wedding photography team from t’north. We have a penchant for anything a bit different, vintage, quirky, and unusual and we love it when people have the same ideas about their weddings. We love our couples and we really try to get to know them and make sure we bring out their personalities with their engagement and wedding shoots. When we met Lottes and Rob, we immediately billed it as the most unique and exciting wedding of 2011 and we’ve been gearing up for it all year. We decided to really push the boat out for getting the perfect location for their engagement shoot as a stroll in the park just wasn’t going to cut it. We’re really pleased with the way it came out and we can’t wait to be let loose with our cameras and get a bit creative on their wedding day later this month! J+L x’

Here is what Lotte and Rob had to say about themselves:

‘We met while shooting laser beams at each other and fell in love surrounded by machinery. We got engaged having both finished PhD’s in chemical physics. The engagement was very traditional, with Rob down on one knee, but everything before and after that has been anything but. We’re both geeks and proud of it so we wanted a way to share that. Our home-made steampunk theme also allows us to combine Rob’s love of history with Lottes’ love of crafting for a day that will hopefully be unique and fun.’
Stay tuned for their amazing wedding very soon :-)) xoxo
