WWW resident real bride Chantelle is sharing her gorgeous rainy engagement shoot images from December in London with Valo Studio today. So cosy, cute and romantic. What a wonderful set of photographs to treasure xo Lou
2016 is done and wedding plans have been moving swiftly along!
Both remaining bridesmaids now know, with Katie finding out on her birthday, and Ginge finding out on a causal visit to her workplace on the same day as our engagement shoot.
Now they all know, they all need to meet and skirts can now be allocated as well as tops, accessories and shoes getting sorted. I’ve been busy guessing sizes, buying the skirts and some accessories too and luckily, in theory, the girls colour choices all match. It’s just putting it into practice now… *fingers crossed*.
More importantly though, our engagement shoot; shot at the beginning of December and receiving the photos on Christmas Eve (two weeks to the day, it was great!) we were able to share the photos on Christmas Day as the anniversary of our engagement. With the wait, it’s a nice way to keep things going without being too OTT all the time!
Our package from Valo Studio included the engagement. There was a package that didn’t include the engagement, but we decided to include it meant we could get comfortable around the camera and photographers.
Booking in December, I’d imagined it to be cold and frosty, with hints of Christmas along the way. Instead, it tipped it down, and I mean absolutely poured! Despite the weather, Alfred and his team were fantastic; they continued on through and created some fantastic shots that we were so pleased to share with our friends and family.
We were cold and drenched through after two hours, so called it a day, but we had such a fantastic time with some perfect shots coming from the shoot. I can safely say that I am no longer afraid of the rain; though the wedding is in August, I know people that have had rain in that month so there’s no guarantee but it can create an even more beautiful environment and atmosphere (though I will still hope for some sunshine).
I can’t wait to get a few of them in photo frames (neither can our parents!) and now look forward to our wedding, which is less than 600 days to go, and we have every bit of confidence in our photographers!
More to come as the day gets closer. Just wait for this summer holidays of creating!
