Although they are not getting married until 2011 Christie and Martin were keen to do their pre-wedding shoot at this time, and it was good timing as well as the grounds will be in similar condition when they get married. It was also great to see them again having initially met at the wedding fair at Botley Park Hotel earlier in the year.
On an overcast day the entire grounds were available for us to use in open soft light and so we walked around most of the extensive rear gardens and also a couple of my favourite spots at the front of the house as well.
Christie and Martin are both dancers and so the posing and acting came naturally, and they are clearly in love making this pre-wedding shoot an absolute delight to photograph, and I’m really pleased with the results. It is amazing how with different couples you can still create unique images and find new locations even in a venue like Rhinefield House where we frequently photograph both pre-wedding shoots and couples weddings.
Here are some of the images from the session, and the full gallery is online with a password that family can request directly from Christie and Martin themselves.
