I first met Nicky and Gary whilst on a Pre-wedding shoot at Dartington Hall with Liz & Chris (whose wedding I photographed a couple of years ago).  Chris and Gary are brothers so they were all meeting up for a drink after the photoshoot.  After Liz & Chris’ wedding I then bumped into them again whilst photographing Polly & Tobias’s wedding and we laughed at what a small world it is in Devon.  Anyway, I was delighted to be asked to photograph their big day and the pre-wedding shoot was such a laugh.  Neither of them were big into having their photo taken, but I’ve managed to convince them otherwise which is a big relief.  Phew.  Bring on May! 

They chose their pre-wedding shoot location pretty easily as they had their first day here at Cockington and it’s also where Gary proposed. 

p.s did I mention that I love dogs?  ‘Could Marni join us on the shoot?’..  ‘Oh go on then (twist my arm)’…  She was a pro and her pink collar and lead toned very nicely with Nicky & Gary’s outfits and the bottle of rosé.  Take a look at Nicky’s pooch top in the last few photos – love it!

 

I’m a big fan of both colour and Spring and the following shots pretty much sum up why..
