Amy and Stephen's Pre-Wedding shoot at The Lovell Quinta Arboretum


Swettenham Wedding Engagement Shoot

We were over at The Lovell Quinta Arboretum for Amy and Stephen's pre-wedding shoot recently, and what a gorgeous evening we had! For most of the day it had been overcast with moody grey clouds but ever the optimist I had a feeling we'd be treated to some nice golden hour light and well; that's exactly what we were rewarded with!

Lovell Quinta Arboretum Wedding Photography

Having shot at the Swettenham Arms previously I already knew the best places for photography - which made setting up idyllic shots nice and simple. We also made our way from the Lovell Quinta Arboretum over to a disused stableyard; a gorgeous little place for some intimate portraits!
Our walked looped around back to the Swettenham Arms lavender field which blooms in mid summer (unfortunately we were a bit early) where we ended our portrait session before Amy and Stephen grabbed a well earned meal at the Swettenham Arms.
