Anna and John's Pre-Wedding shoot at their Cheshire Tipi Wedding Venue

Cheshire Tipi Wedding

Ok, so Anna and John are having a Tipi Wedding in a couple of weeks! -- and we can't wait to be part of it!
Meeting them yesterday at Anna's Mum & Dad's house (where their tipi wedding reception is being held) you could feel the excitement in the air, especially whilst we planned the day together at the kitchen table - notepads and laptops at the ready :-)
A photography enthusiast himself, Johnny has some photography ideas for their wedding which will look amazing once we pull them off - we're talking tipi wedding, next door's cornfield, lit up balloons, (a bit of evening rain for the umbrella/raindrops shot!) and fireworks! - basically, the whole shebang!

Cheshire Engagement Shoot

So our engagement shoot would be at Anna's Mum & Dad's house in Cheshire, a cottage which has the most amazing views from it! the opportunities for brilliant shots are boundless. We sat down together and chatted about the day before going for a quick drive around the area looking for gorgeous unique spots.  There was a brilliant spot in a field by a thistle bush with views looking out to Jodrell bank! - but it was a little too 'cow-patty' for Anna to be walking through on the wedding day.. never the less - we captured something special with the view while we were there.
We then headed back to their family home to have a look at next door's cornfield which was nicely coming into season - and made some some great shots. We made the best of the dying light of the day/twilight, in the cornfield.

It won't be long now until we're back over with Anna and John for their actual wedding day (just over a week now) and we really can't wait to shoot their tipi wedding here in Cheshire. Involved on the day will be Tipi Unique - supplying the gorgeous wedding tipi, Emma Hough Make Up Artist, Artistry in FlowersThis Little Piggy Hog Roast CateringSwan Bridal Boutique and SouthWest Band.
