A chilly Bristol winter engagement shoot

The temperatures have definitely dropped so it’s time to break out the bobble hats and chunky sweaters which made me think back to an extremely chilly but beautiful day in Bristol earlier this year with Charlie and Fred.

We headed to the Clifton Bridge, a landmark that has featured in Charlie and Fred’s story so of course it needed to feature in their engagement shoot (it’s great tying these sorts of memories together for your engagement shoot) and they both looked super stylish, all wrapped up.  I’m a sucker for a bobble hat (I’ve recently bought a super cute one from Oliver Bonas) and Charlie had a soft pink one that matched her coat perfectly, like I said, very stylish!  Which of course we then had to match with a pink door as a backdrop!



These guys were such troopers, as it was bitterly cold (about -2 degrees if my memory serves me well), in fact the very next day it snowed a lot in Bristol, so we were lucky with our timings.  It just goes to show that engagement shoots don’t have to be reserved for sunny days.  As the saying goes “there is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing” (Sir Ranulph Fiennes) and we actually spoke recently on The Outside Bride about getting great wedding photos regardless of the weather.  So if you’d like your own winter engagement shoot, then get in touch now as we have some slots left for January (perfect if you’re reading this and you’ve just gotten engaged!)

You’ve probably heard us say it before (or at least me!) but your engagement shoot is the perfect time to create some gorgeous images of this chapter of your life together.  Planning a wedding can be stressful, so taking some time out to remind yourselves why you’re doing this, and focusing on each other is another great reason for an engagement shoot!

Until next time,
