A romantic evening Pergola Gardens engagement shoot

When a couple arrive at their engagement shoot in an evening dress and suit, you just know that it’s going to be gorgeous! Emily and James pulled out all the stops for their engagement shoot at Pergola Gardens, and wow I cannot wait for their wedding which marks the official start of our wedding season.

This shoot is one of the reasons I love London engagement shoots, every one is different and you get to explore so many different places.

This beautiful garden is set in Hampstead Heath and is just breath taking.  The pillars and architecture was just perfect for this elegant engagement shoot, creating a romantic yet grand sense of style.

When we met, it was the start of that soft beautiful golden light (which you just know makes me excited) and is so romantic, again, the perfect setting for an engagement shoot.

The other thing I love about their shoot, is that they have chosen one of their images to be framed in one of our new Signing Frames, meaning their guests can sign the large mount that surrounds the image and then after the wedding they can pop it back in the frame and hang it in their home as a beautiful keepsake.   In fact, we loved their shoot so much, when it came to updating our sample of the Signing Frame, we used one of their images.  However, we can’t wait to see theirs in action at their wedding in a couple of weeks.

I know we’ve shared a lot of engagement shoots recently, it’s because out of season, it’s a great way to show you some of our work as well as showing you how diverse they can be so that they represent you as a couple.  Something you’ll know we are passionate about – your wedding, your personality and your story.

Until next time,
