Hindu couple on engagement shootPin itI love a beach engagement shoot, its one of my favourite places to photograph, there is an element of romance, fun and quiet reflection that all takes place on the beach, as the waves crash or the tides goes out and you can walk on the slightly damp sand, it’s a beautiful feeling.

When Tayjal and Pritesh contacted me about their wedding, I knew it would be all kinds of lush. Tayjal owns Mani’s Creative Services, so being a creative herself, there were so many brilliant ideas around.

Tayjal and Prit are both a fun and very much in love couple, this reflects so well in their engagement photographs. When the beach came up as a suggested location for their pre-wed shoot, I was quick to respond with a YES lets do it but more importantly and even more quickly, Tayjal ordered her gorgeous blue dress that you see her wearing in the shoot. I do love colourful outfits during pre-wed shoots, especially if its a beach engagement shoot.

We started at the local park where Tayjal’s parents had their wedding photos taken in Ashton Under Lyne and then made our way to the beach. I had such a fantastic day with these two very lovely peeps, we even had props for the beach and lots of hashtags were created during the shoot and after the shoot, and we had some of the best weather on the day. A day on the beach with a gorgeous couple when the sun is shining, utter bliss. I do love my job.

I cannot wait to share with you their wedding photos, they are just lush. Meanwhile, here are some of my favourite images from the stunning beach engagement shoot.

Romantic portrait of french couplePin itSmall intimate weddings full of love, laughter and that warm fuzzy feeling. This was it. There is some sort of magic that happens when you put the French and the Yorkshire folk together. They ooze so much warmth and the jokes are just incredible. I must say there was definitely some competition between the two too, especially with the Tour De France being so close to the time.

Louisa and Francois had a lovely little wedding that took place at the Harrogate Registry office and was followed by a beautiful reception at the Kirk Hammerton village hall. There were lots of beautiful details that Louisa had planned for the day, but the best bit was definitely the paella wagon that served freshly made paella to all the guests, it was delicious.

Francois, as you may have guessed is French and the French do love their wine, so there was plenty of that too, plus the guests that came from France were such a delight, making the day so much fun and full of happy memories.

The van, well, just wait and see for yourself. This van turned into a make shift Photo Booth which was manned by their eldest son who was taking polaroids that would then hang on a bicycle wheel frame making it a guest book…

There were lots of sweeties and there was lots of tea too, the village hall looked beautiful with all the pompoms, flowers and lamps. There was beer/wine on the tap and a cake that was made of cheese…yum!

Here are some of my favourites from the day.
