This was my first time meeting Peter and Alex so we started at the coffee shop in Scotney Castle to discuss ideas, likes and dislikes. After a good natter we set off into the grounds to take some photos.
These shoots are a great way to get to know each other, and often make for a great ice-breaker before the big day. I personally like to do the engagement shoots quite close to the wedding as it helps the bride and groom to feel more comfortable more quickly on the wedding day itself, and avoids that rabbit in the headlights look!
Anyway, back to business. Scotney Castle is located in Lamberhurst, Kent and is national trust run. On a fair day it really is a beautiful location to take engagement photos. We were very lucky with the weather as you can see and spent a fun couple of hours expiring the castle grounds.
Here is a selection from the day.
