Alex and James had their pre wedding shoot in the tiny village of Irnam near Grantham. Alex will be getting ready at her parents house in the village and getting married just around the corner at St Andrew’s church. It was great to meet Alex and James and chat about their wedding, they were really relaxed on the shoot and just went with the flow even when I had them climbing through a corn field! As a portrait photographer I love going to new places and searching out textural backdrops and unique objects to add interest to my portrait photography, I do think people think I’m a bit crazy sometimes especially when I get over excited about long grass and rusty railings etc! We met at the little church which was beautiful and surrounded by old stone walls and hidey holes. Their was an old lamppost in the trees like the one in the lion, the witch and the wardrobe. James started to climb the lamppost followed by spontaneous skipping down the drive, it was at this point when I thought, I’m going to really enjoy working with this couple! We walked through the village and ended up in a corn field, which was brilliant and I took too many pictures! When we were walking back we saw the farmer heading out to cut the corn, we got there just in time. Enjoy the pictures, I’m really looking forward to their wedding at Harlaxton Manor in a few weeks time.
