Welcome, welcome to my first ever blog post! Oh and it’s a good’n.

Earlier this year I ran a competion on my facebook page for one lucky couple to win a shoot with me… Here are the winners!

Jess & James were a little nervous at first about being photographed (I mean who isn’t, right?!) but as the day went on they totally relaxed and rocked this shoot.

James designed Jess’s ring himself, how awesome! It’s made of an unpolished emerald in an ornte band, looking both antique and incredibly beautiful. I felt Castle Ashby’s Oragney was the perfect reflection of this with its elegant architecture and overgrowing greenery. Also the blossoms trees were an absolute bonus!

On the way there, as per usual I took a wrong turn and found some gorgeous yellow flower fields, which was the perfect way to end our shoot.

Take a scroll through the day, I promise you’ll be dying to visit Castle Ashby by the end of it…
