This was quite simply a fantastic shoot. Fiona and Richard both studied Geography at university and they suggested that their university would be a perfect venue for their pre-wedding shoot. We therefore visited some of their favourite places from their student days. It was a glorious day in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside. Fiona had been so looking forward to this shoot and we really had fun as you can see from the photos. They were both so relaxed which made the shoot so enjoyable. I am photographing their wedding at Birtsmorton Court in Worcestershire in 2015 which is quite a long time ahead but I’m really looking forward to it.

As Fiona & Richard are such keen geologists I thought we’d better have one or two rock-related photos! πŸ˜€

And then on to the university library. Managed to sneak in and take one or two crafty ones. Fortunately my camera has a near-silent shutter – handy as it was a silent zone!
