Dave & Claire had their Bristol engagement photography session at the beautiful Dyrham Park, a 17th century house and garden in South Gloucestershire. With over 270 acres of parkland on the estate, we had lots of opportunities to capture some beautiful and romantic couple portraits as we wandered around the grounds.
I have always thought that Dyrham Park would be a fantastic place for an engagement shoot, and so I was delighted when they mentioned it was one of their favourite places to visit. They also enjoyed one of their first dates here, so it seemed to be the perfect location all round.
It was the most glorious morning when I met Dave & Claire for a cuppa in the tea garden at Dyrham Park ahead of their Bristol engagement photography shoot. It was so lovely to spend time with them, chat about how they met and discuss their wedding day plans. An early start also meant we had the place to ourselves and the beautiful morning sunshine made it ideal for taking portraits.
With over 270 acres of parkland on the estate, we had lots of opportunities to capture some beautiful and romantic couple portraits as we wandered around the grounds. There are amazing views across Bristol, as well as landscaped gardens and beautiful wild areas with long grasses and trees. We walked, talked and took photos as we strolled through the park, ending up by one of the viewpoints with a spectacular old tree, overlooking the beautiful English countryside below. By this time, we were joined by a large herd of fallow deer that roam freely around the park during the day. It was a fun end to a lovely couple of hours with Dave & Claire.
An engagement shoot is a great way for us all to get to know each other, ahead of the wedding day. It’s important we build a connection and that you as the couple feel completely at ease and relaxed in front of the camera. This is why I always include an engagement photography shoot within my wedding photography pricing options. You can also check out more of my engagement photography portfolio here.
