Pre wedding – Abbi & Gil – Rookery Park
I was delighted when Simon from my business group 7amonth told me that his daughter Abigail was getting married in December and so looking for a wedding photographer. I love Winter weddings!
Abigail is a very sweet girl, engaged to Gil, they have known each other since University and been together for very long time. The first couple getting married of their group of friends – I expect it to be so much fun! Abbi proposed to do their pre wedding photos at the Rookery and Streatham Common, near where she and Gil are based, and it was a great idea, I have never been in that area of London and it’s really nice, especially with Autumn colours.
I enjoy doing engagement sessions, it’s very important to get to know each other before the wedding day, getting to know a bit about how they got together, their story, how the wedding day is going to be etc. Knowing the future bride and groom before hand help both the couple and us to be able of getting more relaxed portraits of them during their big day, one of the most important days of their lives:)
After the session we went to a lovely pub for a pint and chat about all details and anything that can be useful for us to know before the day. I spent a very nice afternoon with Abbi & Gil and know looking forward to their wedding day!
