Christy & Alastair had their engagement shoot at Castle Ashby Gardens near Northampton. Christy used to visit Castle Ashby as a child so had lots of fond memories around the gardens. I adored the Orangery and potting sheds, the textures and rough-around-the-edges look is right up my street.
Christy wore a beautiful light blue, floral French Connection dress and Alastair’s red shirt really ‘popped’ in their pictures. What you wear in photos can make a huge difference to the overall look of the shoot – I always suggest wearing light, bright colours to lift your images.
Despite saying before the engagement shoot that they were not comfortable in front of the camera, particularly Alastair, the pair very quickly settled in to having their picture taken and were so natural together.
