We love starting our couple shots with you walking towards us pretending to be tipsy, this is the perfect way to get you relaxed in front of the camera whilst getting stunning candid wedding photos. What better place to do this than on the lawn with the beautiful manor house in the background and let’s not forget the swing that adds even more fun to the couple shots.
