So it seems along time since we first met with Zoe & Frankie for their engagement shoot and Zoe has kept a keen eye on our work over the year with the excitement building for her special day. Zoe & Frankie planned their special day to be held a Woodloands Lodge in the New Forest and what a stunning venue it is. Set back with a beautiful surrounding, this venue is the perfect hide away for any couple to plan their big day. The theme for the day was based around Frankie’s place of work, the London Underground. We really cannot wait to incorporate this into their album design which we will do in a few weeks.
We started the day with Zoe and her team of bridesmaids, who were getting ready at the hotel in one of the spacious suites they have to offer. It was a early start with hair & make up and here are some images we captured….
Frankie was getting ready up in the attic room of the hotel with his team of gents, I’d like to say they were as organised as the ladies but the time was catching up with them. They had been tasked with the important job of getting all the young groomsmen ready as well, which on paper is a easy task, but in reality can be a little stressful. The guys did a great job thou and here are a few images we captured of Frankie and preparation….
It was a quick tern around and straight back to the girl, who by this point were starting to make their final preparations and thinking about their dresses. It was still very calm but this was soon about to change and for me to start to get just a little bossy..... as you can imagine this is dangerous territory for a male photographer, some may call it suicide but luckily the girls were on side. It was also that time of the day that every bride has dreamed about for the years they have been planning this day. It was time the donning of the beautiful dress and for Zoe to take her final steps as a finance and to become a Mrs. Here are some images we created with Zoe and the girls...
The ceremony itself was just stunning and there was so much love in the air and smiles all round. We would just like to take this time to say a huge thank you to both Zoe & Frankie and for letting us be such a huge part of their journey. You guys have supported us so much with our business and it was just a huge honour to photograph and capture some absolutely amazing moments.
Don't worry thou, I think we got a little snap happy and there are many more images to view below. Here's to many more years of happiness and to the amazing new Mr & Mrs Carballeira.
Lots of love
