With Covid-19 having had a severe impact on the wedding industry, I was overjoyed to when Hannah from Maple Rose Weddings asked me to be involved in capturing this engagement picnic at The Four Seasons Hampshire. From Hannah: “With all of the uncertainty surrounding weddings and what can and cannot happen during Summer 2020, I wanted to spread love and share some positivity in the form of a gorgeous engagement shoot“. As you will see below, this picnic was the perfect setting for a romantic proposal, showing couples that love does conquer all. Beautifully styled by proposal planner Hannah, the sweet story was a feast for the eyes, with The Four Seasons Hampshire, creating the perfect backdrop. As a Four Seasons Hampshire Wedding Photographer, I have no doubt that this engagement shoot will inspire many couples to get engaged and/or celebrate their intimate weddings at this beautiful hotel.
Four Seasons Hampshire Wedding Photographer:
Styled proposals, planned to perfection at dream venues like The Four Seasons Hampshire, will no doubt be one of the biggest trends of 2021. With smaller more intimate wedding celebrations on the horizon, couples will look to celebrate every milestone in their relationships, even more. Read here, why I feel that Engagement Shoots are now more important than ever.
Four Seasons Hampshire engagement picnic:
This vibrant engagement shoot was made possible through the work of a group of talented wedding suppliers. The Four Seasons Hampshire created a safe environment for us to work in while socially distanced. Hannah’s good friends Claire & Steve agreed to model for us. Using a real-life couple, wearing their own outfits brought more authenticity to the story. Claire also did her own hair & make up to ensure social distancing. More from Hannah: “After meeting in July 2016 whilst on holiday in Rhodes, the couple kept in touch and swiftly had their first date as a weekend away in Canterbury. Fast forward 4 years, Claire and Steve had the perfect proposal in Monaco and are now engaged with a gorgeous little girl to keep them busy. Being asked to be models for the shoot seemed a fun idea. Some ‘us time’ is always welcome. They also saw the shoot as a lovely opportunity to create some memories – something to look back on from this time as an engaged couple.”
With gorgeous floral design by Paula Rooney, the scene was set. This romantic engagement shoot is filled with proposal inspiration. Get in touch if you would like to book me as your Four Seasons Hampshire Wedding Photographer.
