Claire and Richards Worcestershire Pre Wedding Shoot

When Claire and Richard get married at the end of May this year it will mean another trip back to gorgeous Stanbrook Abbey in Worcestershire to photograph their wedding. This makes me happy!

I first met up with Claire and Richard about 9 months or so ago, following recommendations from a couple of lovely people (thank you Duncan and Michelle) and this weekend we met up again for a little 'pre wedding' shoot in one of my old haunts growing up... the Lickey Hills near Longbridge in Birmingham.

It was really lovely to go back again (I probably haven't been there in 15 years). I have many stories of deeds that took place here (both good and bad) during my formative years so it really did bring back many many memories. I must say though, the early start wasn't overly wonderful... I am most definitely not a morning person (thank you for the coffee Claire and Richard... it made all the difference!).

Here are a few shots of a really lovely couple, in the location of their engagement and also a very special place for me growing up.
