Spring Pre-wedding Photoshoot at Loughborough’s Whatton Gardens
If you read the 1940’s vintage pre-wedding shoot at Loughborough’s Grand Central Station, this is part 2 of the pre-wedding shoot.
It is good to change outfit and/ or location to give the shoot variety and maintain interest. After the very urban- if vintage – look of the station we wanted somewhere more natural and chose Whatton Gardens near Loughborough.
They are great in all seasons. and offer a great variety of settings. I usually advise to keep with natural colours when shooting in nature, something soft and colours that suit the skin tone, so when I saw Meetal’s bright, glamorous yellow dress I wondered how it would work .
But it was spring and there were many yellow flowers. Nature was bright and glamorous too.The front of the house stayed in tone with the vintage feel, and Dee’s cap was the perfect prop. The entrance to the gardens has interesting features in itself, arches make wonderful frames, and it’s a challenge to use them in a variety of ways.
The gardens are vast and have many interesting features: bridges, ponds, benches, not mentioning trees from all over the world and secluded mini-gardens Shade gives a much softer feel than full sun and buildings that are indoor/outdoor are perfect for all light conditions. Whatton Gardens were the perfect fit for Meetal and Dee’s vintage engagement theme, a great complement to the first part at the Steam railway station.
What theme would you have if you were doing a shoot? it doesn’t have to be an engagement- all occasions are great!
