Earlier this month I went over to the beautiful Welsh coastline for a pre-wedding shoot with the lovely Luke & Natalie.
Luke and Natalie live in Telford in Shropshire and are getting married at the fabulous Rowton Castle in Shrewsbury, Shropshire next month; however Barmouth located in Snowdonia on the coastline of Mid Wales holds some very special memories for them.
Natalie has visited Barmouth frequently from childhood as her grandfather owns a caravan overlooking the sea, so when she met Luke she was excited to introduce him to a place that holds very special memories for her. Luke also fell in love with Barmouth so they started holidaying there together whenever they got free time.
When it came to the proposal, Luke had already decided that the beach would be the ideal location for the big moment. So he planned a BBQ one summer’s evening in a nice, secluded spot on the beach, nestled into a small cavern in the rocks. Luke spoke about his increasing anxiety right before he planned to pop the question, as Natalie had decided on an impromptu visit back to the caravan to get something and then stopped and chatted to everyone on her way back! When she finally returned, ever the gentleman, Luke got down on one knee, and the rest as they say is history!
Suffice to say, when planning Luke & Natalie’s pre-wedding shoot, it made perfect sense to shoot it back at their special place on the Welsh coastline.
Here’s a few photos from Luke and Natalie’s pre-wedding shoot at Barmouth beach. I cannot wait to photograph their big day at Rowton Castle next month!
I love this shot of Luke carrying his wife to be on the beach x
Although his first attempt didn’t go so well!
And here they are practicing their first dance!
