Kelly & Nick chose to have their engagement shoot at Lake Vyrnwy, this was where they had one of their first dates. I love when couples choose a place that’s special to them for their engagement shoot, it has so much more meaning and usually means there are certain areas that are particularly special to the couple.
I met Kelly & Nick at Lake Vyrnwy Hotel which was a great meeting point! We hit it off straight away, it was the first time we’d met after they had booked me for their wedding and we got on so well it was lovely! The views at Lake Vyrnwy are absolutely breath taking, in the UK we tend to forget we have such beauty right on our doorstep! It definitely helped that it was such a gorgeous day too!
As we walked down from the hotel towards the lake we started having a chat about Kelly and Nick’s wedding plans when we were walking past some lambs. Kelly went over to them and started petting one of them, they were so friendly! Then we got on to our shared love of all animals, especially dogs! And I was absolutely over the moon to learn that Kelly and Nick’s family dogs are going to be at their wedding! I’m pretty dog obsessed so dogs at weddings are pretty much the best thing ever in my opinion!
For their shoot Kelly wore a really gorgeous blue dress which worked really well with the location, she almost blended in to the beautiful blue of the lake! After we’d been a good way around the lake having a good chat and getting some lovely photographs of Kelly and Nick, they said they’d like to go to a waterfall that they’d been to previously. I didn’t know anything about this waterfall having only been to Lake Vyrnwy once before but I was absolutely up for finding out! We went back to the Hotel and jumped into Kelly and Nick’s car so they could drive us round to the waterfall. It was a bit of a trek from the car park and involved precariously stepping on some rocks but oh boy was it worth it!
I loved Kelly and Nick’s engagement shoot so much and getting to know them as a couple. It turns out we both have a love for film, dogs and Zooey Deschanel, ideal couple right here!
