Hannah and Jordan had their engagement shoot in June in the beautiful Primrose Hill in London. I’ve done a few weddings and engagement shoots in London now and I always love how different it is to my usual rural setting in Shropshire. I like starting off shoots in London in a park and then going on to use some of the city landscape as I don’t get to use it very often! Primrose Hill was the perfect spot for Hannah and Jordan’s engagement shoot, the hill itself is situation in Regents Park which is where we ventured to first to start the shoot.
Shooting in Chalcot Square
We made it up the hill itself and were able to see the beautiful London skyline. I love the contrast of the trees and greenery in the park to the urban landscape in the background. After we walked around the park for a while and I got a few snaps of Hannah and Jordan it started to rain really heavily. I don’t mind shooting in rain but as it looked like it was just a shower we decided to take cover under a couple of umbrellas and a tree until it died down. Thankfully we were right and we decided to make our way to the nearby colourful houses of Chalcot Square, Hannah informed me that this is where Paddington had been filmed, I really love Paddington so I loved that connection. This was the part of the shoot that I was most looking forward to, we don’t have anything like this in Shropshire so I was in my element photographing Hannah and Jordan in front of these gorgeous houses. We didn’t dwell too long here as I’m very aware that the residents of these homes probably get a lot of tourists popping by to take photos! It’s definitely somewhere I’d like to go back to next time I’m in London, there were lots of lovely shops in this area that I unfortunately didn’t have time to pop into while I was there.
While I was shooting Hannah and Jordan told me all about their plans for their wedding. They got married in The Heath House in Staffordshire, which is where Hannah is from and where Hannah’s family still lives. It was lovely to hear about how they met and also about their jobs, I always love finding out what my couples do for a living as it’s such a huge part of your life. After the shoot we made our way back to the train station together and I said goodbye to Hannah and Jordan on the underground. On my way back to Telford I had a quick look through the photos and was so excited to get home and edit them, this is always a sign of a good shoot!
Keep your eyes peeled for Hannah and Jordan’s wedding on the blog soon!
