The image shown below was taken at the Roswell Pitts nature reserve in Ely, Cambridgeshire.

It’s a beautiful setting and has views of magnificent Ely Cathedral in the background.


We then headed closer to the Cathedral to take some photos there. Ely cathedral has great significance to this couple, as it is where Chris proposed to Cathy.


Pre-wedding, or Engagement photoshoots are increasing in popularity as they are such a great idea. Couples often tell us that they don’t like images of themselves or feel uncomfortable when a camera is pointed at them.

Having a pre-wedding photoshoot is a great opportunity to overcome those worries so that on the wedding day it isn’t an issue.

Many of our previous pre-wedding shoot couples go on to use the images in their wedding stationery.


We kept things light and fun so it looked like we were just capturing a young couple enjoying a walk in the great outdoors.

It was such a great opportunity to get to know Cathy and Chris a little before we photograph their wedding in March. They’ll be getting married at Fordham Congregational Church and having a reception at The Old Hall in Ely. We can’t wait to tell the story of their wedding with beautiful and timeless photographs.
