East Anglia pre-wedding photoshoot - Catherine and Allan

As award winning East Anglia wedding photographers, we always include a pre wedding shoot with every one of our wedding collections. It gives us a great opportunity to meet our couples in a relaxed environment near their home. And a chance to run through details of their wedding day.

In early September we caught up with Catherine and Allan to shoot their pre wedding photoshoot at the nature reserve in Alkborough Flats and at the Humber Bridge Park in Lincolnshire.


Alkborough Flats is a haven for wildlife. It’s a location that’s special to Catherine and Allan who enjoy an outdoor lifestyle and frequently enjoy walks there. It’s important in pre-wedding photo shoots that our couples are captured being themselves. That is how authentic portrait images like these can be achieved.

In fact, Catherine and Allan were so at ease that at times they seemed unaware of the camera, giving some of the images a paparazzi style.


The saying ‘couples who play together, stay together!’ comes to mind when looking at images of these two.

Many of our couples go on to use the photos in their wedding stationery on invitations and thank you cards.

After we’d got some great photographs at Alkborough Flats we whizzed over to Humber Bridge Park as we wanted to capture some romantic portrait images of Catherine and Allan with the sun setting over the Humber Bridge.

We got quite a few images, but this one is our favourite.

Catherine and Allan are getting married in Harkstead Church in Suffolk on followed by a reception at Harkstead Village Hall.

We enjoyed capturing Catherine and Allan’s pre-wedding photoshoot so much that we are really looking forward to telling the story of their wedding day even more!
