Last weekend saw us heading over to Oxford for Tina & Garrick's Engagement shoot and a little catch up to see how the wedding plans were coming along. I first met Tina a couple of years ago when she was a Bridesmaid for one of my couples, Daniela & Steve, so I was super happy when she got in touch for me to document her wedding! They're set to tie the knot at one of our favourite venues, The Great Barn, next July. It's a beautifully rustic yet light filled barn venue, completely surrounded by lush Oxfordshire countryside.
We spent the morning with Tina & Garrick in the quaint little village of Fritwell. It was such a peaceful place, with lots of pretty spots for pictures. We even took some shots of them on the very same bench that Garrick first asked Tina to be his girlfriend. It was really sweet! Tina rocked her Engagement shoot outfit, a little bit bridal and whole lot stylish, all tied in beautifully with a glamorous swipe of Jeffree Star eye make up. Gorgeous!
And can I just take a moment to say how much I loved that Garrick brought his Tractor?!! It's one of two Tractors that he owns, purely as a hobby, and not only did it make for some great pictures of them both but it was also a lot of fun to include in the shoot. I'd definitely say to anyone who is a little apprehensive about an Eshoot that combining it with something you're passionate about is such a wonderful idea. Whether it's having the shoot in a location that you adore and have history with, bringing along the family dog or, like Garrick, incorporating your passion or hobby into it, then go for it!! Your wedding day is a reflection of you as a couple, so it only makes sense that your Eshoot is too.
We're super excited to see these two lovely humans say "I do" next summer but in the meantime here's a few of our favourite shots from their engagement shoot....
