It has always been a dream of mine to photograph a bride and groom in a lavender field. One day I hope it will be in the lavender meadows of Provence, but until then I’m happy to have found this little piece of France in Cheshire 🙂 For the final part of Yasmin & Andalib’s summer post-wedding shoot they braved the bee-filled lavender; we had fun playing with the light on Yasmin’s beautiful lace mantilla; and set up a romantic & pretty vintage-style picnic. It was one of those perfect summer days, and as the sun went down it bathed the lavender field in a dreamy golden haze… you could certainly imagine you were in the south of France 😉

With thanks to the Swettenham Arms for allowing us to shoot in their gorgeous lavender field!
