Christian & Kirsty | Angoulême Engagement Shoot

Christian & Kirsty get married next month at beautiful Chateau de la Couronne in the Charente region of South-West France. I can’t wait to get back there again, it’s the most fairytale wedding venue (take a look at Kathryn & Gui’s wedding there last year!).

Just before Christmas I met Christian and Kirsty in the beautiful old city of Angoulême for their pre-wedding shoot – a chance for us to get to know each other ahead of the wedding, and for them to get more comfortable in front of the camera. We had such a lovely afternoon wandering the cobbled backstreets of old Angoulême, stopping for a quick cappuccino to chat over the wedding plans, and finishing up at the beautiful tree-lined promenade and ramparts at the edge of the city, as dusk was falling. It was brilliant to get to know Christian and Kirsty and hear more of their story and wedding plans. Building a rapport (or I prefer the more genuine term – friendship!) with my couples is really important to me as it makes a huge difference to how they feel on the wedding day, resulting in more fun, and better photos!  I can’t wait to celebrate Christian & Kirsty’s wedding with them and see what beautiful photos we create together!
