Warwickshire Engagement Photography | Andrew & Mel

bonbon_photography-andrew_mel-henley-in-arden_engagement_0001

We are quite fond of these guys. They’ve welcomed us into their home, put up with Finley playing with Christmas decorations, and on one fine Sunday afternoon showed us round their beautiful village of Henley-in-Arden during their Warwickshire engagement photography. We were treated to some very, very good local ice cream (Andrew was right, believe the hype about Henley Ice Cream) and then burned the calories off exploring the reserve just behind their house – a favourite walking spot for these guys.

You’d be hard pressed to find more warm and welcoming people. Constantly making us and each other laugh, they are a beautiful match. They also have the best honeymoon plans we’ve heard so far – travelling to Borneo to see the Orangutans! We can’t wait to get to meet their friends & family on the wedding day, which we know is going to reflect their lovely nature. Also, how stunning is Mel going to look!

Derby Arboretum Park Engagement | James & Charlotte

bonbon_photography-james_charlotte_engagement_arboretum-01

We hit Derby Arboretum for James & Charlotte’s engagement session, arriving just as the sun was going down. Cue amazing evening light. The Arboretum is a nice park, always brimming with people and has a real community feel. History buffs will appreciate that it was Britain’s first public park – but that’s not really what makes this place special to these guys.

This is the spot where James proposed to Charlotte, so it was quite fitting to return here to mark this important point in their history together. In-front-of-camera nerves dissipated as they piggybacked, climbed, hugged, made faces, laughed, kissed and held each other through the park to end up surveying ‘their’ place from atop of the climbing rock.

These guys are tying the knot this Saturday, woohoo! And weather permitting they’ll be back at the Arboretum picnicking and surrounded by their friends & family. We can’t wait.

Yes, James is a very handsome looking fellow, and you might recognise him as one of the singers from stellar wedding & event party band The Distractions. Check these guys out if you get a chance – we can attest to the fact they’re flipping good, having witnessed them create some hot & heavy dance floor action at Dave & Ruth’s wedding back in March.

Rugeley Farm Engagement | Tom & Ellie

bonbon_photography-tom_ellie-engagement-056

Tom’s family connections brought us to this friendly farmstead near Rugeley where we spent an evening photographing these two amongst bright machinery and curious farm animals. There was even a bit of time to grab some impromptu photos of Colin & little Isla who live on the farm and came out to invite us inside for a cup of tea once we were done.

Tom & Ellie have been together since secondary school but have spent recent years living in different towns while studying. It’s hard to imagine the joy and excitement they must be feeling to have finished uni, with their wedding to look forward to (this Saturday!), knowing that they’ll never have to be apart again.

They say distance makes the heart grow fonder, and yes while there was a bit of hugging and kissing going on it was the fun and joy that Tom & Ellie had together that really demonstrated the love and friendship these guys share. Like the running race which ended with Tom pushing Ellie over (cheat!), the robust but somewhat affectionate straw fight, and the general joking and enjoyment that goes with being your true self around someone who knows you truly.

If these photos are anything to go by, Ellie’s going to make a drop-dead gorgeous bride, and Tom, well despite claims of spoiling every photo with chronic squinty camera eyes, turned out to be a pretty handsome chap to photograph.

Kaz White - These are stunning. Such a mad setting for a photo shoot – worked brilliantly. Kim and Chan you have a magic way of capturing people simply being themselves. Hope the big day goes well :)

Emma White - I love these the laughter the amazing way you captured all the details of the location and their obvious fun loving personalities!! Jade Webb would have loved all those animals on an engagement shoot!! ;) xxxx

Foremark Reservoir Family Photography

bonbon_photography-rice_family-_0006

We met up with these guys early one brilliant sunny morning at a favourite family spot. We’d never visited Foremark Reservoir before – in fact we’d never even heard of it until Alison mentioned that Oliver loved it there – but we soon saw the attraction. Yeah you can go sailing and fishing on the reservoir, and the play area’s cool. But the best thing is the sand. It’s almost beach-like in quality – semi-golden, soft (enough) – and for a few sweet moments we forgot that we live in one of the places in the UK that’s furthest from the ocean. It was also a great spot to hang out, dig around and take photos.

We loved seeing Oliver’s personality shine through as he showed off acorn cups he had collected and went on a mission to throw the biggest rocks he could find into the water. Dave & Alison are expecting their next addition to the family very soon. We wish them all the best!

Thanks Rice family for introducing us to a favourite place. We’ll be visiting again soon!

New Zealand Trip 2014 | Through Our iPhones

Our trip back to New Zealand in Jan/Feb seems like a distant memory now. Did we imagine it? Nope, and there’s plenty of photo evidence as proof. Like loads of iPhone photos that if you’re feeling so inclined, you can scroll through below.

Trip highlights included meeting Kim’s nephew for the first time, white water rafting on the Tongariro River, shooting two amazing summer weddings, drinking lots of NZ coffee and catching up with our friends the Bakers in Abu Dhabi on the return journey. Highlights did not include travelling on a plane with an 18 month old whose world was suddenly reduced to two adjacent seats!
