“The care and attention that went into all the shots was phenomenal.”

Michelle found me via Twitter and I am so glad she did! Michelle & Nick are just super lovely. They had an engagement shoot with me before the wedding, which took place at Regent’s Park on the boating lake.

I think engagement shoots really help in the lead up to the wedding day as they allow you to see how I work and also help you to be fully relaxed on the wedding day. Michelle said:

“We had an engagement shoot with Charli in Regents Park, and she made us feel completely relaxed and completely understood us a couple.”

Michelle and Nick had their wedding at Spains Hall Estate, Finchingfield, Essex (now home to Jamie and Jools Oliver). Bridal preparations took place in the cosy Crest Lodge, followed by a ceremony and reception in the barn. Post-ceremony drinks were served in the gardens and everyone had so much fun playing the lawn games and soaking up the atmosphere.

We made the most of the grounds for the couple portrait sessions and were thoroughly spoilt as there are so many nice areas to choose from!

Michelle joined me back at Spains Hall Estate after her wedding as a Real Bride featuring in a Styled Inspiration Bridal Shoot that I had organised. You can see more photos from that shoot here.
