Halstead Public gardens set in rural North Essex is an excellent location for a pre wedding photo shoot. It is a truly beautiful public gardens with lots of colourful flower beds, magnificent specimen trees, traditional wooden benches a picturesque pond and a band stand.
I met up there with Joy and Sam one Saturday morning a few weeks ago to do a pre wedding photo shoot, this was a great opportunity for the three of us to get to know each other before their wedding at Hedingham Castle in a few weeks time. It was one of those glorious days when the sun was shining and all around was peaceful and calm, there was a little cloud cover and all in all it was a great day for photography.
Joy and Sam are a fantastic couple who only live a fairly short distance away on the other side of Halstead. Sam in particular is quite a character with his Mohican haircut, goatee beard and his pierced ears. They were both really enthusiastic and totally immersed themselves in the photo session. After a while we had a few members of the public watching what was going on and I think Joy and Sam really enjoyed the attention.
A selection of some of my favourite images from the day can be seen below. Please do leave a comment if you can.
