I met Cydne and Clayton at the magnificent Beechwood Gardens yesterday afternoon for their engagement shoot.

We were so very lucky with the weather. It was clear the whole day, and then it rained on my drive to the gardens. Luckily the sky cleared just as I got there! It did however mean that the ground was pretty wet, but that didn’t matter.

Beechwood Gardens is such a beautiful place! I’ve been dying to do a couple shoot there, after going there for a few events in the past. I could have spent hours in the gardens! There were just so many spots to explore, from the sunken formal garden to the lily ponds, the open grass, the old tennis court, and the most amazing veggie garden, this place is a treasure! It was so very special to have the whole garden all to ourselves.

We headed for the formal sunken garden first. I love the lane behind the garden with the benches and the pillars covered in rambling roses.

The sun shining through these huge iron gates caused such gorgeous flare.

We ended the photo shoot in the formal vegetable gardens in front of the most gorgeous doors.

We couldn’t finish the engagement shoot without a shot of the ring 🙂
