In the lavender fields..


You guys know I’m crazy about colour, so you can imagine how excited I was for this shoot! When Chloe suggested a few months back that we did their engagement shoot in a lavender field I was like oh HELL YES! To be totally honest, I didn’t even really know there were any lavender fields in Yorkshire! So this was super exciting.

Ellis managed to find out about Wolds Way Lavender farm just outside of Malton. Although these guys live over towards Hull, they’ll be celebrating their wedding in Harrogate next year at Rudding Park. Malton worked as a nice spot more or less half way between the two.

When we got there, it was just SO lovely! It was so much bigger than I thought it would be, and the lavender was just BEAUTIFUL. There was so much of the stuff, and as you can probably imagine, the smell was amazing!

Chloe and Ellis were absolute naturals in front of the camera. They were such a pleasure to photograph and it was so nice to chat to them and find out all about their plans for the wedding day! Chloe had on the most beautiful summer dress, and Ellis looked very dapper in his blue shirt. Even though the shoot was on the hottest day ever, they absolutely smashed it and didn’t even break a sweat! I’m not sure I can say the same for myself however!!

I’m so excited to photograph these two again in March when they celebrate their wedding at Rudding Park in Harrogate. I have a sneaky suspicion that lavender is going to be a bit of a feature in the wedding as well… Well, not so much a suspicion, more that Chloe told me herself!!

Thank you guys for such an awesome shoot! Same time next year?
