Si-Wan & Jon | Pre-wedding shoot at Castle Ashby
Updated: Jul 29, 2018
Castle Ashby is one of my favourite locations to shoot at. Based in Northampton, the estate contains beautiful sculptures, scenic gardens of various styles, and a picturesque house. It's ideal for a variety of shoots, let alone a pre-wedding shoot. So when I was approached by Si-Wan to suggest a location, I didn't hesitate.
'We meet 6 years ago through a mutual friend who was organising a Bank Holiday weekend trip in Wales. Although there were 10 of us there, and having not known each other previously, we become good friends, and would speak often after the trip was over, and would chat about our mutual passion; travelling. It was 10 months before we started dating, and have been travelling to many countries ever since.'
'Jon proposed in Iceland, under a blanket of stars in the sky. Iceland is a beautiful country, and with picture perfect sunsets, amazing waterfalls and stunning scenery, the proposal was the perfect ending to an unforgettable trip, even if the northern lights didn't come out, like he had hoped for. We are already legally married as we had a small ceremony at the registry office with our closest friends. But will be having a larger event in September with a traditional Chinese style banquet for all our friends and family. It will be crazy and manic, but I have no doubt it will also be a lot of fun, and a night to remember. '
They are off to honeymoon in New Zealand and Bali in October and I can't wait to see their updates!
I wish them nothing but a lifetime of happiness as they embark on their journey together. Hopefully, my pictures will help them relive the moment for decades to come. If you, like Si-Wan & Jon, want to immortalize your Happy Ever After, why not drop me a message? I'm flexible to your needs. After all this is your day, not mine.
