Woodbury Common, Devon
If I’m completely honest, when I first heard that ‘pre-wedding photoshoots’ were a thing part of me cringed at the thought of staged PDAs and awkwardness as people watch on! Despite this, we did think the photoshoot would be a good practise for the real thing — we both dislike the thought of us being the centre of attention… but I guess our wedding day has to be the one exception!
We planned to meet our photographer, Helen, at a place we would ordinarily go for a walk, so it made it a bit more ‘real’. She made us feel comfortable really quickly (apart from the few shots where we were sat on prickles!) — I think you’re always critical of yourself, but many of the photos are lovely and we are so happy with how the shoot went. We did initially say that we prefer more natural shots over staged ones, but Helen got a really good balance of both. She also had to put up with our slightly immature sense of humour at times!
The photoshoot has given us some great memories and we definitely feel a lot more prepared for our wedding day. I’m pretty sure Mart thinks he is a professional model now though… he puts me to shame! Lol! Anyway, enjoy the show 😉

S p r i n g — my favourite time of the year!
I am SO looking forward to blue skies, greenery, beautiful flowers, long walks and the feeling of warm sunshine on my face 🙂 Lighter evenings also mean the day doesn’t end as quickly, so spontaneous trips to the seaside after work become the regular thing to do – I absolutely love it! I really do believe that the sun (and weather in general) can have such an impact on your mood.
I must admit I have been feeling a little overwhelmed recently (can you ever just be ‘whelmed’?!) There are some very exciting things happening at the moment which does make me think that negative thoughts are completely silly! That can often be the worst part – failing to understand why I am feeling this way when I have so much to look forward to. I do sometimes struggle to remember that those moments will pass and emotions are only temporary. I cant help it if I’m highly strung… haha!!
We’re currently waiting for our new home to be built and I am so keen for it to be ready so we can move house! I’m very much looking forward to the design and décor part and doing lots of shopping for homeware. YASSS 🙂
I’ve also been keeping busy with wedding planning and last month it was my turn to pop the question(s)! I asked three very special ladies to be my bridesmaids and thankfully they all accepted. I will be so happy to have them by my side when I become Mrs. T… only 381 days to go!!
