Wendover Woods Pre-Wedding

Café in the Woods

Terri and Matt booked me a year ago to shoot their wedding at Woburn Abbey and had been humming and haring for many months on where to have their pre-wedding shoot. Well, the wedding was getting closer and they eventually decided to go to the place which they had originally thought of, that being Wendover Woods, on the edge of The Chiltern Hills, in Buckinghamshire. It’s a very beautiful 800 acre wood owned by the Forestry Commission. We agreed to meet in the centre of the woods at the marvelous Café in the Woods.

Walk in the Woods

Earlier in the day I’d stopped off at The Inn in Woburn to have a tour of the Woburn Abbey grounds in preparation for Terri & Matt’s wedding in a few weeks time. I’d then driven to Wendover Woods to meet them so that we could discuss all their photographic wedding requirements before we took a short walk to get some photographs of them relaxing for their pre-wedding shoot.

Three’s a Crowd

They have an 18 month old son who will be a page boy at their wedding. They’d asked me if it would be okay for them to bring him along to their pre-wedding shoot. I’d said of course, no problem. When I’m not photographing weddings I’m taking photographs of children so it was a great opportunity to combine the two. After being left out of the photographs initially he started to cry for attention, so the shoot then concentrated on him. I think he stole the show!

Below are a selection of photographs from the day.

If you are planning on getting married in or around Buckinghamshire I’d love to hear from you.
