Not too long ago Evelyn & Ross opted to have their pre wedding photography at Westonbirt Arboretum in Gloucestershire. I don’t take any credit for that, as it was their idea to tie the shoot in with the changing Autumnal leaves. Having been to the Arboretum a few times before I knew how pretty the landscape would be, but I was blown away that day by the display of colour – they’d timed it perfectly! Clearly a lot of people knew about it too, as there was a long queue to get in to the car park first thing in the morning. With so many people around one of the challenges was going to be keeping the crowds out of shot, as it must surely have been one of the busiest days of the year.

Evelyn & Ross brought ‘Raffles’ their rescue dog along for the day as it’s a popular spot for dog walkers, so we headed out for a stroll along the paths through Silk Wood. The Old Arboretum is where the real splash of colour is though, so after dropping Raffles off in the car (sorry Raff – no dogs allowed in that area of the park), we went off to explore the opposite side of the grounds for some shots around the Japanese maples, and one rather big tree – you’ll have to excuse my lack of tree knowledge, it was just humungus…

Evelyn and Ross will be getting married around the same time next year, holding their reception at The Square Club in Bristol, and I’m very much looking forward to it!
