You may remember I ran a competition a while back to win your complete wedding photography package with Cassandra Lane Photography. You voted in droves and the lucky winners were Maddy and Simon! They’ve just had their love shoot in the run up to their August wedding.
Maddy says: “Last Saturday, we had a very excitable engagement shoot. Simon and I are not shy in talking about where we live – after all, it’s not your average home, being a houseboat – and so we jumped at the chance to invite Cassandra, and Marian her second shooter, round to our home. They were suitably impressed! After we’d made the all important introduction to Star the cat, we cracked on with the shooting, and we couldn’t stop laughing! It was a lot of fun.”
“I had found some of my favourite fancy dress props for us to wear – I’m a big fancy dress fan, and consequently I make Simon dress up for parties too, which I think he secretly loves. I fulfilled a teenage dream and did a silly Kate-and-Leo Titanic impression on the top deck – I think this was one of my favourite shots – Cassandra told me I looked giddy with excitement! Afterwards, we walked to nearby Battersea Park, where luckily the weather held off and it felt very romantic. After the shoot was over, Simon and I felt quite emotional – heaven knows what we’re going to be like on our wedding day! Thank you so much to Cassandra (and Marian) for offering such a fantastic prize, and thanks to Under the Vintage Veil for being so lovely that I could enter the competition in the first place!”
