Mike & Lucy's Pre-Wedding Shoot, Hampstead

A couple of weeks back I got to meet up with Mike & Lucy - a lovely couple from Hampstead who I had the pleasure to meet for the first time while shooting Olly and Kayleigh's big day at Sopley Mill in Dorset last year. After meeting up, grabbing a coffee and running through the itinerary for their wedding that's fast approaching at the end of May, we headed for Hampstead Hill Garden & Pergola - a place I'd never been to before but is known for being one of London’s hidden treasures.


After capturing a few causal snaps around the Pergola, we set off on a walk around the gardens to explore the endless possibilities the location offers for a few shots on Mike and Lucy's wedding day. Long avenues, grand staircases, stunning flowers and immaculately kept lawns. As locations for a wedding shoot go it really doesn't get much better!  

An hour or so later we retraced our steps, stopping off at a few different places on our way back just to grab a few more shots - some of my favourites can be found below. In just over a month I'll be heading back to Hampstead to document the day Mike and Lucy get hitched and I can't wait! Being quite a big wedding with over 150 guests, I'll be working alongside the talented Thom Law who's going to be my very competent assistant and second shooter. All that's left to say is roll on the 27th!
