Today I am excited to share this gorgeous railway and 1940s inspired Engagement shoot.
Loughbrough Grand Central Station was the setting for the shoot and images were captured by Lumiere Photography.
I hand over to Alix Marina-Chouhan of Lumiere who talks about her work and shares her recollections of the day…
“I am a French born, but now Leicestershire based Wedding Photographer, covering all of the UK”
“Life is beautiful and Photography is my way to celebrate each moment, each person, seeking out beauty and emotion, shooting from the heart.”
“My clients too are people from all origins and cultures. They don’t always follow the beaten track, they travel, discover and learn.”
“They are creating their own lives with true hearts, creativity and intelligence and very often we become good friends.”
“I love people first, finding out what they like, exploring new ideas, going on adventures with them.”
“It doesn’t have to be especially offbeat or creative, just true to them, so can be very traditional- whatever the tradition- or very alternative, as long as the emotion is there, and that is reflected in the photography.”
“The couple in this shoot are Meetal and Dee, and I was thrilled when they announced they wanted to do a 1940s inspired Engagement shoot as its an amazing era.”
“The Great Central Railway is the UK’s only double track, main line heritage railway, and is the only place in the world where full size steam engines can be seen passing each other – just as it was when steam ruled the rails.”
“So this made it the perfect location to make new history in a place with such a strong historical background.”
“Meetal’s outfits were so on point for the theme and her make up stunning (she is an MUA herself – Make Up by M) and we really had fun recreating days of the past.”
Thank you so much to Alix for allowing me to share this beautiful 1940′s inspired Engagement shoot.
There is something incredibly romantic about the railway and thoughts go back to days gone by and waving off your love to the War.
Meetal and Dee look like they really had fun with the theme and Alix has captured come gorgeous imagery.
