There is something oddly romantic about wandering around a museum so I thrilled to share this spectacular Natural History Museum Engagement Shoot.
Taking in all the history seems to seep into your senses and its the perfect place to share with someone you love.
Images were captured by Andy at Peacock Obscura Photography.
I hand over to gorgeous Bride Emma who tell us all about themselves and their day…
Tell us a wee bit about yourselves…
“I (Emma) have just finished a PhD in Chimpanzee Welfare and Ben, my fiance works at Rolls-Royce as a Mechanical Engineer.”
“We are both massive geeks and love animals, especially our 10 year old staffy called Seamus who we rescued earlier this year.”
“We also love travelling, trying new varieties of gin and are currently having ballroom dancing lessons ahead of the big day.”
How did you meet as a Couple?
“We both went to Homerton College at the University of Cambridge and met at WaffSoc, a society where people got together to eat waffles!”
“We were friends for many years and then started dating in 2012.”
When did you get engaged?
“We got engaged on 21st March 2015. Ben had organized for me to drive a steam train in the Peak District as a surprise Christmas present.”
“After that we went to a near-by petting zoo and he proposed by the Meerkat enclosure (Ben’s favourite animals). ”
When are you getting married?
“We’re getting married on 17th June 2017.”
Why did you choose this location or concept for your Engagement shoot?
“We decided that we wanted to recreate our first date when we went to the Natural History Museum, in London, and then ate some froyo.”
“The museum is somewhere we’ve both loved since we were children and I was lucky enough to do some work experience there back in 2004.”
“It is such a beautiful place and we knew that Andy would be able to capture some of that beauty in his photographs. ”
“As it happens, Andy had never visited before, which excited me as I got to play tour guide!”
Thank you so much to Andy for sharing this amazing Natural History Museum Engagement Shoot.
The museum cares for more than 80 million specimens spanning billions of years and aims to challenge how people think about the natural world.
What an incredible place to create a little bit of history for you.
