Today I am excited to share the gorgeous Secret Herb Garden & Pentland Hills Engagement Shoot of Christine and Steve.
I have been privileged to know Christine for the last few years through her work as a wedding photographer and am greatly honoured to share this lovely pre wedding shoot as the days tick down to her and Steves October Wedding.
Images of the day were captured by Claire Fleck Photography.
Claire Fleck is an Edinburgh based wedding and lifestyle photographer.
For her, photography is about capturing an atmosphere, telling a story and creating a memory.
That’s why she loves photographing people and hearing their stories, providing people with memories that they can see real character in.
Her focus is on documenting the wedding day as it happens in real time, capturing the natural moments of emotion, nerves, joy and intimacy of this special time.
She says of the couple and their shoot…
“When I went to meet Steve and Christine I have to say I was a little nervous.”
“Christine is a super amazing photographer and I had only ever seen her work online – it felt a bit like I was meeting a celebrity.”
“However, we had a really chilled, lovely time together and these guy’s rocked having their photos taken.”
“We started our afternoon at The Secret Herb Garden for a cuppa and a scone.”
“As well as a great spot to relax, The Secret Herb Garden also hosts weddings, what an amazing venue!”
“Christine and Steve are getting married in a Poly tunnel at Colstoun House and Cookery School later this year so we thought it was the perfect place to meet and take some photos that will compliment their wedding style.”
“Despite the rain, we ventured up in to the Pentland hills for a walk where we were treated to a beautiful golden hour and stumbled across the Glencorse waterfall.”
I now hand over to Christine to share her love story…
“Steve and I met online in 2010 and moved in together 6 months later.”
“In 2015 we bought our first house together, and got engaged a few months later.”
“He proposed with a gorgeous ring which I LOVE at Knole park in Kent, before we went on a fabulous week away to France.”
“We now live in Coventry and we have two fur babies as our children, Riley, our whippet and Alfie, our pug.”
“We get married in 6 weeks at a fabulous new wedding venue called Colstoun House, in Haddington, East Lothian and we’re super excited.”
Thank you so much to Claire for sharing her outstanding imagery.
The images perfectly capturing the amazing countryside that Scotland has to offer, the exquisite golden hour light and the warmth and depth of the Christine and Steves connection…
