Today I am delighted to share the lovely Marwell Zoo Engagement shoot of Rachel and Andrew.
I am all the more delighted as its their Wedding Day today, and to be able to share this wee gift with some special memories feels kind of nice.
Images of the day were captured by Hannah McClune Photography.
Marwell Wildlife, formerly known as Marwell Zoological Park, is a 140-acre zoo and registered charity situated at Owslebury near Winchester, Hampshire.
It is home to over 1,200 animals of 235 different species.
Beyond the park itself, the charity works for international conservation, with a particular focus in Africa in addition to work from its base in Hampshire.
Hannah McClune is a wedding photographer covering Berkshire and the surrounding counties.
She says “I just love weddings and being able to document couple’s celebrations is such a joy.”
“My enthusiasm and experience results in modern relaxed images of people having fun with those they love.”
Hannah says of the couple…
“Rachael and Andrew are getting married today, Saturday 24th May at Marwell Zoo.”
“We visited their wedding venue to explore and take their engagement pictures.”
“They hung out being in love at Marwell Zoo, saw a few penguins, had a few smooches, watched the zebras, had some cuddles, said hi to the lions, messed around a bit, visited the giraffes then stopped to reflect on the next time they would be there was on their wedding day”
“Not the standard engagement session, but oh so perfect for these two with their love of animals.”
“We were spoilt for choice with backdrops and if you look closely you may spot that quite a few of the animals were feeling the romance and smooching too!”
In Rachel, the Brides’s word the couple chose their unique venue because…
“We joked about it before we were engaged since we knew the zoo did weddings.”
“When it came to choosing a venue, we couldn’t think of anywhere better. we love animals, so why not?!”
Thank you to Hannah for sharing this beautiful Zoo Engagement shoot.
I love the natural setting, and the obvious passion the couple for both themselves and the animals.
I also love how the animals, especially the penguins and giraffes are getting in on the act with their own personal love shoot.
