Country Park Engagement Shoot at Braintree and Bocking Public Gardens

Country park engagement shoot

The photographs below are all from Billie and Mitchells country park engagement shoot at Braintree and Bocking Public Gardens. The shoot was late summer and gave us some lovely warm sunlight to work with combined with a couple full of laughter and smiles made for a great shoot. We are fortunate to have so many great country parks and locations for engagement shoots all around Essex and all over the UK so finding a great place for engagement shoots is very easy. The great thing about Braintree and Bocking Public Gardens for a country park engagement shoot is the array of different backdrops, from one relatively small location you have woods, open grass, stunning trees and to top it all off even an ornate pond.

Billie and Mitchell are a great couple, full of happiness and that really came across in their photographs. They received some great images they can use on their save the date cards, hang on the wall, or as some couples choose to do have an album made. Looking forward to being back at The Fennes and photographing their wedding in 2022.
