I'm always eager to find new places for photoshoots so when Jo and Ben asked whether I would mind travelling over to Sand Bay near Weston-Super-Mare for their engagement photoshoot I was more than happy to oblige!

It's only a few short days before Alex and Phil's wedding at Wellington Barn. Last weekend we met up in the picturesque village of Lacock for their pre-wedding shoot.
