Best engagement shoots 2017 | byGarazi | UK Wedding Photographer

This is part one of my BEST OF 2017. I had too many favourites to add so here are the prewedding photo shoots (plus a couple styled shoots I did, with gorgeous bridal beauty looks). The actual wedding images will be on the next post (and there will be a special image at the very end of it for anyone that looks through all the images!).

Lets start with Andrea and Rich, who are just dreamboats! We had a great shoot/walk about London with plenty of giggles, other people's dogs and plenty of snuggle moments. Just how I like it! You can also check out their awesome industrial London wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf on my website.
















I first met Ellie many years ago, when she modelled. I still love her big doey eyes, but this time they kept looking at her love Fraser! Can't wait for their 2018 wedding in Malvern!










Richard and Lisa decided to bring their Boston Terrier with them to the shoot. We ran around the grounds of their wedding venue Westonbirt House in The Cotswolds and magically managed to dodge all the rain (both before and after... lucky us!).









I think Nat was probably one of the brides who was least looking forward to spending time in front of the camera... But she's definitely a natural! We spent the afternoon in the Clent Hills on a sunny summer afternoon and Rob just doted on her. Their Cotswolds Kingscote Barn wedding was also a happy sunny affair, and her Rue de Seine dress was just incredible!








Another city engagement shoot, this time in Birmingham. Dan and Sofi then tied the knot in Oxford. A beautiful indie wedding (you should see her Kate Beaumont dress!)










Firstly, just look at this cat! She joined us for part of the prewedding shoot and all I wanted to do was take her home with me... (Promise I'm not a cat-burglar though!)







Secondly, how cute do Ash and Mark look together? Their wedding in a barn in Kent this year is looking to be a super fun one. I joined them for a walk around the Hornimans Museum in London (with incredible views over the city).












Aman and Charn had a big engagement party. They had loads of family and friends to see, but I made sure to take a few images of just them too!







It was a pleasure to photograph Daniela and Lorenzo. I've never seen a couple so smitten! The way they look at each other and hold each other made me all emotional... They tied the knot at a traditional wedding in Swinfen Hall in Lichfield (where they carried on looking as in love as here).








I joined Dianne and Matthew close to their home in the countryside for a walk in the fields and woods. Always a favourite! They got married in the beautiful Hengrave Hall in Suffolk.







And last, but not least, here are a couple of the styled shoots I did last year. Photographing bridal make-up looks at Zellig (in the Custard Factory complex) for the Central School of make-up. And how incredible is that flower crown??
