When it comes to engagement shoots is there anything more romantic that planning a Paris Engagement Shoot! That is exactly what our real couple Natalie and Simon did with the help of their wedding day photographer Fiona Kelly.
Although preparing for their big day in Suffolk in the UK, the couple wanted combined their wanderlust to visit Paris with a dream engagement shoot around the city with Fiona, seeing the pretty pink blossoms and visiting iconic places such as the Eiffel Tower and and Notre Dame.
The lovely Natalie takes us through their Parisian shoot: “The decision was instant for the location of our engagement photo shoot, the most romantic city in the world, and somewhere we have always wanted to visit. How beautiful it is in Spring too, we had no idea Paris was so green (and pink!). We knew Fiona would not disappoint, she captured everything so perfectly and exactly how we wanted.
Our wedding is relatively small, only 40 guests in a quaint manor in Suffolk. We wanted it to be intimate, and we have chosen our suppliers including Fiona for their pretty, delicate and intimate styles. Our Champagne theme brings a little bit of Paris to the day too!
My advice for planning a wedding is to think about what you really want on the day and not what is expected or suggested. Think about the things that you love, and how you can incorporate them into your day. Find suppliers that compliment each other, read blogs and magazines, and enjoy it, the whole process. Because it really does go so quickly, and planning is as much a part of your wedding as the big day itself.”

My poor poor feet were so happy when I found them after forcing them around Paris in 4” heels!“
