We recently met up with Laura & Andy for their engagement session at Crawfordsburn Country Park in County Down. They will be getting married in early 2019 at the Clandeboye Lodge in Bangor.
We normally prefer to let our couples choose the location when they book us for an engagement session and Crawfordsburn was not Laura & Andrew’s first choice. They had originally planned to use Portavoe reservoir in Donaghadee but unfortunately it is currently closed to the public so was not an option. They had asked us for recommendations and straight away, we thought of Crawfordsburn Country Park. It is somewhere we have visited a lot recently to photograph weddings and other things. It is one of the few local locations that offers both a beach and a forest area and always works well.
We chose early morning for the session, as Crawfordsburn can get quite busy even at this time of the year. We had a little bit of concern about the weather leading up to the session and although the weather forecast was for a dry day when we arrived, it had started to rain. Thankfully, it was not heavy and was gone before too long.
As you would expect Laura & Andy are both excited about their wedding and seem to be well on their way to having all of their arrangements made. This was the first time we had met them both so the engagement session gave us a good chance to get to know each other a little better before we photograph the big day. We have not doubt that their wedding is going to be a lot of fun.
