Babington House lake, Somerset

A long way from the blissful 25 degree weather of their Abu Dhabi home, Sami and Tammy came to a wintery Somerset to make arrangements for their wedding next summer. I met them in the cosy bar of Babington House to warm up and get to know each other a little. We then set out around the lake to capture a few moments of them together in their busy schedule. Like me, Tammy loves the seasons, and enjoyed walking in the falling leaves with the light breeze nipping at our fingers and noses.

Whatever the weather, these two carry the sunshine with them. More than a joy to be around, they make you feel valued and appreciated. I think they are the sort who bring out the best in everyone they meet. They have put together a dream team for their celebrations next summer, and it was wonderful to spend some time together before their big day.

Surrey, England

victoria-olly-engagement_ria-mishaal-photography-001

Victoria & Olly had planned to explore one of the London parks with me, but the weather had other plans. Having considered the all important wet weather alternative, we met at Victoria’s parents home. A stunning backdrop to capture a few moments of this unique time. They recently got a new puppy, and like everyone else he meets, he stole my heart clean away.

There are some people you meet and instantly you get a feeling for their warmth and kindness. I felt welcomed in their presence and there is something about the two of them together that makes you believe they are at home in each others arms. Their wedding at Babington House next summer is going to be a highlight of my year.

Virginia Water, Surrey

Cascades of silver water playing in a silver light. Two people, very much in love, framed by the golden colours of autumn. Nicola & Kyle chose to meet me for a Virginia Water engagement shoot, and it was an incredible choice of backdrop. They hadn’t been there before, so we explored the space together, and they let me get to know a little of their particular calm and joyful bond.

Greenwich, London

greenwich-engagement-shoot_ria-mishaal-photography-15

I had never been to the beautiful park in Greenwich, so exploring in the golden light with the leaves turning was a treat. Anneliese and Will chose a Greenwich engagement shoot as they hold this area close to their hearts. Though they have moved away now, they lived here together for some time, and the park was a favourite spot to come to together.

Looking out of the city, in the peace above the buildings and tree tops, there is a change of pace. You can take a deep breath up there, and think clearly. I can see why they love it so much. Anneliese and Will met when they were children, but life took them in different directions until they both ended up in the city and found each other once again. There is something beautifully poetic to their tale, and the connection between them is so strong. I am very much looking forward to their big day next summer.

Ellie & Dory hold woodland close to their hearts, and from the start we had a Westonbirt Arboretum engagement shoot in mind. Bright, in the throws of autumn colour, we shared some quiet time off the beaten path, away from the crowds of families come to enjoy the spectacular scene.

Playing with the colour and the light, we could create a fitting backdrop for their incredible connection. As the daylight faded, encouraged to head homeward, we stopped for a hot chocolate to continue our conversations on their plans for their celebrations at the Matara Centre next year. The perfect end to our afternoon.
