In May I met up with lovely Dimitra and Richard for their London Embankment Engagement session. Having an engagement session helps us both (myself and couples)to get used to one another and to help them prepare for the wedding day. They relaxed and engaged with each other very so we got some beautiful, natural images of them together.

When Dimitra & Richard asked if they could have their London engagement session in the place they had their first kiss I was very excited and could not wait to have a session with them. I just knew this London Embankment engagement session was going to be amazing, and I wasn’t disappointed! Being a London wedding photographer I absolute love shooting in and around central London as there are so many fabulous settings and locations, which, at the different time of the year makes more formal engagement portraits a complete joy to shoot.

Good old London Weather

Looking at the weather forecast, we arranged to meet one day late in the afternoon when the weather was supposed to be nice and sunny. Unfortunately, it wasn’t. It was pretty cold, dark and extremely windy. Having an engagement session at the embankment we were kind of ready for a spring, cool breeze, but this was much more than a cool breeze. It was pretty cold, dark and gloomy, just like an ordinary January winter day.

Despite the weather, the smiles and happiness were present in Dimitra and Richard for the whole time during the engagement session. As Dimitra loves fairy lights and is planning to incorporate as many as possible on the wedding day, we managed to find a few fairy lights along the way during the engagement session. Walking from The National Gallery towards the London Eye we were taking some pictures and talked about their big day and their plans for the wedding day making sure nothing is going to be missed. Here is the small collection of their session.

Their ceremony will be in The Greek Orthodox Cathedral on Moscow road followed by the reception at The Gibson Hall in Central London.
