When it rains on your parade, look up…. A preview of Louise and Stuart’s Newcastle engagement shoot.



“And when it rains on your parade, look up rather than down. Without the rain, there would be no rainbow….”

How right Gilbert Chesterton is.

Rain. We live with it as a fact of life here in the UK, but even the most stoic of us has despaired as yet more of the wet stuff descends from the sky this summer.

But neither Stuart nor Louise gave it a second thought as we mooched around the quayside in Newcastle for their engagement shoot yesterday. They met in this city, so as you’d imagine it holds a special place in their hearts. It does in mine too, I lived in Newcastle for a couple of years, and had a ball. It’s a fabulous city.

Yes it drizzled, yes the skies were grey, but I don’t think they actually even noticed.

This is one chilled out couple, relaxed, funny and easy going and our shoot together was just that too. I also LOVE how Lou decided to don her heels, you see it lifts you out of the puddles ;-)

Here’s a couple from the day, more next week.





Aren’t they just a gorgeous couple? I can’t wait to photograph their big day next month.
