Tessa&Chris I The Burghley House, Stamford

Magic tree - engagement, elopement photo shoot

What do Winnie the Pooh, a magical tree and a strange question about a very ill cat all have got in common? Well, introducing Tessa and Chris, a couple of teachers who melt hearts with their fiery yet gentle and affectionate personas, unbelievably contagious laughter and patience with my compulsive talking - you have been warned :) Add to that a beautiful golden hour sunset at the Burghley House, Stamford and we’ve got ourselves memories beautifully captured within some of the most beautiful surroundings in the midlands. A win win! 

Tessa and Chris’ pre-wedding session at the Burghley House occured on a very warm, early summer evening. I’ve been to that area before however I never explored the indoors of the House, which I’m assured, are worth a look. For their photo shoot, I’ve walked with Tessa and Chris around the main site ith hust over an hour to photograph their love story. I think I’ve got it! You see, these two are huge fans of “Winnie the Pooh” and so we were on a lookout for the theme of a tree, amongst other spots providing a magical setting to show their emotions. And then we’ve found not one but a number of them, my favourite being the one starting the set below. 

So, what about that ill cat question? Well, that’s me being silly and confusing Tessa and Chris with people I also met in January, who have told me how their ill cat almost bankrupted them. But that’s a story for another time… :)
Here’s Tessa and Chris at the Burghley House, Stamford. I seriously can’t wait to document their love further on the day coming this July!
