My Pre-wedding photoshoot at Cotes Mill!

5th June 2018

Pre-wedding photography is a swiftly emerging trend, with more and more couples setting aside a day prior to their wedding to spend time in front of the lens. Recently, I had my pre-wedding photoshoot at Cotes Mill. We opted for two contrasting themes: a traditional Indian look and a more formal theme.



I decided on having my Indian themed shoot at Cotes Mill. The beautiful greenery coupled with the River Soar makes for a perfect setting. Owh and don’t forget about the animals! To give my first theme more authenticity, we attempted to take a couple of pictures with some of the animals. The familiar surroundings helped make me comfortable and the qualities Cotes Mill holds assisted in making the shoot look natural.






The second shoot was held at Oadby Botanical Gardens. We opted for a more formal feel. With the gardens having some buildings, it allowed us to have a stronger, more powerful look to our photographs.







Luckily the weather was on our side so the photographs came out amazing! Cotes Mill is a truly an incredible location and I feel lucky that I get to be surrounded by so much beauty on a daily basis. Thank you Paul for choosing Cotes Mill, and most importantly thank you for letting me have my shoot here!
