Morning, there are chickens, rain and wellies. Can it beeeee any more ‘British countryside’? No. It is super cute. I have said before that I love engagement shoots, I also like having a nosy at who their suppliers will be. Their wedding is in less than a month, gosh, I can remember all that excited anxiety bubbling around in the 4 week countdown so I hope they are enjoying it too!
