I love these images by Carn Patrick Photography of Kay and Chris’s pre-wedding couples shoot in the pretty grass fields of Cleveland Hills. Photographed in June before their big day in August this year (congratulations guys!), Kay and Chris’s images are so lovely. I adore the natural feel of these pictures and how relaxed the couple are. Carn has captured Kay and Chris in a truly authentic way and I’m sure they will absolutely cherish these amazing images;
The Love Story
We have known each other a little over 10 years. Through Chris’s sister as she is my best friend. Finally 4 years ago we took the plunge and gave us a go, our close friends and family had known we should be together long before us, we were a little late to the party… better late than never and yes his sister is still my bestie!
Then in May 2017, two days before my looming 30Th birthday Chris took me on a road trip to a mystery location which turned out to be the Lake District. We checked into the beautiful Dale Head hall and after unpacking we went off exploring. Chris had already spoken with the hotel so knew where he wanted to end up for the big moment! After a dodgy detour and lots of complaining from me we made it, Chris had gone ahead as we were nearly at the top of the hill.
I finally caught him up and he was sat on the bench looking over Lake Thirlmere. He gave me a card to read and started playing our song Ed Sheeran thinking out loud and he dropped to one knee and popped the question, obviously it was and easy yes! He even remembered the champers! Perfect! Chris designed my ring (with a little help from his sister Rachael) its from Lloyds Family Jewellery.
The Shoot with Carn Patrick Photography
We spoke to Carn Patrick about where to have our couple’s shoot before the wedding and decided to head to Cleveland Hills on the 8th June. We wanted to capture Roseberry Toping within the shoot as this is where we had our first date.
We were very boring with our ‘what to wear’ haha, just white tee and jeans, his and hers, Topshop and Topman.
We love how relaxed we felt for the shoot. Carn was brilliant, with loads of great tips to remember on the Day ‘belly button to belly button’ was our fav! We just had fun.

Advice for Others
My advice for other couples would just be, don’t worry about what to wear and just relax and have fun and find a photographer who is as excited and passionate about capturing your wedding as you are, just priceless.
Thank you so much to Kay and Chris for sharing their couples shoot with Adored Bride, congratulations on your wedding too. Thanks also to Carn for these beautiful images,
