RACHEL & JAMES | THE ENGAGEMENT, VIRGINIA WATER, SURREY

THE COUPLE & THE VISIT TO THE VENUE

Rachel and James are fun, really fun. That day they wanted to show me their venue as it is quite different. So, we met a couple of hours before the engagement session to visit the gorgeous Horsley Estate (formerly known as Horsley Park). I don't know how to describe the venue... it's got acres of grounds with horses, a big lake and that tower... it's simply stunning. 

Built in 1820, the core of the Towers was designed by Charles Barry, better known for creating the Houses of Parliament. And I think the best part of getting married there is that the venue has a lot of different and charming spaces. Actually, that's mainly what we did, discover the insides of the venue. Long hallways, impressive high ceiling and full of character rooms and even a small chapel. I think is gonna be better if you have a look at the following slideshow because I need to tell you about the lovely engagement that we had at Virginia Water and also because I will talk more about the venue after the wedding 😜.

A ROMANTIC SUNSET AT VIRGINIA WATER LAKE

My first time at Virginia Water... I know, I know... many people had told me: -You have to go and see it, it's really beautiful- but I was busy! Anyway, what a better way to see a beautiful place for the first time than during an engagement session and a sunset?

Quite challenging though, because it was a Sunday and even I think it was bank holiday on Monday... so you can imagine, Virginia Water was packed.

The place is stunning, a huge lake, lots of vegetation and definitely a place to have a long walk and relax. The engagement session went really well, Rachel & James were really relaxed and they definitely had fun. Actually, time flew and before we noticed it was quite dark!

Enjoy the images and let me know what you think. Feel free to share and comment bellow!

Love,
