Last week, as Autumn resisted Winter's sudden onslaught, I met Arlene and Matthew for their engagement shoot in Alnwick. We had rainy day plans firmly in place as the forecast was to be wet. Very wet. But mercifully, it stayed dry for the hour and a bit we were in Alnwick gardens chatting and taking pictures. Arlene and Matthew both love this time of year and our time together was slotted between their birthdays, which made it that little bit more special. They were naturals, had a few ideas of their own to add to the mix and we enjoyed the time we spent here before heading back to Barter Books (our rainy day option for the most part!) for a cup of tea and some cake. A great afternoon to my mind. Enjoy a few of the photographs this gorgeous pair allowed me to take of them.
