I was invited back to Pegasus for a second time by Louise, and this time Laura decided to book in too! Laura had been messaging me in the run up to her shoot, it was going to be her 10th wedding anniversary, and to celebrate she was really keen to get some photos with her wedding dress on!
We started the shoot with Laura in the dress, and there were no prizes for guessing who Laura was when I walked back onto the yard! Laura was keen to get her dress photos with her absolutely gorgeous dappled grey Irish Draught, Snowdon. Snowdon is her show horse, who has won a number of frillies, and been Champion on several occasions as a youngster in hand. He is now 6 years old and Laura is planning to do a bit of BD to get him out and about seeing the world, before brining him back into the show ring.
Despite their practice run the day before, Snowdon was a little unsure of the big dress and its wonderful train. However, he was very well mannered and took a deep breath in and held his nerve for some beautiful mounted shots up in the field. Laura then hopped off and we captured some in hand photos before she nipped away to get changed into her show gear for the remainder of the shoot.
Mano, her very handsome Haflinger, joined us for some group shots and we made our way around the yard picking out some new backdrops to mix things up a bit. Laura and both horses were such naturals in front of the camera and made for some beautiful photos!
Thank you for choosing to celebrate your anniversary in this way – I hope you love your photos as much as I loved capturing them. I look forward to coming back to Pegasus for some more photo shoots this summer – see you all soon!
