A Victorian Engagement in Highgate {Madeleine & Edward}

Victorian wedding photos London

Madeleine and Edward are two wonderful, creative individuals who do things their way. With their love of Victoriana and Steampunk, their wedding next year at Kew Bridge Steam Museum and Strawberry Hill House is going to be centred around that style (eeek! So excited!), and of course their engagement shoot had to fit in with the theme! Not that it required much dressing up on their part, as they pointed out, because this is how they like to dress anyway. I love the whole Victorian feel, so I was thrilled, and even more so when they suggested doing part of the shoot in the Highgate cemetery, which is one of the most beautiful in North London. Of course, we were nearly rained out, but we fought back bravely (and had some coffee to wait it out), and in the end we got some gorgeous autumny shots. Even Edward’s cello and Madeleine’s huge book of Chaucer survived!
