Seaside Helen’s Bay Engagement: Clare & Thomas

Clare and Thomas and I ventured out one morning in May to Helen’s Bay in County Down for their pre-wedding engagement shoot. We started out at Crawfordsburn Country Park (a place all local wedding photographers will be familiar with, due to its popularity as a wedding hot spot for local weddings). Normally people like to head in to the forest and hang around Crawfordsburn Beach itself – but if you venture just a mile along the costal path, you come across Helen’s Bay beach, which tends to be quieter and more intimate. It is also a great walk for the dog, if you have one.

Clare and Thomas (who live in England – Clare being a local lass and Thomas being from the big “mainland” we call England). They popped over to arrange some final details for their wedding this summer up north and we spent the morning getting to know each other. Clare also is a mad baker and runs her own baking blog – check it out at A Wee Bit of Cake Blog
