An Intimate

After months of lockdown, I wanted to create a series of shoots to lift people’s mood and to create a positive buzz around romance, engagements and intimate weddings and this engagement shoot was the perfect pop of colour needed!

The current global pandemic has forced people to spend more time outside and more time together. As I was walking about the park one day, I thought about how special it would be, and what an incredibly positive moment it would be to have a really beautiful picnic engagement. Using the brightest colours we could find, pinks, yellows and peach flowers surrounding a low table dressed with the most gorgeous cushions and love signs to create the perfect summer proposal. My favourite colour is also yellow, so it made this an extremely fun shoot to play with!

“I adored capturing this beautiful engagement picnic editorial at The Four Seasons Hampshire. Hannah from Maple Rose, created a dream setting for a proposal to take place and with the Four Seasons as backdrop, I was spoilt for choice when it came to creating beautiful images. As a fan of vibrant colours, I loved the bold floral design by Paula Rooney and pops of colour used throughout. Steve & Claire’s initial reactions when they saw the beautiful engagement picnic laid out for them, was great! This editorial is the perfect inspiration for guys looking for ideas to propose to their girlfriends. What better backdrop than The Four Seasons Hampshire and a beautiful picnic like this one created by Maple Rose, to ask your best friend to marry you?” – Anneli Marinovich.
