Like most couples in 2020 Jess & Dave had to postpone their Wedding date to 2021. In its place they booked in with me to do this beautiful 'would-be wedding day' shoot so I took them to Abbots Wood in East Sussex. I'm totally in love with a forrest setting and shooting here in late summer means we got to enjoy all those rich dark greens and the lush full canopy of the amazing tree's and plants. I've now had the pleasure in shooting their incredible wedding day (they managed to squeeze it in between lockdowns) so I really feel I know the love between these two gorgeous people.
The energy that you get from ancient tree's and the mindfulness created when appreciating a natural location is incredible. We took a walk around the woods and became one with nature. Ever heard of 'Tree Bathing"? We should all definitely do it more. Ecotherapy or otherwise called nature therapy is all about using techniques or treatments to improve your mental & physical wellbeing whist getting close to nature or outdoor surroundings. I love this way of thinking. We should all go and lay down beside a tree once in a while (not too sure about all the bugs though...)
