Engagement Portraits at Tintern Abbey, Wye Valley | Ashleigh + Jed

A relaxed pre-wedding couple shoot at Tintern Abbey in Wye Valley, Monmouthshire.

When Ashleigh and Jed got in touch to say they were travelling to Wales from California and would love to to factor in engagement photography session I was really excited to work with them!Ashleigh and Jed are getting married back home in California in September. They have planned a really small, intimate wedding that sounds divine and totally up my street. They had spotted Laura & Rhys’s Caerphilly Castle Wedding and knew they wanted their couple shoot to be somewhere rustic. Tintern Abbey, in the heart of the Wye Valley fitted the bill perfectly.  Ashleigh’s family are Welsh, and she has fond memories of visiting many of the CADW sites throughout Wales over the years.

I posted recently about getting the most from your couple shoot, and these guys brought it.  The Abbey lies in the heart of the Wye Valley, on the banks of the River Wye. The Wye Valley is beautiful – full of lush, fresh green landscape and woodland. To be honest, Wales has some of the best Castle and historical sites, they are just epic. We kept things really relaxed and took a stroll around the ruins in the sun. They are so impressive!
