{Wedding Wednesday} Beth & Antonio’s ultra modern urban engagement shoot!

We’re half way through the week and Christmas is creeping up on us! Over the festive season, we’ll be taking a break here at A Vintage Wedding Guide but cannot wait to be back in January to hear all those Christmas engagement stories! Eeeeep! We love hearing from brides, grooms & photographers about engagement stories, so were thrilled to receive this fabulous e-shoot from the super talented Paola De Paola! I love this ultra-modern engagement shoot of Beth & Antonio – the colours are just so bright & vibrant! Here’s Paola to tell us more about this loved-up couple!

I first met Beth at Miss Vintage Wedding Fair in Battersea Arts Centre on 20 October 2013. We started talking and we immediately clicked, even though she said that ‘at her wedding she did not need a photographer’ as a friend will be covering the event. Well, I’m obviously very happy that Beth and Antonio (her fiancé) changed their mind and booked me as their wedding photographer.

We had an initial meeting to decide the when and where of the engagement shoot. The street art of Shoreditch was the chosen location. As I always do, I created a Pinterest board called Beth and Antonio. I’m a visual person and completely in love with Pinterest.

Their engagement shoot was decided on Saturday 23 November. I did a recce a few days before to pinpoint where the most interesting murals were located. I sometimes forget how wonderful and resourceful London is.

We met up early despite London Underground not working,(no Northen Line or Overground line) there was just a bus replacement. The day was sunny with a wonderful blue sky, but cold, freezing cold, so much so that their pug puppy couldn’t join us for the photo shoot.

Antonio Terreno is an Italian born System Developer now working at MailOnline, Beth is a freelance journalist. Obviously they have a very artistic flair. We gelled well together they are really friendly and Beth is very photogenic

I can’t wait for the big day! April is just around the corner.
