Mel & Lee Engagement Session

This April seems to have every seasons weather, some really hot days, some snow and yes a lot of April showers!

Tyneham village between Corfe Castle and Lulworth Castle was the venue chosen by Mel and Lee for their engagement session. The village and chalk downland around the Purbeck Hills, were commandeered just before Christmas 1943 by the then War Office for use as firing ranges for training troops. Approximately 200 people were displaced, these days it is almost a tourist attraction, only accessible when the Army is not using the range.

Normally if the weather isn't looking good we're happy to reschedule but Mel and Lee were adamant they didn't mind a little rain so we went ahead and it brightened up nicely as the afternoon went on :)

Teri and I are looking forward to a less than usual wedding in June, the wedding ceremony will be held in Portland Castle and Mel and Lee will be dressed in full Medieval costume. That's neat but the best thing is all guests will be dressed up as well, I think Teri has promised for us to go in Medieval garb also (let's hope there's no incriminating pictures taken of me!).
