What a lovely photo shoot with Hélène and Ben at Hampstead Pergola and Hill gardens on a sunny spring Sunday morning. I am photographing their wedding in Scotland in July and they wanted to do an engagement/pre wedding shoot and this is absolutely the best location that I know of for photos – at any time of year. At the moment, the flowers are just starting to come out so there is a little colour, and the trees are in full blossom. The vines, columns and walkways always make a fantastic backdrop and they were accentuated by the strong shadows and lines. Here are a few shots from the shoot.

If you haven’t been along, you really must visit the garden! For info about where it is, click on this link to TripAdvisor – Hampstead Pergola and Hill Garden

I always park in the pay and display car park at the rear of Jack Straws Castle.

If you are coming on public transport, it is about a ten minute walk up from Hampstead Tube Station.
