As an engagement & elopement photographer, I am always searching for the best locations to do photo shoots in the world. Whenever I am travelling, the first thing I do is curate stunning places I want to photograph. London has been home to me for nearly a decade before I got the opportunity to live in California. And somehow I never knew about Mayfair Lavender farms located just an hours train ride from central London. Thankfully, I was staying with my bestie in Kent during this visit so we got to drive to the location with ease.
Sophie & Tom, the couple you see in these pictures were absolutely amazing. They not only drove for just under 2 hours to get here but also braved the gusty winds ( 22mph ) on the day. Thankfully the sun was on our side, well mostly and with friends helping me out with holding the light stand, I was a very happy person.
The rows of blue and purple lavender scattered across, I can still feel the wind spluttering my face and the sweet smell in the air. It was a beautiful day that ended with cuppa coffee, lavender spiced scone and A Few Good Clicks. Pure Bliss!
If you are looking for that perfect location to either pop the question or just capture your vacation pictures, Lavender Fields in and around London or France or even California has to be among the top 10 list.
