Jess & Ilka - Carlisle pre-wedding shoot

It seems Tuesday was a perfect day to head up to Carlisle to meet up with Jess and Ilka as it was the only dry day we've had all week!  We started at the very cool bar they run (Thin White Duke in Carlisle - go visit!) and then wandered around the city where I avoided most of the pretty bits in search of a bit of urban grime and some wind - much to Jess & Ilka's amusement. 

How stunning is Jess?  Really.  And I kept telling Ilka off for doing 'fish lips' so he made sure he had perfected them for me by the end of the shoot. :)   Guys you were brilliant, thank you for trusting me!

Bring on the wedding!  Too excited.  Just WAIT til you see the dress... and everything else they have planned.  It's going to be incredibly stylish and a bit special.
