“I am the happiest creature in the world. Perhaps other people have said so before, but not one with such justice.” – Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
Nestled just outside of London, Stourhead stands as a breathtaking testament to nature’s beauty and man’s artistry. This stunning Palladian house and world-famous garden, managed by The National Trust. It first opened its doors in the 1740s and is a “living work of art” ever since. As photographers, it’s a location that has long held a special place in our hearts. Especially now after having captured Kelly Clarkson Engagement session here.
Kelly Clarkson Engagement
What made our visit to Stourhead even more extraordinary was the opportunity to capture the engagement of one of music’s most beloved couples, Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock. The enchanting Stourhead Gardens, the very same location where the iconic 2005 adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice was filmed, starring Keira Knightley as Elizabeth Bennet—a film that holds a special place in many hearts, including ours.
A Photographer’s Dream Come True
Stourhead Gardens is a place where dreams take shape through the lens. The magnificent lake, with its reflective waters mirroring classical temples, mystical grottoes, and rare exotic trees, offers endless opportunities for capturing the magic of love. Every corner of this garden is a testament to the beauty of nature’s design, and it was our privilege to capture Kelly and Brandon against this stunning backdrop.
Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock’s engagement session at Stourhead Gardens is a day of romance, beauty, and timeless love. We’re honored to have been part of this momentous occasion and grateful for the trust they placed in us to capture their love story. We are even more honored to capture their wedding at Blackberry Farm in Tennessee, featured on People Magazine. Click here to view their Blackberry Farm Wedding As Seen on People Magazine.
We hold the privacy of our clients in the highest regard, and for this reason, we will only share the two images that Kelly has released to the public. These images are a testament to the love and connection between Kelly and Brandon, and we hope they provide a glimpse into the beauty of their journey together.
Behind every remarkable photograph is a team of dedicated individuals who bring the vision to life. We’d like to extend our gratitude to the creative partners who helped make this day unforgettable.
