They used to meet walking their dogs up the Blackford Hill in Edinburgh. Gareth used to walk Black Labrador – Archie after work every day and Rhian walked her two Yorkshire Terriers -Robbo and Ruby. There were about ten people in the group with dogs who used to meet. Rhian was the youngest female in the group, the other dog walkers were all in their sixties, mostly divorced women. Rhian thought that Gareth is really funny and the most lovely person she ever meet, so she did everything to make sure that his eyes are on her! She didn’t have to, as he was very drive into her chatty and happy being personality.
Their first date…. hmm both of them had two different memories so I would only say that they end up laughing and kissing the whole day
Three and a half years after, Gareth propose Rhian on Christmas day. And it wouldn’t be Gareth if he did not made something funny so he wear Santa Mankini and pop the question to Rhian. She was absolutely thrilled with excitement. And so Gareth was as she said yes
“You only live once” – this is the motto that exactly describe both of their personalities. They don’t take life too seriously at all. That’s why they always smiling. And they are very looking forward to celebrate best day in their life with their family and friends.
And after this engagement session I’m thrilled and excited to document that day for them! I bet I will have sore tummy the next day from laughing!
They meet at the ski resort in France, he push her in the snow, she push him back and they met their match!
First date involved Kim coming to Scotland to visit from Hertfordshire where she lived. They spend all weekend like a tourists hanging around Edinburgh including trip to Loch Lomond where Danny organize romantic dinner at the lovely restaurant. He centrally want Kim to fall in love with Scotland and probably not only Scotland… The cheeky side of Kim attracted Danny so much and the way she put him at easy when they chat made him want her stay forever.
Weekend get to end and in the next few month they been travelling Edinburgh – London just so they can spend some time with each other. They were hooked! One day Kim handed her notice at work, move up to Scotland and never look back. Best decision ever? Sure it was! She love his smile and the way his eyes light up. She felt that being with Danny is best feeling in the world so why not to feel that all the time!?
You can literally say their love was on fire!
A year after being with each other they planned romantic weekend ‘nessy hunting’ in Loch Ness. As Danny is romantic everyday Kim didn’t found it strange when he start fussing around with lighting candles for the dinner and makes room ambient. He asked Kim to get the champagne flutes which she got. After missing the ring In the cupboard and being redirected, she spotted it and was speechless….
However as she reached to retrieve the ring her pashmina got caught by Danny’s very romantic candles. He had to get up from one knee to put out the flames! Once the fire on Kim’s pashmina was put out, Danny got back down on one knee and said the most beautiful things and asked Kim to be his wife, of course she said yes
Danny is most excited about seeing Kimberley walk down the aisle. And this dream will come true this weekend! She obviously cant wait to see his reaction to it!
Having someone to share life’s experiences with, starting a family and knowing that no matter what their face, Danny and Kim always be able to get through it together. This is what they look forward after the wedding day.
And I can’t wait to document begging of their married life at the beautiful Loch Lomond this weekend.
It was so wonderful to be back to Dalhousie Castle this year for Danielle and Craig’s wedding. Last time when I was there, the weather wasn’t great and we couldn’t use beautiful grounds and lovely small bridge which is right beside the castle. And so we use all this things this time with Danielle and Craig!
It was great fun to climb up on Royal observatory with Anna and Dan and do their engagement session with this wonderful view. Funny thing is that we have been living in Edinburgh for many years and we never been there before! One of the reason why we love engagement sessions – couples always take us to “never been places”!
I am so looking forward to their wedding this Saturday at Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh.
In my previous post you could see Rachael and Stuart’s animation from their engagement session and I mention there how lucky we were with the weather and amazing light. Well don’t know what is about them, if not the fact that they live in Australia and they have sun in their hearts but it did worked on their wedding as well!
The sunshine was above the Fingask castle till late at night and we made most of it!
Couldn’t be more excited to post a wee sneak peek from their special day!
Very late and quick post as the couple you will see in the minute will tie the knot tomorrow!! Rachael and Stuart flew from Australia to get married here in Scotland. We met on Wednesday to do their engagement shoot and I got a chance to get to know them as well. We had incredibly light that evening, that made magic in my camera!
What I love about them is that they have sweet love to each other that I’m so looking forward to document tomorrow!
Today you will see only the slideshow with all their photos from our shoot, cuz due to very busy schedules and we did our session quite close to the wedding day I did not have time to proper post it. But I’m so looking forward to blog it again with photos.
