Today I would like to take you to Copenhagen.
Last September when I was visiting my sister in Denmark I had a chance to meet Gillian and Rene who live in Copenhagen. They are getting married in Scotland where Gillian comes from but I thought it will be great idea to do it there and make round in this beautiful city! I do love shooting engagement sessions in the city cuz is giving us so many lovely backgrounds and textures to the photos. And Copenhagen ohhh!!! This colors! just wonderful! But let me tell you a bit about Gillian and Rene…..
Rene and Gillian met in Australia in 2009. She was living in Melbourne with 2 friends in a big townhouse, having been working in Australia for about a year. They were looking for a fourth housemate so put out an advert on one of these “flatmate finders “ websites. Rene came to view the place, which he didn’t get as he was going back to Denmark too soon. But they hit it off from the beginning and start dating.
They first date was at a French restaurant in Melbourne called Madame SouSou. They had a romantic dinner and a few drinks afterwards with a long chat. They were going to this place after quite a bit to reminisce about their first date.
After he finished his degree, Rene moved back to Australia in 2010 and they lived there together until recently.
On their fifth year anniversary Rene had something special in mind but he din’t want Gillian to be suspicious so he let her organize weekend away. While having a great time and celebrate their 5th year together Rene surprise Gillian with a question and the ring. Guess what she said? 🙂 YES !!!
They are so looking forward to bringing their families and friends together to celebrate. Especially excited that the Danes will get to experience some Scottish wedding traditions and vice versa! and me to photograph all this moments for them!
Not long to their big day! Just one week to go!!
