They meet when they were 7 years old introduced by their parents. They continued their friendship through childhood until teenage years, when both went their own paths and lost contact for a while. Patricia said it’s because he started ignoring her once he got busy in life and he moved away to study and work. But he has a different story. He says he became invisible to Patricia, that’s why their lost contact. It was funny to listen their debate on our meeting who’s fault it was that they lost contact for quite a number of years! Anyway Jacky says that he things that Patricia was kind of innocent first love to him as she was first female friend to him. How sweet is that ?
Finally they met each other and had a catch up few years after. Jacky was working in HK at that time and Patricia was there for holiday. They connected so well, like never been apart from each other. Through time as Patricia got to know him better all over again, she realised what an amazing person he has turned out to be and that’s when she started to fall for him. Jacky started to think that she is one of the kindest person he have met, always caring and thinking for others. Secondly, she finds him funny. She does not judge so he can really be himself. He just feel he want to make her smile for the rest of his life so their relationship blossom into being the foundation upon which their dreams grow.
Jacky have always collected things that highlighted or marked their journey as a couple. Tickets and souvenirs from events and places they’ve been. He decided to create a memory trail with candles and envelops of the mementos and notes/messages to hopefully remind her of the journey they took to arrive at this point. She would have preferred being proposed to in private and intimate seeing, without distractions. It was lucky for him as he don’t like being the centre of attention. He decided to propose at her house, when she least expected, after a late work night shift. The trail took her around the house lit by the hundred candles and to the upstairs bedroom when the last envelop instructed her to look out into the back garden. He was waiting for her by a light display that asks her to marry him. With happy tears Patricia said YES!
They both super excited to start new journey as a husband and wife. Jacky can’t wait to see Patricia innocent and happiest smile at the wedding. He can’t wait to start family of their own with his wife. Finally Patricia can’t wait to have him all for herself at their own house. They both want to grow old together always knowing that they will be at each others side regardless of what happens to either of them.
As they plan to wed in April, they planned an engagement session in Edinburgh, at Newhaven Harbour. I was thrilled to spend more time with this amazing couple and I can’t wait to document their first day as husband and wife soon!
I loved how easy their snug into each other forgetting the whole world around them.
