In case of Lyndsey and Stuart The saying “the way to the men heart is through the stomach” is just right. Both met at Ikea where they worked and Stuart use to visit Lynsay at the restaurant on the break for some foodie where she was serving. Lynsay caught Stuart’s eye with her amazing smile and beautiful eyes, so he started to chat to her and things goes on. It was that time when he got to know her. He knew that she was the one as their shared a lot of the same values and ambitions.
Lynsay really enjoyed talking to him and agreed to meet up outside of work. Things just carried on from there. When they first got together though they seemed to be doomed as a couple!…. Lynsay went on holiday for a week to Tenerife and ended up, stuck because of the ash cloud. Once she finally got home Stuart then went off to Florida for 3 weeks. Then, once he got back, she ended up in hospital. During her recovery, Stuart drove out every single day to see her. She was in a lot of pain and he really looked after her. He got her bowls of ice cream, tried to make her laugh and gave the best cuddles. He was like a best friend and she loved spend time with him. That’s when she realised just how amazing guy he was and that she was absolutely head over heels for him. Their relationship has just grown stronger and stronger from there.
Few years later, they moved into their first house together. The Christmas time was the time, when Stuart thought it will be the right moment to ask the big question. They woke up in the morning and Stuart brought their stockings through to open. They had both opened their own when Stuart revealed a third stocking that was for Lynsay. It has the usual assortment of bath goodies etc, but when she got to the bottom there was a little box in the shape of a stocking. Lynsay thought it was a decoration for Christmas tree, but Stuart told her to open it up. When she opened it, there was a Haribo ring inside, she looked at Stuart to say “very funny” but he wasn’t there beside her. She then realised he was in fact down, at the side of the bed, on one knee with another box. Then he opened the box and asked her to marry him and of course she said yes! She cried of happiness a lot that day !
And now after some year of preparations the Big Day is about to happen! They both so excited to see each other on the aisle and spend the rest of their life as a new Mrs. and Mr. Mitchell!
For their engagement session we went to the Penicuik House where Stu and Lynsay like to spend their free time. I love to watch them and see how bubbly and loving chemistry they have. Take a look at their photos! (To see more images from this shoot please scroll down to the bottom of the post and hit play!).
