If you’re feeling in need of a winter snuggly treat then you’ll love our happy couple in today’s Share the love. This is a lovely engagement shoot in one of our favourite Kent towns, Canterbury. We asked one half of our happy couple, Laura, to tell us all about the big proposal and the low down on their shoot.
When and where did you get engaged?
It was in December in Canterbury, which is where we met and both studied at Canterbury Christ Church University.
Who proposed to whom?
Chris proposed to me, keeping it traditional on one knee, diamond ring at the ready! We then went for a nice for a cup of tea and a service in the Cathedral. It all came as a complete surprise!
Why did you pick Canterbury for your shoot?
We got engaged on the bridge near the Marlowe Theatre, a bridge that was always on our walk home as students, so it’s very special to us. Then we retraced the steps of the engagement day, going for a drink in Chambers Café before heading into the Cathedral cloisters for some shots there. Then, as a bonus we headed off to Reculver for some photographs. We had to race over as we hoped for some sunset pictures. In spite of it being overcast all day, the sun finally appeared for the last half hour of our shoot!
Did friends and family know in advance or did you tell them after?
Of course my dad had to know! As Chris is training to be a vicar, there’s an old tradition that his ‘boss’, the Bishop, is supposed to know too. A few friends knew too because it’s a big secret to keep! Then we spent the evening phoning everyone else before going out for dinner.
How did you pick your photographer for your engagement shoot?
Rebecca came highly recommended by a friend of ours so we knew just who to ring when the time came! We so made the right choice and we are looking forward to working with her on our wedding day!
And so lastly when is the big day?
Saturday 12th October 2013 at St Stephen’s Church, Canterbury.
Thanks so much to Rebecca Douglas and our couple for sharing their engagement with us.
Happy Wedding Planning! x
