Abby & Mike
We love nothing more than to see engagements happen in the city, our Chelle caught one last autumn under the fairy lights of spinning fields in manchester city centre, how romantic!
On this weeks blog we have the gorgeous abby & Mike who had their engagement shoot in the city!
When and where was the proposal, and who proposed?
Mike proposed a few days before Christmas at Portmeirion Village in Wales, on the 22 nd
December 2018. All he told me was that he had booked my Christmas present early and instructed that I pack a nice dress and bundled me into the car.
Portmeirion has always been my favourite place, so when we arrived I just thought he had been really thoughtful with his gift by booking an overnight stay right on the front (he always ‘wins’ Christmas!) and super lucky with the weather which was a glorious blue
We got ready for dinner and I asked him to take a picture of me next to the huge Christmas tree so I could show my posh frock off to my Mum –I wondered why he was a bit agitated and thought he was being a bit funny… Five minutes later, the ring appeared from his jacket pocket
literally for the first time in my entire life, I was completely speechless!
It turned out all of my friends knew that Mike was going to ask me to marry him so I was the only one in the dark! Somehow it felt even more special that my best friends had helped him to choose the right ring size and help with his cover story – everyone had put so much effort in and it meant the world to me!
WHAT DATE IS THE WEDDING?
The Wedding is on SATURDAY 27 TH june 2020 at DIDSBURY HOUSE HOTEL. WE WERE LOOKING FOR A REALLY INTIMATE VENUE, NO MORE THAN 50 GUESTS AND WE LOVE VICTORIAN HOUSES (WE HAVE AN OLD TERRACE THAT WE’RE SLOWLY DOING UP) SO DIDSBURY HOUSE TICKED EVERY SINGLE BOX AND A FEW
MORE THAT WE HADN’T EVEN THOUGHT OF!
OUR GUESTS WILL BE SPENDING THE WHOLE NIGHT WITH US AND WE’LL ALL HAVE BREAKFAST TOGETHER THE NEXT MORNING. IT FEELS LIKE OUR WEDDING WILL LAST FOR A WHOLE WEEKEND! IF THE WEATHER IS KIND TO US, WE’RE HOPING TO WALK OVER TO FLETCHER MOSS BOTANICAL GARDENS FOR SOME AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS! WE LOVE IT THERE!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE AREA YOU DID FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT SHOOT?
WE SPEND A LOT OF TIME IN MANCHESTER – IT’S BY FAR THE COOLEST CITY, EVEN BEATING MY HOMETOWN OF BIRMINGHAM – SO IT WAS AN EASY CALL. WE HADN’T INITIALLY PLANNED ON HAVING AN ENGAGEMENT SHOOT BUT WE WANTED TO MEET OUR INCREDIBLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER, CASSANDRA LANE, AND SO BOOKED THE SHOOT TO IRON OUT SOME OF OUR CAMERA NERVES AT THE SAME TIME!
We loved this shoot, if you want your engagement or wedding featured on our blog then submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org
