Olive and Syd are already one of my favourite couples. Their proposal story is so unique and cute that I wanted to burst with love for them when they told me it.
Syd proposed to Olive after taking her on a quest around Cornwall, filled with maps and clues, leading her to the final moment where he asked her to marry him at Tintagel Castle. Every step and day was personalised to suit them and their relationship so perfectly.
"He proposed at the end of a 3 day treasure hunt all across Cornwall, he had put a crystal rune and map at lots of ancient sites and I had to find them and work out where the next clue was! At the end we ended up at Tintagel Castle (my fav place) and the crystal runes spelled out "marry me". Most amazing proposal EVER."
I met them during our first lockdown and they invited me into their beautiful home via FaceTime to do a virtual Engagement Shoot. Once restrictions were eased, our next step was to find the perfect location for their in-person engagement shoot.
They love historic places and initially the plan was for me to meet them at Tintagel Castle to relive their proposal with an engagement shoot. But as 2020 was a year of uncertainty and changes, this was going to prove too tricky. Olive suggested The Grange at Northington to have their engagement shoot. It's a building steeped in history and somewhere she visited as a little girl. It's also a beautiful wedding venue, I recommend you check it out! For a Creative Wedding Photographer, i knew it was going to be dreamy.
We met at the venue at 5pm. The long drive up to The grange was plastered with signs that read 'gates automatically lock at 6pm' - which in itself added a little something extra to their engagement shoot, as the sun set in our final hour.
The location was so unique and grand and romantic. It suited them so well. And as a couple, their energies shone through so magically in their photos. Authentic, beautiful, timeless love.
I have been told snippets about what they have planned for their 2022 wedding and I am so excited for it <3
