Good afternoon gorgeous ones!
How can it be Friday already? Seriously, my to-do list is still pretty full! I was just getting ready to schedule Rachel and Gareth’s wedding for Monday and realised I also had their incredible engagement shoot from You Them Us Photography– so here we are, sharing it today. It is everything I adore; colourful, full of fun and romance. Here’s a quick introduction to Mondays real life couple, Rachel and Gareth. Have a fantastic weekend and see ya Monday!
Rachel and Gareth met online and luckily when they met up in October 2004 it was love at first sight for them both!
“We knew it was special when Gareth worked in London for a year. We would spend hours on the phone at night, at times not speaking but just listening to each other breath to feel closer to one another. We knew then that we couldn’t be without each other,” said Rachel.
“We got engaged on Christmas Eve 2008, yes, it took us a long time to get married! On Christmas Eve we gave each other one present to open. Gareth insisted I open mine first and handed me a large, beautifully wrapped present with a big bow on top (of course I was delighted as it was the one I would have chosen to open!) As I began to open it there were boxes within boxes, each box had a smaller box inside until I came to one filled with hundreds of love heart sweets and a Lunn’s ring box with a glinting engagement ring inside and a love heart saying “Marry Me” on it!” explained Rachel.
Aren’t they just the most lovely couple? You can catch their wedding day on the blog on Monday, it’s just as awesome! xx
