Congratulations on your Engagement!

Christmas and New Year are traditionally very romantic times for marriage proposals to be made.  

"Congratulations" if you are recently engaged!

In this post I'll reveal some of the reasons why Pete and I love doing Wedding Photography and why it means so much to us to be involved in capturing the special moments, the shared joys and the love of family and friends.

If the ring were real it would have a name!


I remember getting engaged in December so well.

It was a wonderfully romantic setting with snow gently falling outside the restaurant as Pete proposed. We walked to the main square after a beautiful meal in Copenhagen where the Christmas Tree was lit with fairy lights.  I knew that this was one of the happiest days of my life.

And yes, it is a very, very large ring! It it were real it would probably have a name - Kohinoor or something...

I like to think that he proposed with this ring for dramatic effect but also because if I'd said "No" he would only have invested £30 in a piece of costume jewellery from the airport!

We replaced it after Christmas a few weeks later with a beautiful engagement ring from the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter that we chose together. 



Within a month we were planning our wedding and within two we were married. 

The setting was Seven Mile Beach in the Cayman Islands where I had worked as a scuba diving instructor. It had special memories for me and it was a beautiful backdrop as the sun set. My best friend was my best woman and we were married by the Reverend Meghoo! 

As photographers we spent a lot of time researching the top wedding photographers in the Cayman Islands. In the end we spent more on our photographer than we did on our hotel! That probably says a lot.

Our final choice was Rebecca Davidson. She is a superb photographer based on Grand Cayman and is quite an inspiration. We loved her style and her approach. She made us feel like movie stars and we instantly relaxed in front of the camera. 

When we came home we had a Blessing and a big marquee party in the summer - it was the perfect combination for us.

Rebecca inspired us and we loved the process. We often look back on the photos or play the slideshow set to romantic music. We love to help couples enjoy their wedding day as much as we did.

These are a few things that we worked out - 

  • Every engagement is different. 
  • Yours will be as unique as you are and as your wedding will be.
  • Enjoy each moment as you plan your future lives together. 
  • Be authentic and true to yourselves.  
  • Work out what is important to you - it's a great starting point for your plans.
  • Check out different photographers' websites and get a feel for the styles on offer - Instagram is great for this. 


Please visit our website and view our Wedding Portfolio Selection.   Get a feel for our images and see if you like them. If you do, feel free to call us to discuss. We can arrange to meet (or Skype) and talk through your ideas and answer any questions.

We'd love to be part of your day in the way that Rebecca was for us.

Here are a few of Rebecca's images which we absolutely love.
