Well wedding season is in full swing and I am getting mighty over being the only one who cleans up around here (Jason keeps using the excuse that he has a wedding to shoot but really – does that mean he can’t pick up his own socks???) Rob and Rebecca’s wedding was last week – I have been looking forward to it because the engagement photos were so lovely and it didn’t disappoint. So, so beautiful and relaxed – they looked divine! As an aside when we were shooting their engagement portrait I asked Rob how he proposed:
We were travelling in Italy with Bec’s parents exploring the amazing Amalfi Coast. I had already sought permission from Bec’s parents and now it was about organising the most glamorous proposal possible. The plan was to go for a picnic lunch at a lovely little beach just near Sorrento, however on arrival at the beach a quick change of plan had to occur due to the rubbish and an aggressive Italian restauranteur.
The proposal location was changed to a cliff top bar where we took in a stunning sunset over the Amalfi coastline. Wearing my new Fedora hat (which I had become quite attached to) I went down on one knee and told Bec that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.
It was only after the fourth “Are you serious?” that she realised that I was very serious. Perhaps it was the Fedora hat that made it seem like a hoax. (Rob – Jason proposed to me while I was wearing a bike helmet so I know what you mean!) We stopped on the walk home to buy a 5 euro interim engagement ring from a wooden cart on a cobbled alleyway. Who knew cubic zirconia could be so priceless…
And now here they are – married – and no crazy headwear in sight!
