Today it gives me great pleasure to share this lovely Woodland Engagement Shoot with some canine company.

Jenny , the Bride tells us about her and Matt…
When did you meet?
“We’ve known each other since primary school. Matt was a few years above me so we didn’t really speak!”
“We also went to the same secondary school, but it wasn’t until after Matt had left sixth form that we started talking.”
“I was working in a local pub and Matt would come in occasionally.”
“We went on a date to the cinema and then in the summer went swimming and watched a game of cricket! The rest is history!!”
How did you get engaged
“It all started the night before Matt popped the question.”
“Matt told me that in the morning he had to go and pick something up from one of his dads friends.”
“We then went to my sisters house for tea where Matt claimed he never wanted to get married!”
“The next morning, off Matt went while I got showered and dressed.”
“He came back and a while later I came downstairs, Matt was sat on the sofa grinning at me.”
“I asked if he was ok, and he told me he didn’t go where he said he was going to and did I want to know where he had been?”
“Then he told me to close my eyes, when I opened them, he was down on one knee with a ring in his hand!!”
“I actually asked what it was because it was so unexpected after what he had said the night before?!”
When are you getting married? Plans for the day?
“We are getting married on 23rd May 2014 in the church in the village I grew up in, and then a reception at The Dower House Hotel, Woodhall Spa.”
“We want to have a really special day with family and friends and know the Dower House is a great venue for this.”
“We chose our Engagement shoot location as I lived opposite these woods on my parents farm before I moved out to live with Matt so I’ve always liked them. Now we enjoy walking our Labrador, Oscar, in there so it’s special to us both.”
Thanks to Courtney for sharing this lovely woodland engagement shoot, and to Jenny and Matt for sharing their story and their day out with Oscar, who is an absolutely gorgeous dog.
