Today I am delighted to share a lovely relaxed Rouken Glen Park Engagement Shoot, also starring Amber the dog.
Images of the day were captured by Jill Cherry Porter Photography.
Jill Cherry Porter specialises in Fine Art Creative Wedding & Lifestyle Photography.
Originally hailing from Ayrshire, she now lives in the beautiful Fife coastal town of Dalgety Bay, which is literally just over the water from Scotland’s amazing capital, Edinburgh.
She is a hopeless romantic who loves what she does and creating beautiful photography featuring real people is such a joy for her.
She works all around Scotland & the UK as well as Destination celebrations too.
Jill shares her recollection of the shoot…
“Sunday the 20th of April was such a lovely day. It was Easter Sunday and one of the warmest, sunniest days we’ve had so far this year.”
“The type of day where you didn’t have to worry about an umbrella or a jacket when you left the house.”
“The perfect day for a walk with your favourite people, which is exactly what Wendy and Gaven decided to do.”
“For their Engagement Shoot, they decided on a place they love that they regularly visit to walk their beautiful dog, Amber.”
“They couldn’t have picked a lovelier setting and Amber was as happy as larry sniffing around in the springtime sunshine.”
“Wendy & Gav were both naturals in front of the camera and Rouken Glen Park is a real treasure.”
“We were surrounded by flowing rivers, beautiful waterfalls and breath-taking walkways.”
“A couple in love, a gorgeous little dog, stunning natural backdrops and lots of sunshine….what more could you ask for?”
I pass over to the couple to tell us their story…
How did you meet?
“We met through mutual friends, and were friends for over a year before we became a couple…that was 14 years ago and now we’re getting married!”
When did you get engaged?
“We had discussed getting married for a while, and one day when we were out shopping, I was looking at rings in a jewellers window as we passed.”
“Then in a spur of the moment kind of way we were suddenly in the shop and I was trying some on!”
“I eventually found one that I loved and we got it there and then!”
“Gav didn’t actually propose for a couple of days though, but when he did it was perfect.”
“We both had a day off, so after a nice long lie and spending the morning in our pj’s he disappeared upstairs whilst i went into the kitchen to boil the kettle.”
“When he reappeared he said he had something he’d meant to ask me, and when I turned round expectantly thats when he produced the ring and asked me to be his wife!”
Tell us about the Wedding
“We are getting married on Saturday the 20th of September this year at the beautiful Dumfries House in Ayrshire.”
Thanks so much to Jill for sharing this gorgeous park engagement shoot.
Rouken Glen Park is pretty special to me too being less than 5 minutes drive from where I live.
Its a wonderful place to take a stroll and embrace nature, and for children to play so I am not surprised Wendy and Gav love it too.
Add in wee beauty Amber and there have been some lovely memories created.
