HOORAY! WOOP! YAHOO! HURRAH! We are getting hitched! BOOM!
After nearly 10 years together many people we work with assume we are already married; well we have known for a while that we are ready to be a Mr & Mrs unit, and so the time has come we are officially getting wed!
Anyone that knows us will realise that we aren't always the most traditional couple and we are proud to say that we decided to get married together. Although Ben did pull a few surprises from under his hat there wasn't an elaborate one knee moment; instead we collaborated with Christian and Sean from Christian Michael Photography to create a wedding announcement film in St Ives, one of our favourite places. For us it has been the perfect way to share our news with the big wide world (and our Mums).
We went along to the beach not really knowing what we wanted the film to be, and actually pretty bashful about being in front of the camera; Christian took some beautiful still shots of us on the beach and completely put us at ease. It was lovely to meet the family behind the brand and hearing all about Christian and Samantha's own love story just cemented their genuine passion for the wedding industry and working with couples to get married their way.
Sean (the brains behind videography) was an absolute joy to be around, having never done anything like this before we had no idea what a fun day we would have! Sean came up with the 'message in a bottle' concept and this paired Ben's hidden acting talents turned out to be a winning combination.
We cannot thank all the gang enough (including the littlest members of the Christian Michael family) for making the first official day of our engagement so special. We can't wait to sit back in our floating rocking chairs when we are old and grey (we'll have the technology by then, right?) and look back on this time in our lives.
