I created my blog so I could share my stationery tips as well as helping answer some of my most asked questions, to help you get the most of not only your stationery but your big day too! As well as this, I also wanted to share my wedding planning journey so that hopefully I can help any engaged couples with any real-life tips or tricks, share some of the wonderful suppliers I have worked with first hand and hopefully help with any inspiration and guidance for your special day.
First up, our engagement story… I love hearing about engagement stories so please feel free to pop me a message with your own story too!
So a little about us, me and my partner Kieran have been together since 2013. We actually met at a concert for a local band called Canary Swing; he was filming the show and I was in the crowd watching. We then started talking on Instagram and as they say, the rest is history! Here’s the first-ever photo of us on our first date, where we went to Gloucester Docks to watch the fireworks.
Fast forward to April of 2019 where Kieran (finally!!) proposed! It was a warm April day so we decided to go to the forest; I’ve always loved going to the forest as I always find it so relaxing and I used to visit there a lot when I was younger with my family too! So Kieran did so well in choosing the perfect spot for it. I also love the idea of going back every year and having a picnic in the same place! Do you have any ‘engagement anniversary’ traditions?
We walked around for a little while and then came to a beautiful private spot hidden amongst the trees, where Kieran stopped and said “This would be great for a photo” so set up his camera on a tripod in self-timer mode. We took a couple of photos and as I was about to carry on my journey Kieran stopped and asked for one more photo. This time as we posed for the photo, he got down on one knee, said lots of mushy stuff and popped the question. And of course, I said Yes! We even caught the moment on camera…
I hope you enjoyed reading about our engagement story! As I mentioned please send me yours as I love to ready them. Next up will be how we chose our wedding venue which we actually booked a couple of weeks after we got engaged, as well as how we chose our time of the year. I will also share some of my favourite venues that we looked at!
Love George x
