“Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.” – Ernest Hemingway.
Well Natasha must have taken heed of Hemingways’ advice, as she embarked on her first ever European trip with her boyfriend and came back with a fiancé !! (See their story below the photos)
I had so much fun shooting Damon and Natasha, they were very accommodating to all my crazy suggestions ( think the red wine did help) and just an all round pleasure to spend an afternoon with. I found it very hard to choose which pics to include in this post – i hope you enjoy the *few* that I have chosen :)
Congratulations D&T , you have a wonderful future ahead of you – as Mr & Mrs xoxo
Q&A with the stunning Bride to be
Congratulations on your engagement , tell us about the proposal ?
It was our first trip to Europe together, a trip of a lifetime since it was something I’d been planning for nearly 10 years :) We were in Pamplona (Spain) for the San Fermin Festival, the running of the bulls, it was the opening ceremony & and my birthday! After an amazing fireworks display, he gave me a box filled with white paper, but there was 1 yellow page that stood out! I carefully took it out and on it was written the most beautiful love letter, when I had finished reading it and I looked up and he popped the question :) The rest is history…
Have you started planning the wedding yet ?
Absolutely, I can’t help myself :) We’re tying the knot on the 25th of January 2013 in the Magaliesburg mountains, South Africa, at the stunning Red Ivory Lodge.
Where are you sourcing inspiration from ?
I’m going for a vintage inspired theme; so lots of pastels, lace, pearls etc! The great thing about being a modern bride is that we have so much information at our fingertips! I love The Pretty Blog & Style Me Pretty, but have also drawn a lot of inspiration from some of my suppliers – Splendid Affairs (flowers & decor) and Moonbeams & Polka Dots (gorgeous wedding stationary). Another great way of getting inspiration is by looking at wedding photography blogs, just like this one!
Have you chosen a honeymoon destination yet ?
Yes! We’re plan on spending our honeymoon sipping cocktails on the white beaches of Zanzibar.
