Marie and James: Customs House wedding, Brisbane
I never, ever get sick of hearing about my client’s wedding proposals – everyone always has such a wonderful story to tell. Some have been dramatic and creative, others have been funny and some have been intimate and emotional. My latest clients, Marie and James have a cracker of a proposal story and I’m happy to share it with you today (I think you’ll agree Marie would make an excellent photographic assistant; the girl has focus).
I’ll let Marie tell the story…
How did you guys meet? Marie – “Way back in 2008, I was introduced to James by my oldest sister Catherine who had known James for a number of years. We went on a double date with Catherine and her new, but still partner, Michael at the Mecca Bar at Emporium.”
Tell me about your proposal. Marie – “We went over to Europe in Christmas 2012 and we took the opportunity to visit Stonehenge. In the middle of sleet falling horizontally, causing all the other tourists to rush inside, I took it as an opportunity to get a clear photo and turned around to find James on one knee. I finished my photos and asked James to do it again!”
What’s your wedding vision? “We want our wedding to be remembered by our friends and family as a day filled with love and joy”.
