Woodland pre-wedding stroll with plenty of sunshine, bluebells, and a chocolate labrador too

the-dignums-pre-wedding-engagment-photography-grace-paul-1Apparently research has proven that couples that laugh together are in it for the long haul. It must be true, as Grace and Paul had already been together for nearly eight years before we met up for their pre-wedding photo shoot last spring. And as you'll see below in their photos, these guys make each other laugh, a lot! It's a joy to see, and to photograph. We met up in Baggeridge Country Park, Staffordshire along with Nancy, their chocolate labrador, where we had a fun stroll through the woods.

We'll leave it to Grace to tell you a little bit about her and Paul, and what we got up to:

"We met on a blind date down the pub. I took two friends in case he turned out to be a nutter. 🤪 It turned out that he was a bit of a nutter, but it was something I actually like about him. It's been nearly 8 years and he still won't let me forget that I brought two mates on our first date. We got engaged on Easter Monday 2016. We were on a family holiday to my parents’ caravan in Wales and went for a meal, just the two of us. On the walk back he kept trying to get me to stop and sit down but I was having none of it. In the end it was almost pitch black and he just grabbed me and got down on one knee. It was so dark I could barely see the ring! I was so shocked that he planned this and I never even cottoned on. He had had the ring for months and had even tried it on me in my sleep 😅"

"We wanted to bring the Nancy along with us on our pre-shoot, so Phil suggested Baggeridge Park. It was fabulous. We really enjoyed the photoshoot. It was great to spend some time before the wedding in a more relaxed way, getting used to the camera. We really wanted Nancy to join us, partly because she is a legend, but she's also a big part of our lives, and will be walking me down the aisle on our wedding day!" 

"Our advice to those planning their wedding day too, is try not to stress and don't listen to other people, it's your day, so you do what you want, don't let them piss you off!
