Kate and Danny had the most glamorous of engagement shoots in one of my favourite places, beautiful York. They met as children and as fate would have it, they then found one another in their twenties. Once Danny proposed in the Lake District they started to plan their eclectic vintage wedding.
I love these two, from their style to their connection, they make for an incredible set of images.
Thanks so much to the amazing James Melia Photography for sharing his imagery with us today.
“We met at the age of 6 and 9 as our Dad’s played football together! We then didn’t see each other again until high school – although at that stage we didn’t socialise in the same circles.”
“After high school Danny moved away to Manchester, while I went to study in Lancaster and it wasn’t until we were 22 and 25 that our eyes met across a crowded Yorkshire pub at the party of a mutual friend. We then became the best of mates, which shortly became a romance… the rest is history!”
“Danny proposed to me on top of a mountain in the Lake District. When we reached the summit there was a horrendous storm – we crouched against a dry stone wall to shelter from the rain and wind (and to eat our tuna butties!) – and that is when he asked me to marry him!”
“The wedding day was an eclectic mixture of vintage (particularly 1960s). We also had Morris Dancers, a Wurlitzer cinema organ (we entered the wedding reception sat on the organ as it rose up through the stage) and a soul band for the evening entertainment.
The wedding was a real family and friends effort – from the dress to the flowers, music, table decorations and invitations to name but a few!”
“We chose to have the pre-wedding shoot in York – we both spent a lot of time there when growing up and my sister Hayley has also recently opened a vintage shop and wedding boutique there (Glory Days Vintage) which is where some of the pictures were taken, and my 1960s bespoke made wedding dress was created!”
Thanks so much to Kate and Danny for sharing their story with us :-) XOXO Lou
