Brides Up North Uk Wedding Blog: Mandy Charlton

Lets get Sunday morning off to a cracking start! Wedding blog reader Jenny won a couple’s shoot and canvas of her choice with Mandy Charlton back in the Brides Up North Right Royal Giveaway Bonanza in April (only a month of giveaways to celebrate the Royal Wedding, just ‘cos we could) and that makes me extra specially thrilled to share Jenny and Dan’s story and photographs today on these pages.  Taken at St Andrews University, where the couple first met (where Mandy travelled especially for the shoot) the images are wet, windy and bursting with love.  Congratulations guys!

Let’s hear from Jenny:  We got engaged on the 21st of October, exactly a year and five months after we started dating. Dan decided to propose on a wet Thursday night down on the beach as he knew if he held off any longer and proposed at dinner or something that I would catch on, so it was a real surprise! We had some Chinese lanterns that I had been dying to release on the beach, and so he took me down just after dark and we set two off. After the second one was set off that was when he asked me to marry him!

We are planning on getting married next October 10th in South Africa, at a stunning venue called Olive Rock. I am originally from South Africa, and with all our family being spread across the world, there seemed no better place for us to choose for the entire family to meet.

We first met in McIntosh Hall in our first year at St Andrews University, it really is a matchmaking town in some ways! We didn’t really have a first date, but Dan had decided to give me a birthday present I had really wanted, the night before my birthday on the 22nd of May, and that was when I knew I definitely wanted to be with such a thoughtful and amazing person. The rest is history!

I knew he was the one from the beginning, and luckily it was the same for him too.

I love that even though we grew up in such different places, him in America and myself in Southern Africa, we have the same desires in life and love each other’s love for travelling! We are different in so many ways, but in the ways that matter most if you are going to live with someone for the rest of your life, we see eye to eye (usually!)

Our biggest wish for married life is to stay happy, no matter what life throws our way!

We were lucky enough to win an amazing engagement shoot from the fabulous Brides Up North! I would recommend Mandy Charlton to anyone, she was fantastic and professional, and her photographs were beautiful! Also, an engagement shoot with your wedding photographer will do wonders for your confidence in front of the camera, and the person you have chosen to record your special day, so go for it!

I love Brides Up North for so very many reasons! Firstly I know there are so very many posts that my bridal fix can be met at literally any time of the day, and if I am away for a few days I get a few hours of delicious treats! It has been wonderful to follow Julia’s story through her development of the Brides Up North wedding blog to her departure from her job, as it makes me feel closer to the blog in a way.  Also, the giveaways are amazing – clearly!

We would love to come back and share our Real Wedding photographs on the wedding blog.  They will add some international flair being taken in South Africa in the middle of their summer, and it would be a real honour to be featured again on Brides Up North, I cannot wait to share this engagement feature with all my family and friends!
