Cheshire engagement shoot by Matt Bowen Photography

I do love a little bit of lurve on a miserable wet Friday morning! 

.

Laura and Rob (along with Matt Bowen Photography) took to the hills to celebrate their engagement with this beautiful and endearing little shoot as the sheep looked on.

.

All together now… ahhh!  (Or should that be baaa?).

.

This is their love story…

Laura says:  Rob woke me up really early on Christmas Day to go to get my present and as I had been nagging for a pet I was not expecting a ring at all! Whilst driving Rob pulled over because a ‘wheel felt funny’ and when he asked me to help he was on one knee and we happened to be at the top of a hill over looking my favourite view. It was perfect timing as all our family we near us for Christmas!

.

We are planning to tie the knot in July 2013 in Knutsford, Cheshire.

We first met through mutual friends at a friends gig.  Rob had told our friends he wanted to be out the next time I was out so our first date was sprung on me! We instantly clicked and he made me feel so at ease and was so funny, I knew we had to see each other again.

I knew he was “the one” at Leeds festival 2006 watching Foo Fighters play Everlong – I just knew everything was meant to be.

I love how we can have so much fun and laughs just doing nothing at all, even if his worst habit is throwing his socks off every night until there are a gazillion pairs scattered all over! My worst habit is always being late… I promise I wont be late down the aisle!

I hope we never stop having fun doing nothing at all!

We decided to have an engagement shoot to get used to having professional pictures taken before the big day.

I was actually a lot more nervous than I thought I would and going out the night beforehand probably wasn’t the best idea! Matt did a brilliant job and we’ve come away with some wonderful pictures to frame.
