We’re brightening up your Tuesday with this cool, urban engagement shoot (and accompanying love story) captured in Manchester city centre.

Carefree couple Oliver and Dawn, wanted a fun and playful shoot which reflected their love for one another, and we have to say, we think their photographers absolutely smashed the brief with vibrant street art backdrops, a mix of relaxed and intimate poses and a whole lot of hair swishing! We love!

dawn says: We got engaged on New Year’s Eve 2017. It was magical surprise overlooking the beautiful city of Edinburgh. It was like all of Scotland was there to help us celebrate during the Hogmanay that evening.

We have set the date of our wedding for August this year, and have picked the stunning Hengrave Hall in Suffolk, as our venue.

Oli and I first met at Pennyhill Park Hotel in Surrey, where Oliver worked as a chef and I worked as a waitress during the holiday season when I was back from university.

For our first date Oli took me bowling and was a complete gentleman (a trait I love about him). We had a few drinks and reminisced about the old days.

I realised Oli was the one for me from our very first date. He was caring, funny and had such a lovely personality that I knew I wanted him by my side for the rest of my life.

What I love most about Oli is his honesty and smile! His most annoying habit on the other hand is falling asleep in the middle of the day on the sofa.

oliver says: I knew that Dawn was the one after she sent me on a treasure hunt all around her flat leading me to a door key so that I could visit her as much as I possibly could – I will never forget that day.

Dawn’s sense of humour and stunning looks are what I love most about her. Her worst habit however is leaving her empty contact lenses cases everywhere in the house.
