Our Love Story - Catriona & Mikey (18)

We’re continuing the beauty on the blog today with the stunning engagement shoot and love story of soon to be husband and wife, Mikey and Catriona.

Looking like true professionals, this loved-up pair braved the cold and found an atmospheric spot up on the Pennies in Lancashire with their photographer Maddie for a set of stunning portraits that literally melt our hearts! We’re sure it will have you feeling the same way too!

With images by Maddie Farris Photography.

Our Love Story - Catriona & Mikey (15)

catriona says: We got engaged on Easter morning. We were lying in bed and I said to Mikey “Babe, are we gonna get married?” and he said “Of course we are” then I said “Can we get married next year?” and he said “Will that make you happy?” and I said “Yep” – and that was that!

Our wedding is set for 20th May 2017, at Hardcastle Craggs, which is situated in the National Trust woodlands at Hebden Bridge.

Our Love Story - Catriona & Mikey (28)

Mikey and I met whilst we were both working at nightclubs when we were at uni, three-and-a-half-years ago.

For our first date, we went to get coffee together. I’d made Mikey some homemade brownies and he says that’s when he knew he loved me.

What I love most about Mikey is how much he cares for me – I’ve been ill recently and he’s looked after me really well. He is very unorganised though, which means I have to nag him at times.

Mikey says that what he loves most about me is that I always look out for him and have his back. He says I’m gorgeous too – but then, so is he!

What I’m looking forward to most about married life is having his surname so we feel like a complete family unit.

As Mikey is usually behind the lens, we thought an engagement shoot would be a great opportunity for us to get some pictures together.

Our photographer Maddie suggested the location up on the moors. It was great, but it was freezing!

We were so happy with the results of the shoot that we decided to use the images on our invites and we have one of the pictures hanging on our wall.

During the planning process, we have found Brides Up North to be a great source of inspiration, and would love to return to the blog to share our wedding day with you all too!
