Catherine and Neil will be getting married in just over a months’ time at Close House and I cannot wait to capture it.  We met on a very cold, windy but beautiful Saturday morning in Durham for their pre wedding shoot.  They’re naturals in front of the camera.

I asked Catherine how they met and how Neil proposed – We were both on a night out with our friends and started chatting to each other in a bar in Newcastle! After a few texts Neil eventually asked me out on our first date… Which we ended up going on, both bringing along our best friends! We must of been nervous! However it went well and it all went from there, I’m glad to add our best friends didn’t come on anymore of our dates!

Four years later Neil decided to take advantage of some Seaham Hall Spa vouchers we were given and booked us in for a day spa. He’d asked my Dad’s permission the day before and all was organised. We were having a lovely relaxing day in the spa and just sat down for lunch when the waiter brought over some champagne that my dad had bought us (but it was a bit too premature as he hadn’t proposed yet!) a nervous Neil tried to cover his tracks and I was non the wiser so all back on track. Later in the afternoon Neil popped the question in the hot tub and I said yes and we were able to enjoy our champagne in style!
