Amy and Ruth’s Romantic and Dreamy Cusworth Hall Engagement Shoot
Amy and Ruth chose to have a Cusworth Hall engagement shoot on a gorgeously sunny Sunday afternoon. I always ask my couples if there are any places that mean a lot to them or if they have landmarks with any significance to their relationship. So Amy and Ruth took me to Cusworth Hall for their engagement shoot as this was initially the place where Amy was going to propose. We had a picnic in the grounds of the beautiful building and I heard all about why this place was so special to them.
Cusworth Hall is very close to where the couple live and they often take long walks here from their house. Amy said that she had originally planned to propose to Ruth at Cusworth Hall. On the day she had arranged a picnic – not unlike the one that we enjoyed together – and she was going to get down on one knee in the beautiful gardens. However, mother nature had other intentions. The rain started pouring and Amy knew that this would not be the right time to do it. Despite having carried the ring around with her for two weeks; Amy’s plan had been wrecked. Later in the day the sun came out and the couple took a walk down the canal near their house. It was here along a walk they did so much that Amy got down on one knee and proposed to Ruth, who of course said YES!
It just shows that even if you plan a grand proposal, sometimes the simple and most emotional declarations are in places that are unexpected and completely natural. I have had the pleasure of knowing Ruth and Amy for nearly ten years and when they asked me to photograph their wedding I was over the moon. They are planning a DIY tipi wedding at the glorious Inkersall Grange Farm with their closet friends and family. On a personal level I am so ecstatic to photograph this wedding; because who does not want to take pictures of their bestest friends getting hitched? Take a look at their gorgeous engagement photographs and stay tuned for the wedding!
