Good morning! I hope you are enjoying the week so far? It’s all busy here with gorgeous things coming in and new exciting weekly features happening! (To be announced next week!)
“We met doing something we both love, festivals! After attending years of the same festivals we found were both avid regulars on the Reading Festival forum and got involved in working the festival. We first met at a Halloween party hosted by one of the organisers. That’s where it all started, following that we had the difficult task of a long distance relationship, with him being from Kent and me from Reading.
” We spent every weekend together and all week on the phone, eventually he got a job in Reading and we haven’t looked back since! We decided to have a mega trip in America a couple of years ago, we spent nearly 4 weeks driving around Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, Death Valley, Yosemite National Park, San Francisco and all the way down the coast to Los Angeles and San Diego. That trip really influenced our falling in love with Las Vegas, once Phil proposed we knew that Vegas was the place for us to exchange our vows, It completely suits our personalities and requirements for a wedding!
“We regularly have ‘date nights’ and depending on pennies it can just be a cosy night in. Phil took this opportunity to cook for me (something he never does!) and we sat and watched a movie – Life As We Know It. Afterwards I suggested we go upstairs for some loving but he suggested we tidied up first (what has got into this guy?!)
He gave me the DVD box and as I pressed eject the disk came out with the words “Will you marry me?” written on the disk. I froze on the spot as our date night had fallen on April Fools Day, I was in shock and confusion on whether it was a prank, but when I finally turned to look at him he was sat there grinning holding out a ring.
“I only have three tattoos and to be honest they are pretty well covered. My main being on my lower back so would be covered up by my dress. The other two are on my feet/ankle, and I would happily show them off. I have been contemplating getting a shoulder piece before the wedding next year but it will depend on our savings!
“We don’t have any wedding/couples tattoos however we are planning on getting inked when we are in Vegas. It’s less about each others names or the date of the wedding but more about our experience of getting married and Vegas as a destination.”
How amazing is Phil and Kim’s story! So amazing and such an awesome engagement shoot! Don’t forget to leave them some love and a huge thanks to Craig Dearsley and Phil and Kim for sharing their photos and stories with us!
