Love Letters – A Glorious Sunset


Yesterday wasn’t so sunny here in Manchester, so I thought I’d remind us all of the glorious weather we’ve been having lately with this gorgeous shoot from Darren Mack Photography of Kayleigh and Chris’ engagement! (Seriously, the suns through the trees is making me all smiley!)


We met when I started working at Morrisons in the salad bar. Chris worked in the cafe, I was 17 and he was 24. He caught my eye straight away and I had caught his too (I was totally oblivious to this) he would walk through my department at least 10 times a shift (which I didn’t mind cause I liked to look at him bum as he walked by!)


After a little while one of the girls that works with Chris in the cafe was teasing me “I know some one who likes you!”. This went on for months, it started to really annoy me cause I wanted to know if it was the same person I liked.. Eventually I cracked and had a moan at work colleague (I called her Nanna as she’s in her 60’s) and told her about the teasing and that I wanted to know if it was the guy that I was after! At that, I went on my break and when I came back she said “I’ve solved your problem and yes it is Chris that likes you” – I was mortified! I felt so embarrassed!


Later in the shift, he walked through the department again and smirked at me as he went by. I went as red as a tomato cause I knew he knew I fancied him! When he came back through the next time, he stopped and asked me if I wanted to go for a drink sometime (at this point I was mopping the floors.. sexy!) I stuttered a childish yes! He then went on to explain that it would have to be in 2 weeks time as he was skint and had to wait till pay day.. Romantic!


Chris proposed this year on the 21st of April. I was feeling sorry for myself cause me and Phoebe had had a tummy bug the day before (which stopped us going out to a family members house the night before). I was sat on the sofa in the dining room, Phoebe was in bed and my Mum, Dad and Chris were in the kitchen. He simply walked over to his coat, pulled the box out of his pocket and said “I know something that will cheer you up!” He got down on one knee in front of me while my parents were watching and popped the question “Will you marry me?” so at that my reply was “Are you taking the p*ss?” I then went on to take the ring out of the box and say “is it real?!”. Then after a lot of “Are you sure?” and “Are you sure this isn’t a joke?” questions, I finally said yes. I later learnt that he was going to ask me the night previous at my uncles house infront of the whole family but me and Phoebe being ill had ruined that plan!


We both have the same tattoo on our right foot of our son’s hand and foot print and date of birth. We had him before Phoebe, but unfortunately I went into early labour at 23 weeks and 3 days. He was born 16 weeks early. He was born alive and lived for 9 hours and we remember him by the matching tattoos we have.


When choosing my wedding dress, I wanted a dress that shows the tattoo on my chest. I was the first big one I got and still to this day is still my fave!


How awesome and relaxed does Kayleigh & Chris’ engagement shoot look? I love Kayleigh’s hair colour and dress! I can’t wait to see their wedding. Be sure to leave them both and Darren Mack Photography some love!
