If You Go Down To The Woods Today – Danyell & Paul’s Engagement Shoot

Today on Marry Me Ink I get to share with you this beautiful woodland engagement shoot from Daz Mack Photography.  

We’ve been together for nearly 4 years  first 2 long distance as im from Edinburgh, Pauls from Stockton, the other 2 years have been together in Middlesbrough. 

I had saw a picture of Paul on Instagram on sick  plugs page which we both followed he was posing with his storm trooper plugs in and I liked the look of him (his big beautiful eyes) so I had to check his profile out. He had on there that he was an artist and that he did commissions. As I’m pretty outgoing and confident I thought I’d get in touch and get him to draw me something.

I requested Vincent Price with a haunted house and a evil nurse from the silent hill game. We quickly became friendly which then in turn turned flirty, I received my commission which I still love to this day.
We kept in touch texting every day. At first Paul was hesitant to make things go further due to the long distance between us. Him in Stockton and myself in Edinburgh two different countries.

A Short time passed and I gave him an ultimatum as I really liked him and I wanted to be more and didn’t want to waste my time so I Said I can’t wait forever.I then was asked on a couple of dates with another guy. Which made me feel that all I wanted to be, was with Paul. As we continued to talk during this he knew I was on these dates which made him step up and take the leap of trying a long distance relationship with me. (Some people call it jealousy I think he just realised what he could of lost.) A month past and then in December 2013, He drove up to Edinburgh to see me. As I’m old fashioned,which he already knew from various conversations we had previously if he wanted me to be his girlfriend he had to ask me. Which he did after less than an hour in my flat. Then the long distance love rollercoaster began. We are very romantic to each other making our own cards or presents for each other for anniversaries and just being thoughtful and caring.

Paul is a talented and hard working tattooist @watsonsith and our life is focused around this as its what he loves and I support and help him in his success. He’s my Bear and I’m his Bunny (like the masks) we both have our bunny and bear tattoos for each other too.

How beautiful is this enagagement shoot? I can’t to share with you their wedding which will also be on the blog next week – Make sure you pop back to see it in all it’s glory – It’s an good one! Thanks to both Danyell, Paul and Daz Mack Photography for sharing with Marry Me Ink today.

 

LOVE LETTERS – Alex & Mick’s Woodland Engagement Shoot

Today on Marry Me Ink, I thought I’d start the week off with this gorgeous couple from Daz Mack Photography. Alex and Mick had the engagement shoot whist taking their dogs out for a walk – It’s super cute! They both took the time to tell me about their time together and plans for their upcoming wedding.

We met in my then local pub, watching the boxing. I spied Mick across a snooker table, saw his joker smile (back before he grew in the beard) and knew I had to try and seduce him. Oh so slick, I chatted him up and bragged about my upcoming business and gave him a card. Later on he came around to find me and give me the card back – “I’m sure you’re a nice lass but some other blokes have just been showing me the exact same calling card. Maybe some other time.” (I’d been drunkenly throwing them around at the bar in an attempt to look impressive and boorish). I was devastated, I ran out after him but he had already gone. 

Three days later I got a cheeky text message, letting me know he’s played a dog’s trick and already had put my number in his phone before he returned the card. “Have you been thinking about me?”. It’s been 5 years of pranking, teasing and generally trying to get the upper-hand ever since.

One day, we’d said we would go into town for late night Christmas shopping but I had a nightmare of a day at work and wasn’t feeling the holiday vibe. I got home and he was dressed to the nines and ready to head out – despite my best efforts to cause a row and keep us at home to do it another night – so off we went.

He walked me up and down the high street under the lights, we got festive drinks to go and he soon warmed me around. “There’s a reason I wanted so badly to come into town tonight, ” he said, dropping on bended knee under the town clock.  “Are you kidding me–?” I stammered, feeling like a right shrew.

Today on Marry Me Ink, I get to share with you this gorgeous themed engagement shoot from Luna Photographie. They had the cutest Great Gatsby themed shoot in the woods and on the beach – I can’t wait for you to hear their story!

Andy and Leah met their sophomore year of college in an English class. They just happened to sit next to each other, and their professor warned the class that they may be sitting next to a future spouse. Little did they know, they were!

Andy asked Leah out every semester, but she said no until their senior year. He took Leah to an Italian restaurant and ice skating. It was then Leah realised Andy was the man of her dreams.
