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.

 

Tea, Cake & The Engagement Shoot – Lisa & Adam

The first engagement shoot of 2017 is filled with my favourite things – Tea and cake (and also gorgeous tattoos!) I’ll let Lisa tell you all about Adam’s perfect proposal and afterwards they had their engagement shoot in  Llangollen – a town full of vintage wares and the idyllic “Vintage Rose Tea Room” with Abigail Joan Photographer.

Adam and I decided to book a weekend away together for our one year anniversary in October of 2015. We wanted something different so headed off to spend a few days glamping in a beautiful yurt in Cumbria. 

On the first night, we settled into our new surroundings and lit a campfire. Toasting marshmallows and playing board games, it was a refreshing change from our usual technology-filled evenings. Our yurt was located by the lake and was so peaceful. 

Later that night, we got comfy in our hideaway and snuggled up under blankets. It was then that Adam asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes! He presented me with a beautiful vintage art deco engagement ring and I fell in love with him just a little more after that! (I jest of course, but it was a stunner)

Spiryt & I met by him stalking me at work at the mall (I truly thought “Wow, this guy is kind of awesome for thinking that I am this cool to be that into me” and it was kind of endearing). He worked upstairs for Verizon at the time, & I was a retail manager at Bath & Body Works. One of my friends, Asia, that worked with Spiryt had mentioned that he was wanting to ask me out.

She showed me a picture of him on her phone (this is back in 2006 when smartphones were super pixelated). All I saw were these amazing dreadlocks, and I was intrigued by his Lenny Kravitz-like looks.. I was geeking out that this really attractive guy wanted to meet me.

Asia kept putting in the good word for Spiryt, and she set us up meeting for the 1st time. She said, “He is coming down after work today at 4:30 to meet you”. That day, I planned to leave work early but as soon as I was walking out of my store, there Spiryt was in all his glory. I smiled so big – he was definitely more than what I expected. Such a gentleman.

Tyler and I met online. Our experiences were quite different – I was the second person he met, he was more like 100th and I almost called the date off because I was so sick of online dating. I waited in the parking lot of Beacon Hill Park, and sat beside a peacock on the curb waiting by the petting zoo. Tyler was late, as his sister had just called to tell him she had an ultrasound and was having a baby girl (super cute memory now.) I was trying to avoid talking to a man who was barbecuing fish out of the back of his truck and telling me his life story. When I saw Tyler walk over, I leapt up and we had a good laugh about him rescuing me.

We went for a walk around the park, walked to the cemetery and looked at all the cool old headstones (we both love history). Then we doubled back to the park and sat on a bench and watched the ducks until dark. I sat in my car afterwards, “safety-calling” my mum, and said, “I really like him. He’s different.”
