Alex and Audrey’s Brighton Engagement Shoot

What I love most about an engagement shoot is the fact that it’s a chance for you and your spouse to work closely with your photographer to capture your love before the pretence of the wedding. And, for those of you who are a little camera shy, an engagement shoot is a great way to become comfortable in front of the camera. This is why we are sharing Alex and Audrey’s real engagement. This beautiful shoot is the perfect example… read more

Real Engagement – Ivonette & Ken

Ken took Ivonette to Scotland, and if that wasn’t fun enough – he used that age-old trick of putting the small ring box inside a big box!

Ken When is your wedding? 14th September 2013 How and when did you meet? We met 4years ago in May and have been… read more

Real Engagement – Rachel & Chris

When your best friend gives the guy in the bar her “nod of approval”, it’s best to take note! This worked out very well for Capital FM’s Rachel – he put a ring on it in February, and was so nervous he forgot to wait for her answer! So far, the couple know one thing – they want to get married somewhere green and picturesque! Happy planning from Confetti! What is your first name? Rachel Who is the groom? Chris… read more

Mel & Ian

Real Engagement – Mel & Ian

Well what can I say about Ian’s proposal… he certainly didn’t rush into it! After 10 years of friendship and a further 5 years in a relationship he finally got down on one knee under the Eiffel Tower… but it wasn’t quite the romantic Parisian proposal he had planned, nor what films portray! Having decided to propose in the restaurant halfway up the Eiffel Tower we settled down to eat, with couples also on the same package as us sat… read more
