Winter warmers – winter proposals and summer weddings

December 15, 2009

It is absolutely freezing today and I’m trying to keep warm by eating soup and the most delicious Lebkuchen (ginger bread), courtesy of Judit, my lovely friend in Stuttgart and bride to be. Can’t wait to photograph her big day next year… But while munching away and browsing through my wedding archives, I remembered the wedding of  the gorgeous Susie and Leo in Stranraer and our German connection. Susie had been working in Germany for a few years, in Schwaebisch Hall believe it or not, which is not far from the little village of Ellenberg where I’m from. Susie even speaks German with a southern accent. Absolutely brilliant! They had such a great wedding. The sun was shining and the location, a manor house garden was absolutely beautiful. When Leo proposed though it was winter and they were on a skiing holiday. On the third day, they were on the ski lift, when Susie looked down and someone had written: ‘SUSIE WILL YOU MARRY ME’ in the snow in big fat letters. Susie turned to Leo and said: ‘That lucky girl has the same name as me…’

Maybe not quite the reaction he’d expected, but the important thing is, she said yes.

Here are the best bits!
