Engagement shoot

by Crofts & Kowalczyk Photography

Fife-Scotland

You’d be forgiven for thinking that this super sunny e-shoot took place overseas, but it is in fact set in a picturesque Scottish coastal village. Something tells us these photos will have you longing to feel the sand between your toes and to bask in the warm sea breeze with the one you love. And furry friends are always a bonus…

We’d love to hear the story of how you first met…
We met in Chester in 2006 when we were studying at the College of Law. We were in the same classes and we just hit it off instantly.
And tell us about your engagement – where was the question popped?
David proposed just outside Bath on a cold, crisp, autumnal day in November 2011. We live in London and had decided to escape the city for a quiet weekend in the countryside to get some fresh air and curl up next to a log fire. The sun was out when we arrived at our hotel, so we decided to go for a walk. We did not get far, as David proposed in a nearby spot that had a picturesque view overlooking a valley with horses in a paddock nearby. The sun came out for the occasion and it was such a wonderful and exciting moment.
Was it a surprise?
Yes and no. We had been dating for 7 years and living together for about 5 years, so we had talked about marriage and knew that it was what we both wanted but I did not know he would propose that weekend.

What made you pick this location for your e-shoot?
We decided to have our engagement shoot in Elie, which is a little coastal village in Fife. My parents have a cottage there and have been visiting it for decades, so it has always been a special place for me. Regular trips to Elie together and with friends and family over the years meant that David also has fond memories of it and we did not think about having our engagement shoot anywhere else. We love walking my family dogs, Alice and Poppy, on the beach, so it was lovely to be able to include them in a few of the pictures as well.
And tell us about your wedding day…
We got married last November at St Michael’s Parish Church in Linlithgow and had the reception at Dundas Castle. It was a typical Scottish wedding with kilts, bagpipes, a ceilidh and a really good party with all our family and friends.
