Fiona & Andrew : Engaged | Botanic Gardens, Glasgow

fa_008.jpg

The weather god hasn't been too kind to us this summer, really, so it was a lovely surprise to photograph Fiona and Andrew's engagement shoot in blissful sunshine... well until it started to rain again, and we had to seek refuge in Kibble Palace. And then we continued outside. Yes, it was THAT changable. It was the first time I met Fiona & Andrew in person but within minutes I realised that we would get on just fine - when Fiona said something about the fact that she enjoys "being organised" :)

Fiona told me that Andrew popped the question in Cambridge, where Fiona worked for a year. It was a bit of a whirlwind - in a matter of days, she was engaged, had a new job in Glasgow and was moving back home... Fascinating how your whole life can change direction so quickly, I can totally relate to that.

Fiona and Andrew are getting married in the lovely Glasgow University Memorial Chapel in August next year, followed by a reception at the Glynhill Hotel. Really looking forward to capturing their day for them :)
