Pre-Wedding Photography - Ursula and Andrew's Story

VOTING IS NOW CLOSED IN THIS COMPETITION...


 

Here's our 4th of our couples hoping to win a pre-wedding photoshoot in Florence.

English Rose to Wed Canuck!

If it hadn’t been for Andrew’s desire for travel, the two of us would never have met! We started off as work colleagues, became friends and the rest, as they say, is history.  We are a very romantic couple that love taking adventures together and we are so happy that we found each other.   

The Proposal

Andrew had originally planned to propose on Ursula’s 30th birthday over a champagne picnic at a picturesque location, but due to a Volcanic explosion in Iceland, the ring was delayed from Canada by a week and plans had to be postponed. Andrew finally got the opportunity to get down on one knee (after asking her father) and she said YES.

The Location

We kept our families guessing for months with promises of the Italian lakes or flip flops on a beach in Fiji but we finally opted for a church wedding on the “bonnie bonnie” banks of Loch Lomond Scotland.

We are planning a traditional “English-Canadian” wedding in Scotland and although we have not progressed far in preparations, we have booked a beautiful loch-side venue that is truly stunning.  One of the most important parts of our wedding is having our family and friends from near and far with us on our special day.

Why Us?

Our first holiday together was in Rome and watching the sun go down over the Vatican while listening to a choir has stayed in our hearts.  Italy has always been very special to us and we would love to build on these memories in Florence as this would be a dream come true.

With Andrew being a keen photographer, we rarely have an opportunity to get photos together and we would relish the opportunity to have pre-wedding shots.  We also think this would be an amazing experience to work with a professional photographer to understand the “do’s and don’ts” of what to do before our big day. 

So you take the high road and I’ll take the low road and hopefully we’ll see you in Florence.

    Andrew and Ursula are the most sweet couple and really deserve this photoshoot. They had their hearts set on an italian wedding but, in the end, it was not viable for them and their families. This will add so much to their wedding experience and go so far towards giving them some of their Italian dream.

    Andrew and Ursula thoroughly deserve this treat not just because of the love they share for each other but also the love and care they give to their nearest and dearest. Their story is truly a lovely one and would even make the ever so romantic Italians proud! Please pick them as winners to celebrate their amore.
