After sharing our engagement photos here we thought it’d be the perfect time to share something very special with you.

We were lucky enough to have our engagements filmed. Sarah’s proposal was filmed by our good friend Alison, and  Laura’s by her wonderful Mum & Dad!

For years we have been watching it and re-watching it, and sharing it, and loving it, crying with happiness- even now. It captured such amazing moments.

Originally we started this blog to share and record our lives, so it makes perfect sense to have the video here.

Earlier this week we were reminded that we had never shared our Engagement photos. Or should that be enGAYment photos. We have shared a few on Instagram over the years but thought it was about time to share them in all there glory here.

In December 2012 we each planned our own marriage proposals. We were spending Christmas in Boise, Idaho – Laura’s home town,. Thankfully we both said yes. You can read all the details of our wedding planning by selecting ‘wedding’ above.   It meant when it came to engagement photos we wanted to take them in Boise. We were fortunate enough to head back to Boise in September 2013 to meet our wedding photographers. We took the opportunity to take our engagement photos.

Here’s the plan for those of you who have asked, or for those who maybe interested! For obvious reasons (WE ARE GETTING MARRIED) this blog is going to be very quiet for the next few weeks but you can keep up to date on whats happening.
Thank you to those of you already following we love to read your comments and thank you so much for the love and support!

So the plan:

Mirage we are coming for you!

Saturday 21st June: We’re on a jet plane heading to Vegas to arrive at 9pm local time! We have a party of 16 joining us so the fun starts here!

Sunday 22nd – Wednesday 25th June: Hanging out in Vegas, grabbing a limo, seeing Calvin Harris, making the most of American food and you know checking out Vegas! Also topping up the tan and starting to relax (hopefully). Plus Laura will be checking out ComicCon at some point #exciting!!!!

Wednesday 25th June: Next stop Boise, Idaho! Meeting up with family and friends who didn’t join us in Vegas to see the sites of Laura’s home town.

Thursday 26th – Friday 27th June: We also plan to float the Boise river, climb Table Rock to get the best vista of the city, show the non-American’s the joy of Walmart and all you can eat diners and other American treats.
Also at this point we’ll be fitting in a hair trial and other last minute wedding prep.
