On a crisp and sunny early afternoon in December, Manish got down on one knee and proposed to Ruchika. She of course said yes!
Rewind a few weeks, Manish contacted me to ask about my availability and advice on capturing this special moment. After offering various suggestions on locations and dates, we both agreed that Hughenden Manor in Buckinghamshire would be an ideal location. With a stunnning location and grounds, we knew we would get some lovely portraits. It was just the small matter of hoping for great weather.
And we were not disappointed. The day arrived and the weather was perfect as I turned up early to scout the grounds. With some covert communications with Manish on the morning, I shared my exact location and waited for him and Ruchika to arrive.
It worked out perfectly. They both turned up to the spot I had suggested and Manish got down on one knee. I was in position to capture it all.
It was a really special moment between both of them and Ruchika was certainly suprised. Although she did later confess that she kind of had a feeling something was going to happen because Manish was acting a little strange all morning(!)
Afterwards, we took advantage of the lovely early afternoon Winter light with some intimate portraits around the grounds of Hughenden Manor. Manish & Ruchika even got some ‘congratulations’ and ‘you both look lovely’ thrown at them by fellow visitors.
I had a great time capturing this special moment for Manish & Ruchika. It will definitely live long in the memory for these two and I was only glad to document it for them. Here are some of the highlights from their day:
