Kristen and Danni had been together for just over a year when they got engaged. They’d talked about marriage and I said that Kristen had always wanted to be the one that was asked rather than the one doing the asking. After dropping lots of hints nothing happened so Kristen stopped mentioning. Kristen and Danni went to stay with friends as they had signed up to do a torch run through Dalby Forest. Danni had planned to pop the question on their walk through the forest but Kristen decided she didn’t want to go for a walk, wanting to save her energy for the run. With a quick change of plan Danni decided to ask her on the run instead, however, Kristen had to drop out! The next day it was decided that they’d go for a walk around Whitby Abbey, this is where it finally happened. Danni handed Kristen a bottle which had a little note inside as she opened the bottle Danni got down on one knee and Kristen read the message on the little piece of paper “I love you, will you marry me?”. A small crowd had stopped to watch the events unfold and as Kristen said ‘Yes’ they clapped.
It’s now August and I’m in York to Photograph Kristen and Danni’s wedding. It’s a lovely summer's day warm and bright, a great day for an outside wedding. The brides are getting ready with family and friends all around them. It’s a lovely atmosphere and quite calm in both houses although there is an air of excitement.
The wedding is at Villa Farm, there is a lovely wooden building at the end of a long walkway through the grass, the chairs are set up and the guests are ready as first Kristen then Danni walk down the aisle accompanied by a bagpiper in full scottish dress.
The tipi is set up with music albums everywhere instead of table names, it’s a lovely nod to Kristen’s musical passion. Later she picks up her guitar and sings a few songs to Danni.
It’s a lovely wedding and I hope you enjoy looking through the photos. Congratulations Mrs & Mrs Parker- Rankine!
