Simon &  Nanna
One night he had a dream to propose  with a particular type of candy.  She heard about his dream, but didn’t think too much about it. He went and bought the candy and when he  came home, he asked her to close her eyes. Next moment she had the sweet taste of candy in her month

She opened her eyes,
He was on one knee
She was crying
He asked the question
She said yes

Love, beautiful stories and happiness, would be three descriptive words to describe this relationship. Having been dear friends since high school, these two fit together like salt and pepper, cheese and crackers, tom and jerrys. Their love and affection for each other is so enduring, much like the soft glow around clouds and leaves in the sunset, it leaves you warm and refreshed at the same time. I had the privilege of shooting some photos for them in a very quick photo shoot ( I think we shot for less than 40 min) in a short window of time when the sun was shining upon us in England . Looking through these photos I can not help but feel the same warmth and affection that they have for each other through the soft glances between them, the tenderness of their smiles and the joy in their faces. Everything is so special about this couple, from their engagement story to the way they hold hands and the date of their wedding.

Nanna is here on exchange doing her masters from Denmark  so while Simon was visiting for the weekend I offered to take a few photos for them. I met Nanna while being here in Leeds and she has honestly been so caring and kind . She is so loving and one of those rare people, who when she says “How are you?” actually means it and will sit and listen to you about what’s been happening in your life. When I asked Nanna and Simon what they did over the weekend they said they had spent an hour in a book store picking a book each. They plan to read through their books and once they have each finished, to send the books back to each other and swap over.

Like I mentioned before this couple is super cute

have a look at the date of their wedding:

Wedding day = March 14th 2015=  3/14/15  = 3.1415 = Pi to 4 decimal places

Thankyou Simon and Nanna for an amazing afternoon
