A few weeks ago Warren and I had an engagement shoot with Anneli Marinovich. She is super talented and has been featured in many international wedding magazines - (In fact, since booking an engagement shoot with her - every UK Wedding Magazine that I browse through I keep stumbling on her awesome photos and poking Warren in the ribs with "LOOK! LOOK! ANNELI'S PICTURES! LOOK!" - Warren loves it when I do this).
We had our engagement shoot on Southbank in London - on the bridge overlooking Big Ben and the London Eye. Anneli was SO easy and fun to be around (very nb for a photographer) and when we first met her at Waterloo Station nearby she said: "Before we do anything - let's get a drink"
Me to Warren: I like her already.
The whole afternoon was loads of fun and it was sadly over before we knew it! (Even Warren was having such a good time - that he couldn't believe we had already been snapping pics for three hours - we just wanted it to go on and on!) Here are a few of Anneli's awesome snaps from the day - It's a bit of Warren/Che overload for indieBerries - but eh.... one for the grandkids.
(And yes, I even changed my blog layout to make space for bigger pictures.
How very nerdish of me. lols)
In Korea where I was teaching for three and a half years there is a famous bridge near Seoul Tower where lovers attach locks to symbolise their commitment to each other. These "Locks of Love" I think were started in Europe - probably Paris. Anyway, I love the idea of it - and Warren and I decided to hook up a little lock to Hungerford Bridge. There are only about three or four other locks on the bridge - so ours is one of the first few. We even had ours engraved - 'cause we're hectic like that.

We wrote letters to each other to be opened at the picnic.
Warren is doing a hectic ab-workout in this picture.
