We’re Engaged!



B had just got back from work, I’d just finished cleaning and the sun was still shining – so he convinced me to go on a walk. We went to Svartediket, which is a beautiful lake in the city. We were planning on walking to the end of the track that leads to a waterfall, but I wasn’t feeling so good so we cut the journey short. On our way back around the lake, we paused at a smaller waterfall. As I was peering down on it, B got down on one knee! (For a split second, I just thought he was tying his shoelace!) Then he said “Stacey Shaw, would you like to get engaged?”, then he asked me to marry him! ūüôā I said yes! It was all very surreal – I always imagined I would cry like they do in the movies, but I was actually shocked and surprised!¬†ūüėä

ūüí欆– I love how the emoji reminds me of my engagement ring! It’s a rainbow moonstone – so in some light, it looks blue.¬†ūüíô

Couples Shoot

A few weeks ago, Bj√łrnar and I were lucky enough to have some professional photographs taken by two wonderful British photographers. Jamie, who I met a year ago when he was the photographer at my cousin’s wedding in England, had made arrangements¬†to travel to Bergen and do a styled shoot with some models, and asked if we would¬†like to have a couples shoot.

Despite never doing anything like this before, the offer was too good to refuse! After having my hair and makeup done by two lovely Norwegian ladies, we headed to the botanical gardens in Milde.

After having a week of sunshine and high temperatures, the weather was quite the opposite that particular day!  Luckily the rain held off though, but my choice of footwear could have been better! I was constantly sinking into the mud with my stiletto heels! Throughout the shoot, Jamie made us feel comfortable and directed us so that we knew what to do.

Afterwards, we also had the pleasure of having some more photographs taken by the lovely Elly; one of the models for the styled shoot.

Overall, the outcome was fantastic! We had a wonderful day and now have a lovely set of photographs that we can cherish for a long time.
