Surrounded by friends and family, Beth and Scott tied the knot at Crumplebury in Worcester

Beth and Scott met while on a photography course. “Scott was learning about portrait photography, and I was the subject,” says Beth. “We kept in touch as acquaintances over several years before developing a stronger friendship which blossomed into a relationship. We bonded over our slightly warped sense of humour and love of all things vintage. Aside from his good looks, I love Scott for his intelligence and how when he is talking about something he is passionate about, it’s infectious, and you can’t help but be excited with him. He is there for me and supports me in everything I do. He gives me the confidence to break out of my comfort zone and travel to new places.”

Scott tell us about the proposal: “I had lots of ideas of how to propose to Beth, but so many were either predictable or too obvious. It takes a lot to catch Beth by surprise and so it had to be something completely random. I decided to make a cake and use icing around the cake to ask the question (along with the ring). Typically, Beth did not make it easy! All my planning on the day was thwarted by Beth having a nightmare day at work which meant I had to go and pick her up. Thankfully, I just had enough time to finish the baking and the all-important decoration. Upon getting home, Beth went upstairs to get changed and, on her return, found me standing in our kitchen with a cake which I turned to reveal the words “will you marry me?” before getting down on one knee with the ring. Needless to say, the proposal took Beth completely by surprise and turned a bad day into an incredible one. Just in case the cake and the ring were not quite enough to seal the deal, I had also booked a table at a restaurant we both wanted to try and presented her with another box; this one containing a new dress and shoes for her to wear that night.”
