29th Feb - Announcement

Hiya

Just though I'd share our happy news with everyone.

This evening, going with the date being the 29th Feb I proposed to Garrie and he accepted.

I'm on cloud 9 right now We haven't set a date or anything but I'm so pleased that Garrie has accepted and I look forward to spending the rest of our lives together

Cheers
Sus

Re: 20th Feb - Announcement

I have just had a thought.

When the day arrives you won't have a problem in find someone to photograph. Your problem will be choosing who to use.

We will of course expect to see pictures.

Re: 20th Feb - Announcement

Barr1e - of course - although violet on Corrie stoile my thunder - she proposed to Jamie - Garrie said 'I didn't realise it was the 29th' my reply - I did. Went over to my tamrac - got jewellers bag out, went down on one knee - handed him the jewellers bag containing ring box.
As he opened it I asked - well will you?
Istant reply that took my breath away - YES


Thanks everyone - I can't stop smiling

We've been together 7 years but tonight is a topper for me, happiest one of my life

Believe it or not - a close mate has already offered to photograph it lol

Kinda hoping I'll be able to take my camera too might get some shots from myself and G on the day too lol
Haven't got any dates set in mind yet, won't be for a year or so yet we don't rush things hehehe

How about we all attend and get the best shots we can

Same goes for anyone else's wedding - how about we all decend and get shots in

Thanks again

S & G

Re: 20th Feb - Announcement

LOL OVERWELMED!!

Today started with a dentist visit, then a few funky explores, one of which being a moth balled oiled fired power station, we failed, found another site which was live and exited sharpish! Found a cool Rest home and got some shots for a few hours, then left, made a bee line for home, almost ran out of petrol, TOMTOM was being a pain, got fuelled up and went home, got a bath, voddie and chilled out..

Susan asked me what day it was, I had no idea, she asked, I said YES (would be silly not too) and the rest is history

Love SUSAN oh and she loves togging too, sorted

Congratulations

Being a leap year does that mean another 4 years to the wedding.

Please dont tone map your wedding photos.

Wishing you all the best for your future.

PS I have been married 30 years(what an old git).How my wife put up with my photografic traits I dont know.

PPs hope this make sence,to much beer and wine.

mate that makes total sense It means I don't need to buy any gifts for 4 years, mint, lol..

HMMM tone mapped wedding shots, I;m sure I can find a a disused area for tone mapping, other than that we have a good mate thats a pro (although he taught me tone mapping)

Cheers Mate
