Katherine and Tim
I thought we’d do another double header of engagement goodness today! First up we have Kat and Tim who took over one of Perth’s abandoned fairground with photographer Emma Pointon for a laid back fun shoot!
Tim told the story of how they met and his gorgeous, romantic proposal! “Katherine and I met at High School through the school bands. She was the cool chick up the back playing the bass, and I was the down the front cranking out the tunes on my saxophone. We actually first became “an item” when we both attended a school function which was pretty much like a ‘host your own murder night’, where the plot of our characters brought us together as we (our characters) had to get married. Now 11 and a bit years on, we are getting married for real!
In our eleven years we have had many adventures, the latest of which where we rode a motorcycle from Perth to Sydney, and then followed the south coast all the way back to Perth. If two people can be that close for that long, then we must have something right
My proposal was a very public one, as it was on St George’s Terrace in the city. Katherine’s office has a window which looks down on the terrace, and I thought I would use that as an opportunity to do something fun:) There I stood down on the terrace with ten great big signs that I had spent the last two days making, then called Katherine in her office. She was a little unimpressed that I had called as she was very busy, but I managed to convince her to look out of her window. A long story short, I had ten signs that warmed her up for the last one which said, “will you marry me?” By this time there were a lot of bystanders gathered witnessing what was going on, as well as many faces in the surrounding buildings windows. Katherine disappeared from her window and in what seemed like a lifetime came running out of the building straight across the road and jumped at me with a yes! This was met with many cheers from the bystanders.
We will be getting married within the Yanchep National Park just North of Perth, with the reception being held in a cave lit mainly by candles. There will also be some cool pics at a local abandoned theme park in the area. Katherine as a second job makes amazing cake creations for all occasions, and our wedding cake will be no different. She has got a secret or two up her sleeve for our creation!”
