We got a call on a cool, autumnal Friday night from a well-spoken gentleman with a pleasant German accent. Stefano explained that he and his partner Maxi were taking a week-long vacation in the UK and were staying at the Bovey Castle, a 10 minute drive from our base in Moretonhampstead.

Stefano had decided that the Bovey Castle was the perfect setting for a marriage proposal and asked us to capture the moment for posterity! We agreed to an impromptu engagement shoot the next day, with Stefano popping the question in the morning before our arrival. Happily, Maxi said yes and we spent a couple of hours wandering in the grounds of the Bovey Castle with them!

There was hardly anyone else staying at the hotel and it was a glorious, crisp day with golden sunlight and gorgeous autumnal foliage colours wherever we went.

The happy couple live outside Munich, but both studied at university in the UK. Stefano has what sounds like every young boy’s dream job, designing traditional wooden toys for a German toy manufacturer! This young, intelligent and charming couple were a delight to work with and we wish them every happiness in the future!
