A beautiful destination wedding proposal from St Paul’s Bay in Lindos, Greece.
Last week I was lucky enough to be in Lindos, on the beautiful Greek Island of Rhodes preparing to photograph the British/American Wedding celebrations of Keith and Beth, (coming soon to the blog) when I got a Facebook message from a good friend of mine from back home. The message from Keith Halliwell read “Hi Wes, are you in Lindos, if so how long for? It’s Jayne’s 30th birthday on Thursday and I’ve just surprised her with a romantic trip to Rhodes. We are on the way to the airport now and I’m wondering if you are available on Thursday evening to do me a favour! I’m planning something special for Jayne which will take place on St Paul’s Bay in Lindos and I would love it if you could be there”.
I’ve known Keith and Jayne for about 10 years, which I’m guessing is around about the length of time since they first got together. We share a number of close friends and I even provided them with a pregnancy portrait session before their Son Aaron was born. So I edged my bets and guessed that Keith was planning a romantic wedding proposal.
A plan was hatched via Facebook messenger, with Keith telling Jayne that he thought it would be a fantastic birthday treat to take advantage of the coincidence that their friend and photographer, was not only in the same country, but the same town, so he had arranged for a birthday family portrait session to take place with me on St Paul’s Bay in Lindos. The rest of this beautiful story can be seen in the below slideshow…
*Keith and Jayne, congratulations! What a beautiful coincidence hey. It was an honour to be able to capture these beautiful memories for you both.
Best wishes, Wes x
