This gorgeous engagement shoot comes from the beautiful Highgate, in London. Rob and Leonie tied the knot in October 2012 and kindly shared some of their amazing engagement photos with us.


How did you meet your husband?

“I met Rob at university – he had joined my friend’s band,” says Leonie. “He says I actually met him four times before I remembered who he was, but I don’t agree with that!” she smiles.

How did he propose?

“Rob came to see me on Boxing Day 2011 at my sister’s house in Poole,” remembers Leonie. “Everyone else had gone out for a Boxing Day stroll and we swapped presents – mine was a beautiful ring! I’m glad I gave him his gifts first, as a pair of trainers might have felt like a bit of a let down after that!” she laughs.

Were you surprised?

“Yes, really surprised!” says Leonie, “but looking back on it, it seems like everyone but me knew it was going to happen.”

Would you recommend an engagement shoot to others?

“I would definitely recommend it,” says Leonie. “It helps you to feel more relaxed around the camera, so then it doesn’t feel like such a big thing on your wedding day. We both felt a bit awkward to begin with, but didn’t really notice it at all during the wedding, thanks to our amazing photographer!”

Many thanks to Betti Confetti Photography for these gorgeous photos.
