I was chatting with Rudding Park a couple of weeks ago when they told me they were holding a Valentines Ball.
My mind starting whirring with ideas and I asked “Do you have a photographer in case any one goes down on one knee?”…within a few seconds I’d somehow managed to volunteer to be offical photographer for Rudding Park!
So on Saturday evening I arrived in Harrogate hoping that someone would pop the question and knowing that even if they didn’t I’d still have some fun taking photos.
A few moments after midnight, in the early hours of February 14th, Robert Bell surprised his Valentine Tracy Kipling by proposing on one knee.
She said Yes!
Full of happiness they immediately hit the dance floor to celebrate the moment.
I am sure Robert must have been on edge all night knowing what he was about to ask. I could tell they were so in love before he asked and they were even more so after.
It was a privilege to capture the memory for them and I wish them all the best in the future!
They had a fab swing band on the night called Chris Hiltons Little Big Band (formerly Simply Swing).
If you are looking for a swing band for a wedding or event they were very good. Check them out here.
As well as Robert and Tracy there was lots more love at The Valentines Ball…
Plus lots of fun and dancing…
There was even a photo of me taken sporting my winter beard!
I had to leave before it finished as the next day I was at a wedding fair but when I left the dancing was still going strong!
