Ailsa & Neal
Every now and then the world will put you in the right place at the right time and allow amazing people into your life. This was the case with Ailsa & Neal. These guys mean the world to me as they were the first ever booking I took when I started flying solo.
The two hit it off way back in the winter of 2013 after seeing a film with a group of close friends. Fast forward to 2016 and Neal had already received the blessings of Ailsa's father to marry her.
Ailsa's favourite film is "You've Got Mail", Neal kept this in mind when the two were set to travel to NYC later that year. The two of them left the subway in the Upper West Side and headed to Riverside Park where the famous scene between Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan plays out. Completely oblivious to Neal's plan, Ailsa started to talk about her favourite movie as she recognised the scenery... I know, you can't make this up!
When they finally reach the spot where the two movie characters kiss, Neal presented Ailsa with a ring. The same ring his late father bought his mother some forty years ago.
The two of them are happily engaged and due to wed in May next year.
They both work in theatre, Ailsa a stage manager and Neal an actor. Both of their schedules have been crazy busy since their engagement. Though a few weeks ago, they both had time to enjoy with one another and agreed to travel to Mwnt in Ceredigion, along with myself, for their prewedding shoot.
