She had three objections as to why they shouldn't be a couple.

He had an answer for every one.

When she finally ran out of reasons, Franziska agreed to go out with Martin.  The years went by, good times were had and the bad times only brought them closer.

Martin, a member of an amateur dramatic society, chose one of the most dramatic and romantic ways to propose to Franziska.  

On the opening night of Dance of the Vampires, he proposed to his lovely girlfriend on stage!

The couple visited Skye for the first time last year and we met up with them in their full wedding regalia for a very special photoshoot.

When Franziska described their wedding outfits to us by email, we immediately couldn't wait to photograph them!  Martin wore a deep burgundy smoking jacket, paired with a matching bow tie.

Franziska is also the very first bride we've had in a jumpsuit - and she looked fabulous!  The practicality of the trousers made the walk to the Fairy Pools much easier for her - especially navigating the stepping stones - but retained the classic elegance of a wedding dress.

The more we spoke to Martin and Franziska, the more we realised they were our ideal clients.  We asked them, with absolutely no obligation at all, if they would mind if we were filmed while we worked with them.  Our lovely couple said they wouldn't mind at all - so that's exactly what happened!  The Euphoria documentary will be available soon and will give future clients an idea of what it's like to work with us to ensure we're a good fit for each other beforehand.

We went to a lesser-visited part of the Fairy Pools where we had total peace and quiet to shoot.  It's a little harder to get to, but it does mean you're far less likely to be in people's way as you shoot.

Martin and Franziska are both dancers - which made them an absolute pleasure to work with as they're just that bit more elegant than the rest of us!

We didn't want to stop shooting, and kept going even until we began to lose the light!

Martin and Franziska, thank you for a magical experience!  We wish you an amazing future together.
