I’m excited to announce the winners of the Assassynation/Sassy n Frank/Elbie Van Eeden engagement shoot competition today. The winners, picked by the team who wanted to give away this fab prize, actually even come from Reading like me! Clearly it’s meant to be.

Huge congratulations to Kim & Phil who wrote this winning entry:

“We got engaged on 1st April 2011, yes you heard right, April Fool’s Day, and with this in mind we would like to continue our personalities and character traits in an engagement shoot.The theme I see is a food fight, with bright and colourful food such as cupcakes, hotdogs, condiments (almost American food style) between myself and my fiancé. We could almost be dressed in black so the bright colours would show up (small committed idea thrown in there!) I’d like some bright colour extensions in my hair (it’s brown at the moment) and bright make up to create a bold look.”

“The only thing I am struggling with is the place in which we could hold such a idea, like in my head I see some sort of supermarket aisle or food shop, or a banquet in grand house with a big a throne/ chair at each end.
We live in Reading and would be willing to travel to find a suitable venue to shoot at.”

“Our wedding isn’t until April 2013 in which we are hitting the bright lights of Vegas (again our personalities coming through) and then having a reception on Friday 10th May 2013 at Trunkwell House, Reading.”

Woohooo congrats guys I can’t wait to see the results of your shoot already…and if I see you in the Purple Turtle any time soon I’ll buy you both a drink to celebrate for sure!
