Wildlife Sanctuary Engagement Session- Holly and Ben

We met at Awbridge Wildlife Sanctuary one evening in May for their Wildlife Sanctuary engagement session. These two get married in the Autumn in a treehouse in the New Forest! They love the outdoors and nature and we wanted to choose a location to reflect that.

Holly and Ben first met online in 2016 after carefully considering each others tinder profiles before swiping right!

Holly says: “I think it’s almost fate that I added this to my profile. ‘when people ask how we met, I’m saying Tinder. This is 2016 not 1996 and we don’t need to pretend we bumped into each other in a coffee shop!’. And I took it off after a few hours thinking it sounded too negative. Then when me and Ben were together, we were discussing why we had swiped each other right. He mentioned that quote and that he liked it and it was a big factor! So maybe if I’d taken it off sooner or never done it, we wouldn’t be here right now!”

Fast forward a few years and Ben proposed with his grandma’s old engagement ring! Holly’s mum is a jeweller and had a hand in making the ring ready for Holly before Ben proposed- under the stars whilst camping in Devon!

Holly has two adorable children who love Ben to pieces. It was amazing to hear that her and Ben are currently expecting a baby boy together too! I can’t wait to see these two at their wedding when their family will be a family of 5!
