Prue had been toying with the idea of proposing to Mat for a while, and after nearly blurting it out by accident, she resolved to make a plan to do it right. That meant a romantic glamping weekend filled with their favourite things – craft beer, wineries, cheese, and toasting marshmellows over a campfire – and after a Saturday of indulgence the pair headed to the beach for sunset. “We had some Cuban cigars and spiced rum brought home from a recent adventure,” Prue tells us. “Then I popped the question – it was an instant yes!”

To minimise distractions on their wedding day, Prue and Mat opted to have a relaxed couple shoot just a few days before, recruiting their favourite photographer for the job. “We’d fallen in love with Jess’s style from Brown Paper Parcel and thought it would be great to capture some shots before the wedding in a more relaxed environment,” Prue explains. “It allowed us more time to party with our guests rather than having to disappear after the ceremony.”

With Otto the Scottie in tow, the pair mucked about in the grounds of The Estate Trentham, where they’d be tying the knot just a couple of days later. Jess had the bright idea to bring along some bubble bath and had no trouble selling the tub idea to these lovers. “Jess captured some beautiful shots which wouldn’t have been possible on our wedding day,” Prue tells us. “I don’t know how our guests would have felt if we ducked off for a quick bath between the ceremony and the reception!”
