Meg and Todd’s Winter Engagement Shoot

by | Bride, Engagements


Meg & Todd

It must be clear by now that golden light fills my soul – there’s something about the shadows it casts, the way it adds a special glow to a very much head over heels in love couple. I think it’s especially delicious in the cooler months where the golden sunburnt grasses are accompanied by thick wooly jumpers and warm boots like today’s engagement shoot of Meg & Todd from Jennifer Oliphant.

Meg and Todd met in the most unlikely of places, a place where many of us dread but Todd ended up loving (or maybe just the nurse). Meg explains “I first met Todd when I was working, I was his dental nurse, and the moment I saw Todd in the dental chair I thought oh my he’s someone very special! At the time, I told Todd’s sister-in-law (who I worked with) that I thought he was very handsome!”


“I know its cliché but for me it was pretty much love at first sight, I thought to myself, I will marry him one day, later I found out Todd went home and told his mum about me.”


“We would run into each other from time to time, but were both in other relationships.

A few years later, due to much persistence from Todd’s older brother and wife, Todd and I got together, and the rest is history! (so to speak).

We moved in, and then about 6 months later we bought our first house together!”

We had planned a trip to Bali in September 2010 and I was expecting him to pop the question while we were in Bali, but to my surprise Todd proposed about 3 weeks before we went!

It was completely unexpected! And I’m glad it was.

When Todd and I first started dating we would often take my (now our) 2 dogs to the park so they could have a run around and a swim, and that’s where he proposed to me!

We held our engagement party at the same park, but unfortunately after the January floods, the park is now in ruins.”

“Todd had my engagement ring made, and used his great aunt’s diamond as the main piece, its utterly gorgeous!”

“We are getting married in November at Flaxton Gardens, honeymooning on Hamilton island and maybe a baby or two some where down the track!”
