Melissa & Sean’s Secret Garden in Sydney Engagement

Melissa & Sean 

While we cling onto warmer days as Autumn begins, we thought we’d share something a little sunny and sweet for your Saturday! Melissa and Sean wanted their engagement shoot to allow for a variety of different shots, so the perfect choice was Wendy’s Secret Garden, found in Lavender Bay in Sydney. The couple were able to have photos in the stunning gardens, as well as on the water front of the bay. The two chose Mint Photography to capture their secret garden in Sydney engagement session.

Melissa remembers how she and Sean came to be. “We met through a mutual friend that introduced us. At the time I did not realise that she was trying to set us up, so I was just chatting away, before Sean made his move by giving me his business card and asking me to go out with him some time!”

“Sean took me out for a lovely seafood lunch, then took me down to the beach for a walk,” says Melissa. “After walking on the beach for a while, we then sat on a sand dune and watched the waves. As we sat there chatting, Sean pulled the ring out of his pocket and asked me to marry him! Probably the one story that Sean brings up the most that we laugh about is that when he proposed I was so excited that I said “Yes!”, and before Sean could pick up the ring to put it on my finger, I grabbed it and put it on myself!”

Melissa says that she loves that she and Sean make a great team and that they bring out the best in each other. “Sean is a calm, quiet personality, and I am quite a loud, highly strung personality. So he calms me down and helps me stay in a good head space, and I help bring Sean out of his shell. No problem is too big if we work together.”
