Alrighty… If you don’t know Dickie and Morgon… you’ll perhaps be a little confused by the title. Dickie is in fact Amanda’s last name, and EVERYONE calls her Dickie. To the point that she won’t become ‘Amanda Walker’ when she marries Morgon. She’ll probably become ‘Dickie Walker’. I tried to start calling her Dickie, but Amanda slipped out a few times, to the point bouncy loveable Morgon simply states ‘Amanda just sounds weird’ . Haha Can you tell I love these two already?
I love hearing proposal stories… I never tire of it! … And when I heard Dickie and Morgon’s for the first time. I did a lot of ‘Awww-ing’ like a little girl.
Not all men will go to such romantic extremes … but then… you haven’t met the Bunnings Guy have you?
One fine morning, Morgon goes to work. ..Or does he?! … A text is sent to Dickie saying he has organised the day off for her. With $20 conveniently placed in her purse for transport, she is lead on a wild goose chase, on a boat, alllll the way to Waiheke Island where a car, with a programmed GPS was waiting for her.
You’d be thinking Dickie might be a little bit suspicious by now? Well of course… but then again, they also do “wee” surprises for each other all the time. So the suspicious mind set left her.
She was led to the top of a hill with a view overlooking Auckland. She almost got a little sidetracked taking photos of the view as she walked… when her Mr Bunnings Guy walks out from behind a bush in a suit and a guitar ready to pop the question, every girl wants to hear!
I’m pretty sure Dickie said Yes!!! That’s just a little hard to say no to! And just spending an hour with them during their engagement shoot proved to me they have soooooooo many more awesome adventures ahead of them. It’s just who they are! :)
They are an abundance of fun. They ran, jumped, frolicked, chased chickens, arm wrestled. And just flat out showed me the true meaning behind ‘Marrying your best friend!’. We best stock up on V for their wedding day! Because it’s going to be SO FULL of beautiful energy, all.day.long!!! I simply can’t wait!
Morgon and Amanda are living in Auckland and just bought their first home! (So much to celebrate at the moment). But they are coming back to the South Island to get married and we had their E shoot out at Amanda’s Grandpa’s Farm in the Waipara Valley.
Thanks so much for a beautiful fun filled evening guys! … Can’t wait to show you a few more! And even though I was already excited for your wedding… it’s heightened, that much more!!! See you next Feb! :)
