The month of August is Romance Awareness month and the common thing I see with love photoshoots, pre-wedding photoshoots, engagement photoshoots and weddings is how to be romantic. There is always something that shows the love and so here are the tips I’ve spotted along the way.
Send a love note
If it is a note on the morning of your wedding, or a letter to be opened while you are away, or even a post-it on the fridge, the fact that someone has taken the time to write something to you, can make you smile. Need some inspiration, then take a look at some of the most famous love letters in history.
Celebrate all the important milestones
It could be a year since you first met, or 25 years of marriage, but making an effort to remember these special moments in life reminds you why you love each. You might recognise one of the quotes below from this often used church wedding reading.
Make each other laugh
There is nothing more romantic than a good old laugh together as the soul mates you are. Want to know when the phrase soul mate became popular?
Go back to special places
Locations can bring back all the happy memories and feelings as you reminisce. So if it is a coffee shop, or a place you used to walk to, then don’t forget to pop by if you haven’t been there for a while.
Surprise each other
This is of course if you like surprises, but if it shows what effort the other person went to, to show you that you are special, then it can mean a lot.
Spend quality time together
Sounds easy, but taking time away with absolutely no distractions and just chatting, or simply being together can give you space to reconnect.
Tell them how much they mean to you
To actually say out loud to the person you love, what they mean to you, in a way that is a little more than leaving for work and shouting ‘love you’ as you leave the door, can be emotional for all the right reasons. If you are a groom looking to make your bride happy with your Groom’s Speech, take a look at this great advice.
