Kevin and Lee are spreading happiness and love in Hull!
It’s time for a throwback this week, I’m taking you right back to the start of Nelly Naylor Photography for my #CoupleOfTheWeek. The super sweet Kevin and Lee were the first LGBT couple I ever had the pleasure of photographing after announcing that I was going to start offering same-sex couple shoots and weddings. You might recognise these famous faces, they’re on all of my flyers, canvases and promotional material - I’m sure you’ll have seen them somewhere. The shoot I was able to enjoy with them will always be special to me, it was the start of my now extensive portfolio of LGBT photography - I can remember it like it was yesterday! We strolled around Hull’s Old Town and I really loved capturing the sumptuous smiles of Kevin and Lee on camera, they’re adorable and great advocates of LGBT love and equality.
Kevin proposed to Lee during the most wonderful time of the year on Christmas Day 2016, just before Michael Bublé started frosting over for another year. This cute couple’s wedding is just around the corner on 20th July (also Kevin’s Birthday), and their relationship is so special, I really can’t wait to be part of their BIG day as they finally tie the knot. I feel honoured to have been asked to be part of the ceremony after Kevin and Lee loved their couples shoot with me. I can’t wait to attend what will be a wonderful wedding and a beautiful Birthday Bash for Kevin! The wedding will take place at Tickton Grange - a truly stunning venue and blissful retreat in East Yorkshire.
Aside from the beautiful venue, Kevin and Lee’s day is going to be packed full of fun, and I’m sure it will bring out mischief and laughter in all of those attending. There’s going to be a huge bouncy castle; rainbow colour bombs themed to the Pride colours and a photo booth too! I’m sure we’ll all be reaching for the stars and bouncing high after the ceremony.
Kevin and Lee are proud to be from Hull, the city of culture and they fully embrace everything the city has to offer. They’re family guys and are wonderful Uncles to their niece and nephew, and they also love spending time with their graceful Goddaughter. In their free time, they love going on date nights and making the most of their time with each other. It’s fair to say Kevin and Lee love their holidays too!
I hope you’ve enjoyed reading all about the lovely Kevin and Lee before we know it their wedding will be here. Many couples who I have consultations with around Hull often recognise Kevin and Lee on my canvases in the studio, and when visiting my exhibitions, they’re a central part of the community in Hull, and I’m so proud of everything they’re doing to promote LGBT love and equality. I recently had another couples shoot with them in the lead up to their wedding to capture some photos as bright and colourful as their personalities.
Kevin is a Hull Kingston Rovers fan which Lee teases him mercilessly about.
They love spending time together in the sun, dreaming of their next holidays and often visit local beer gardens.
They especially enjoy Pizza and pastries are considered to be one of the main food groups to Kevin.
They love binge watching boxsets when the weather is bad!
