Lovebirds | How did you two meet?
We met at university and became very close friends over the next two years. We started
spending a lot more time together towards the end of second year as we were preparing
for exams, and both found ourselves enjoying being together and not wanting it to end
after the exams. Initially we didn’t know how serious it was going to be, but it wasn’t
long before we both knew we had found the person we wanted to be with forever.
He booked a weekend away and a hot air balloon ride for us, but told me it was for my

and then asked me to marry him. Easiest question ever. To add to the special day, he
had arranged for our family to meet us for breakfast after the balloon ride.

that some things will go wrong on the day but remember that you can’t control
everything and the most important part of the day is that you’re marrying the person you
