The Proposal Story
Katie and Alex were friends for 15 years before anything remotely romantic happened. This love story dates back to 1998 when the couple met at Liverpool University.
They were both studying to be teachers and lived just doors apart from each other in student digs. Katie moved to Dubai in 2011 and by chance, Alex happened to move to Dubai shortly after! It was natural for Katie and Alex, as friends, to meet up for movie nights, dinners and dancing over the course of 2 years and their friendship developed in to something much more serious.
A year and a half in to their relationship, Alex took Katie for a surprise weekend to York. As tourists, the couple went up to the top of York Minster and when no one was around, Alex dropped down on to one knee and proposed! Excited and ready to take their relationship to the next level, the couple announced their engagement and spent the next 12 months preparing for the big day.
