About the Couple
Emma and Tim were introduced at a mutual friends housewarming party and spent the entire night chatting away in the kitchen, completely ignoring their other friends. Emma felt a spark and decided to leave her number with a friend to pass on…but disappointingly she didn’t end up hearing from Tim for several months. The friend she’d left her number with had forgotten to pass it on and ended up going on holiday…but eventually found it and gave the number to Tim, who got straight in touch with Emma.
Emma was late for their first date, their second date was interrupted by a work emergency and the third date was spent babysitting children who ended up being horribly sick throughout the night – needless to say, everyone was convinced that it must be true love!
The couple shared a wonderful, 9-year relationship before deciding to book a luxury mini-break to Dubrovnik, Croatia. Before their trip, Tim paid a secret visit to Emma’s father and carried the engagement ring with him, nervously, through airport security. On the day of their engagement the couple spent the morning Kayaking and then went for a meal during the evening, looking over Dubrovnik’s beautiful harbour. After dinner, the couple went for cocktails and then, as they were strolling back to their hotel along the cobbled streets, Tim suddenly got down on one knee and asked Emma to marry him. Emma accepted Tim’s marriage proposal with delight and the couple went back to their hotel with a bottle of champagne to toasted their engagement on the terrace until the early hours of the morning.
The couple completed on a property together just a couple of months later and spent the following 14 months planning their winter nuptials.
