Our small Cornwall wedding. May 2017
I've been debating whether to do one of these or not but thought it would be nice to look back on. So here goes:
How we met
I was 20 and h2b was 21. I'd just come out of a long term relationship and wasn't interested in finding love any time soon. I made friends with a guy at the pub and was hanging out with him a lot. One weekend his friend Adam from college came down and we all spent the weekend together hanging out. The guy I'd met at the pub was only a friend but all of a sudden got it in to his head that me and his friend (h2b) were messing about with each other. Que awkward argument and me leaving. But first, Adam asked for my number. We spent the next week or so texting and he kept pestering me for a date. I refused the date but agreed to a cinema trip as it was less date like lol baby ways, we went and saw UP and he was the perfect gentleman and didn't try anything on. i should probably add we lived over 1 hour apart so would meet halfway. Anyways, he invited me to a tractor rally one weekend (basically camping in a field, driving tractors and lots of alcohol) after a lot of alcohol we had our first kiss. I then spent the duration of the following day nursing a hangover in the sun. The rest is history. After 18 months I moved from Essex to Hertfordshire and we rented a flat together.
it was my 23rd birthday. Adam had taken me out for dinner and we were sat in the restaurant. All of a sudden he reached across the table, stared lovingly in my eyes and told me how much he loves me and wants to spend the rest of his life with me. He then pulled his hand out from under the table and was clutching on to..... His phone! He thought it was hilarious, I ran off in tears. I didn't speak to him for 3 days 😂 Fast forward 3 months. We are at home, he cooks me an amazing meal and afterwards, got down on one knee, in my lounge, and asked me to marry him. I laughed as he used my full name and never normally does. We knew it would be a long engagement as we were wanting to buy our own home first. May 2015 we finally moved in to our very own house 🎉
