Country girl Abbi met Londoner Michael on their first day at university, where they were both studying nursing.
The started out as good friends, but their feelings towards each other soon changed and they realised they were falling in love. After 18 months together the blissfully happy couple had just got a new addition to their family – a puppy called Max. Michael trained Max to climb the stairs and go to Abbi, and once he’d mastered this he tied a proposal note to Max’s collar and sent him scampering off to Abbi.
They chose the ring as a couple as it was important to them that they planned every detail of their wedding together. Michael and Abbi’s engagement lasted for four years, to give them time to finish university and plan their perfect day.
