Amanda and Stuart had mixed in the same circle of friends for a long time, and drank in the same local pub. However, Amanda didn’t think Stuart liked her as he seemed quite shy and didn’t speak to her much.
One of their mutual friends decided to play matchmaker, and one night as he was leaving a party at Amanda’s friend’s house, Stuart stole a kiss as she closed the door. A few seconds later there was a knock at the door, and when Amanda opened it again Stuart was still standing there. He said ‘Give us another one of them, then’, and their love story began!
He proposed on Christmas day and the couple were engaged for five years before setting the date, and married two years after that.
