Caroline and Andrew’s love story began when they met through an online dating website – as soon as they started talking, the spark was undeniable and they knew that this was something special.
It hadn’t been a smooth ride leading up to the meeting though, as Andrew had been married before and Caroline had come close but never made it down the aisle.
So they both looked to online dating to see if true love would finally come along – and it certainly did as fate brought them both together!
Within six months of dating they couldn’t wait any longer to move in with each other and then 18th months later Andrew decided to pop the question.
Caroline had her heart set on a ring from Brighton, after living there 20 years ago and seeing the choice of rings on offer in the city’s famous Lanes. So when Andrew suggested a trip to Brighton one day – Caroline knew the big moment was coming!
They headed straight for The Lanes to find Caroline’s dream engagement ring – a stunning 18 carat white gold solitaire. Andrew then took her to the beach for an evening stroll where he got down on one knee to make the proposal official – and of course she said yes!
Shortly after getting engaged however, the couple were rocked with the worst news as Caroline sadly received a cancer diagnosis – meaning that the wedding almost didn’t take place.
Fortune was on their side however, as the early diagnosis and treatment meant that Caroline made a full recovery!
After receiving the happy news the wedding then became a double celebration for the couple - two soulmates joining together to become husband and wife as well as a celebration for Caroline beating cancer.
Andrew was Caroline’s rock throughout her illness and this made her feel even more certain that he was ‘the one’.
