Allan spotted Debbie walking along one evening as he was driving home. She went into a pub, and on a whim he pulled into the car park and followed her in, in the hope of getting to know her.
They got talking and three and a half years later were still together and completely loved up. Allan asked Debbie to become his wife by getting down on one knee and proposing at Michael Caine’s Abode restaurant.
Debbie had outlined the style of ring she liked, so Allan had the perfect one made, complete with a message engraved on the inside.
The next year and two months were spent planning their dream beach wedding, and the following celebration at home.
