Ashley and Emily first met in primary school, and got together when they were both 15 at secondary school. A very boring science lesson paved the way for their relationship, and from that point on they were inseparable!
Emily describes Ashley as her best friend, saying: “He has an ability to make me laugh even in the hardest of times and he understands me thoroughly. He still impresses me every day with his knowledge of the world - he's a very wise person!”
After the couple had been together for six years, Ashley whisked Emily away on a surprise trip to Paris. She hates heights but he talked her into going up the Eiffel Tower to see Paris all lit up on a wintry December night. The tower twinkled as he got down on one knee and gave Emily a white gold engagement ring, featuring three diamonds. She was so happy and tearful she forgot to say yes!
The excited couple spent the next four years planning their dream wedding which took place at the Barn at Elsham Hall. They followed their big day with a fun honeymoon to Disney World Florida.
