Andrew and Heather met online via MySpace back in August 2007 after having a common interest that they both shared. Formula 1 played a big part in their conversations as well as the fact that they had both attended the same university several years before. Heather was living in London where as Andrew was based in Kent so a lot of travelling back and forth happened before the couple decided to move in together in June 2008. On Valentines Day the following year Andrew whisked Heather off to a lovely hotel in Tunbridge Wells and whilst down on one knee asked her to be his wife.
The couple wanted to pay for their big day themselves and after some research into the average costs of a wedding they were able to work out a rough budget and a time frame in order to save up. They thought that between 15 and 18 months would be enough time to plan their perfect day…and it was.
