Vipul and Helen first encountered each other at a club event, through a mutual friend. Helen was with someone else at the time, so although they chatted through Facebook, nothing came of it.
Around a year later, Helen had changed her Facebook relationship status to ‘single’, so Vipul seized the opportunity and asked her to go for a drink. She was adamant it was not a date, but just a friendly drink…however the pair got on so well it soon progressed to a date!
After three years together, Vipul planned to propose to Helen on a hot air balloon ride, but scrapped that plan after she guessed what would happen. He then took her to Vertigo24 on Liverpool Street, a champagne bar, and proposed with a custom made engagement ring he’d designed himself.
The bride and groom were engaged for just a year before tying the knot.
