Holly and Iain knew each other for a few years before they got together as he was a friend of her brother-in-law’s. Holly, her sister, her sister’s husband and Iain would often go out together, but one night Holly persuaded them not to come so it was just her and Iain, and after that night they became a couple.
In December 2013 Iain took Holly to Bruges to see in the New Year before he was deployed to Afghanistan. After dinner they went on a moonlit walk until they came across a bridge over a river. Iain got down on one knee and put a princess cut diamond ring on Holly’s finger.
They saw in the New Year as an engaged couple, enjoying lots of celebratory champagne!
