Laura and Carl’s love story began after they met in an Irish bar in 2009, both of them slightly worse for wear! Nevertheless they couldn’t deny their connection and their relationship blossomed.
After five years of being together, Laura was swept off her feet with an unexpected proposal. It all began in February 2014 when Laura unfortunately suffered from Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss.
The illness gave Laura’s confidence a huge knock and she was forced to take a six week sabbatical from work while she recovered.
The weekend before she was due to go back to work, Carl suggested that they go for dinner at the restaurant where they originally had their first date – so it would help settle her nerves before returning to work.
After a lovely meal, Carl took Laura on a scenic walk back to the car. Whilst walking along the river front, he suddenly enveloped Laura in a hug and told her how proud he was of her and how much he loved her.
Laura gave him a kiss and started to carry on walking. After realising that Carl wasn’t beside her, she turned around to see him down on one knee holding out a beautiful white gold princess cut ring!
She was totally speechless and tears of joy were pouring down her face – but in between the tears, she managed to say yes!
The happy couple wed in September 2015 and had the day of their dreams at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking. It was a day perfectly suited to their personalities: relaxed, vibrant and fun.
