Louise and Charlie were friends at first, but when Charlie went away to Afghanistan, they both realised what they had was more than friendship. When he returned they were spending all their time together. Louise knew it was truly serious when her army man accompanied her to see Sex and the City 2 at the cinema!
They moved in together and after two years of happiness together, Charlie surprised Louise with a romantic proposal at her favourite restaurant in Didsbury, just before he was posted to Cyprus with the army. He chose the ring without Louise’s input, narrowing it down to two possibilities, and asking Louise’s best friend to help him with the final decision.
Louise was thrilled by his surprise proposal, and after she got over the shock, she gladly accepted! The couple began planning their wedding to take place in nine and a half months’ time.
