After being together for just eight months, Meriel and Jamie’s lives were turned upside down when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. It made the couple realise what was truly important in life, and during a mini-break to St. Ives four months later, in between chemotherapy courses, Jamie asked Meriel to be his wife.
Jamie chose the ring based on designs Meriel had pointed out – although she hadn’t expected a proposal so soon! The couple waited two years before getting married; Meriel’s health was a priority.
The couple became husband and wife at a vintage inspired wedding surrounded by their closest friends and family.
