Connar’s older sister Kate lives in Germany with her husband and two children, and in 2013 Connar and Natalie headed over there to see the New Year in with them.
On December 30th the couple went along with Kate’s family to visit the German markets. As Natalie loves all things Christmassy, she was in her element.
Kate’s children, Rory and Eva, talked her into going on the Ferris wheel with them and Connar, and it was magical. When they reached the top they could see out over the markets and all the lights were twinkling away. Natalie turned to look at Connar and he was holding out an engagement ring, and he asked her to marry him.
Eva and Rory started screaming with excitement when Natalie said yes, and they could hear Connar’s sister and brother-in-law whistling and cheering below.
Once they returned home the wedding planning began – the couple chose to have a traditional church wedding followed by a reception at Gailes Hotel.
