Danny and Noreen first met in a pub on Hayling Island in Hampshire. Danny used to drink there with his sister and Noreen was the manager at the time. They always used to catch up when he came in, and after six months they finally arranged a date!
The couple had been together for two years when Danny casually asked Noreen to marry him as they relaxed on the sofa together one afternoon after work. He’d already picked out the perfect engagement ring to give to his bride.
An engagement of 11 years followed, and the couple planned to elope secretly to Canada to tie the knot. They decided to tell their families the Christmas before they went, and plan to celebrate their wedding with them in the summer.
