After their initial meeting in Tenerife, Rob and Rachel went their very separate ways, back to Northampton and Bournemouth respectively. With the pair living so far apart, it wasn’t clear whether the relationship would last, but Rob soon visited Bournemouth and from then on they were inseparable.
A couple of months later, Rachel decided to make the life transforming decision to move to Northampton to be with Rob all the time. The crazy in love couple added to the whirlwind by getting engaged in the November, less than six months after their first meeting.
Rob surprised Rachel with a romantic proposal in the Lake District, presenting her with an engagement ring he’d picked out by himself. After the proposal, he explained the special reasons behind the choice of ring. Rachel will never forget the magical moment when Rob asked her to marry him – even if he didn’t go down on one knee, for fear of ruining his favourite chinos!
