Graham and Rebecca met online in 2005 and got talking. They started to talk on the phone for a couple of weeks before meeting up in person. The spark was instantly there and the pair fell in love. They dated for two years before getting engaged, and then bought a house together and moved in in 2008.
Graham had planned to propose to Rebecca during a romantic holiday to Barbados, but as they sat on the plane on the way there, he realised he’d left the ring at home!
The next month the couple had a weekend away in Blackpool so rather than propose in Barbados, Graham popped the question in Blackpool. They were walking back to their B&B and Graham got Rebecca to sit down on a bench before getting down on one knee and proposing.
They’d already discussed getting engaged and had bought the ring together, although Rebecca was so sure of his taste that she knew she’d have loved what he picked anyway. The couple were engaged for eight years and had their wedding booked for 2009 but sadly Graham’s dad passed away exactly one year before, so they decided to move the date. They had a cruise booked in October 2015 so they decided to transform it into a honeymoon and get married just before.
