The newlyweds first set eyes on each other at a bar called Shakespearience in Stratford-upon-Avon, on a mutual friend’s birthday night out.
After eight years together, Linden whisked Ruth away on a romantic break to New York for Valentine’s Day…and didn’t propose. Instead, he waited until they got home – as soon as Ruth walked through the door to their house, she noticed it was filled with flowers and candles.
Linden knew she wouldn’t be expecting in then, so it was the perfect surprise and the best way to end an amazing trip.
The excited bride and groom planned their winter wonderland wedding in just 10 months.
