The happy couple met just days before Christmas whilst out in the West End. The attraction was instant, and romance soon followed. On November 19th, less than a year after meeting, Chris proposed to Andrea at the Westerwood Hotel.
The groom chose the ring himself and kept it a secret from Andrea by hiding it on top of the kitchen units at home, until he was ready to pop the question. The platinum engagement ring was perfect! Andrea and Chris began excitedly planning their late spring wedding, which would take place at the Rosslea Hall Hotel, with a classic royal blue and silver colour scheme. 78 of their closest friends and family members were invited, and the wedding countdown began!
