Caroline & Douglas's Real Wedding

After meeting online, Douglas and Caroline hit it off immediately. Within six months they were engaged, and after an 18 month engagement the bride and groom married at Gretna Green with lots of traditional Scottish touches.

Douglas & Caroline-The Happy Couple

Douglas and Caroline met online, but not on a dating website. They hit it off straight away and soon found themselves chatting on the phone without any awkwardness – as though they’d know each other for years.

Douglas works on oil rigs, and whilst he was away working the couple spoke every night. As soon as he was back in Scotland they decided to meet up and he drove to Manchester and they finally spent a week together in person. They had the most perfect time, and Caroline cried when the week was up!

After six months together, Douglas asked Caroline to marry him whilst she was curled up on the sofa in her pyjamas. He chose the ring himself and got it exactly right. The couple were engaged for a year and a half before saying ‘I do’.
