Luke and Charlotte were at school together, although Charlotte only really became aware of Luke when they found themselves on holiday at the same place.
When they returned to school, Charlotte sent Luke an ‘anonymous’ Valentine’s Day card and followed it up by asking him out via text. He replied saying he didn’t know, and asked her to text again at 9pm on the 4th April. She did, and he agreed to go out with her.
That was in 2003, and five years later on the 4th April, Luke proposed to Charlotte on the beach. He got the ring exactly right – Charlotte had pointed out a design she loved in the Argos catalogue and he remembered.
They were engaged for six years, to allow their wedding day to fall on the 4th April 2014!
