Francesca & Matthew's Real Wedding

Francesca and Matthew first met online. Love blossomed and the couple were dating for just over two years before keen cyclist Matthew asked Francesca to become his wife in a unique and surprising proposal…

Matthew & Francesca-Mr and Mrs

Matthew loves cycling, and after he and Francesca had been dating for just over two years, he cycled from Land’s End to John O’Groats in nine days for charity, covering 900 miles!

Francesca was waiting to meet him at the finish line, overlooking the sea. After Matthew crossed it, he got down on one knee. Francesca thought he was collapsing at first! He then said ‘will you marry me?’, and she was convinced he was going to say ‘will you carry me?’!

Matthew cleared up any confusion by presenting his bride to be with a beautiful Tiffany engagement ring which he’d carried across the country with him.

The couple were engaged for just under a year before becoming husband and wife in a traditional Jewish ceremony.
