Justin and Jessica had been swimming together at the Bristol Triathalon Club for about six months before they properly introduced themselves to each other.
The couple moved to Kuwait together, and after just under a year and a half, Justin surprised Jessica with a proposal on her 30th birthday! He’d collected video messages from friends and family back in the UK, and wrapped the custom made engagement ring up in a misleading box so Jessica had no idea what was coming.
After nine months of being engaged, the pair became husband and wife in a wedding with a Mexican theme, chosen because Jessica is half-Mexican.
They plan to follow their Mexican fiesta with a trip to South Africa later in the year to complete an Ironman challenge – no lounging on a beach for these active newlyweds!
