‘To love is to take the greatest risk of all. It is to give one’s future and one’s happiness into another’s hands.’ Helen Thomson, 1943
Nicola and Kieron had a truly magical wedding day in August 2010 surrounded by 80 of their closest family and friends. Their wedding had a fun and bright zebra print theme running through out the day to highlight Nicola’s South African childhood memories.
Kieron started working at the advertising agency Lowe Worldwide in 2007. Nicola walked into his office on his 2nd day, introduced herself and then quickly handed him an unexpected To-Do list. A year later Nicola left Lowe, and after a chance meeting in the agency’s local pub, ‘The Cod’, they soon realised that they had a lot more in common than just work. They arranged to meet in Cannes, France for an advertising festival, where Kieron promised to have a bottle of champagne waiting. They met, they kissed, and rest as they say, is history…..
Kieron proposed and the couple visited a diamond dealer in South Africa to have a ring made especially for Nicola. The ring would include 7 diamonds to represent them being together for 7 months before getting engaged. Nicola managed to stay in South Africa whilst the ring was being designed, and she even carried it back to the UK with out taking a peek! Kieron collected Nicola from the airport, they stopped off at Primrose Hill, walked to the top of the hill where Kieron got down on one knee, asked Nicola to marry him (again), but this time putting a ring on her finger.
