The Bride and Groom

Sam and Grant met in 2004 at a hotel called Tall Trees in Yarm, Cleveland. For their first date Grant took Sam out for dinner and a movie, but Godsend featuring Robert De Niro wasn’t Sam’s cup of tea, but the company, however, was great!

In 2008 Grant took Sam on a surprise trip to Paris, but little did she know that her boyfriend was about to propose! They enjoyed a romantic evening river cruise on the Seine and at the end of their meal the waiter came over carrying a plate which had been covered with a napkin.  Sam removed the napkin to reveal a ring box.

Grant got down on one knee, Sam said yes, and everyone on the river cruise cheered with excitement for the happy couple. Grant and Sam spent the next 4 years planning their lives together.  They purchased their first home and spent a time saving money for their incredible wedding celebration which was to be held within the grounds of Hardwick Hall Hotel in Sedgefield.
