Oliver and Sasha have one of those real ‘true love’ kind of stories. The pair began their relationship in 2009, just before Oliver made a huge move over to Kuwait to teach in a British school. Their love for each other strongly survived a two year long distance relationship until Sasha finally finished her degree and joined Oliver in Kuwait. Five years after they first began their relationship, the pair set off for a romantic getaway in Venice where Oliver had something extra special prepared for Sasha.
On their second day in the gorgeous Italian city, in an idyllic and romantic spot, Oliver got down on one knee and asked Sasha to be his wife with a 1 carat, princess cut engagement ring. They spent the next 19 months planning what was always going to be the wedding of their dreams with regular trips to and from the UK to coordinate the day.
