Michelle and Christopher’s love story began in 2006 when they locked eyes at their local bar. “We met briefly, and as luck would have it we bumped into each other again a few hours later at a friend’s house party,” says Michelle. “I was extremely attracted to Chris and his gorgeous smile.”
Christopher popped the question on Christmas morning in 2012. “He handed me a Thomas Sabo ring charm for my bracelet and pretended to propose to me by saying ‘would you do me the honour of making me a cup of tea?” shares the bride, “I burst into tears at the thought of him making a joke about a such a serious subject, and he quickly pulled out a box with a beautiful diamond and ruby engagement ring in. I was in complete shock and felt so elated.”
