Ruth and Liam knew they were meant to be and professed their love in a romantic celebration at their local church

Ruth and Liam met in the modern way, online. “I was having a bit of a nose on the website, not expecting to meet anyone, especially not the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with,” says Ruth. “Our first chat was about whether Liam had a beard or not, as his photos showed him with and without one. We met up soon after and spent our first date walking around a park in the rain. I was attracted to him initially because of his beard, and he often wonders if we’d actually be together if he hadn’t had one! The more I got to know him, the more I realised he was someone special.”

Liam knew Ruth was the one and asked her to be his wife after only a few months together. “We met in December, got engaged in May and were married by September having known each other less than a year,” explains the bride. “We knew we were right for each other and decided there was no real reason to wait. I knew Liam’s proposal was coming as we’d picked out an incredible ring together at Crystalink Jewellery. He proposed in a meadow surrounded by blossom trees in our local park. It means we can visit the sport regularly and remember our engagement, wedding and marriage.”
