Caitlen and Rob celebrated their fondness for dinosaurs at the grand National Museum Cardiff

Caitlen and Rob met through work. “Rob was always kind, friendly and helpful to everyone,” says Caitlen. “We regularly ate lunch together and ended up bonding over our love of comedy. Our first date was to see a Sara Pascoe show, and we’ve enjoyed visited shows together ever since.”

Rob popped the question during a holiday to Arizona. “We visited a ghost town called Nothing in the middle of the desert,” shares the bride. “He was adamant that we had to stop at Nothing to see a meteor shower. When we got there, we got out of the car to look at the sky, and Rob got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He proposed next to a cactus, which is why these plants featured so heavily on our wedding day. It was very exciting, and we then spent the rest of the trip exploring Nevada as a newly engaged couple.”
