Chris was stying geography, and Rhian was focusing on English literature when they first met. “We were living in different flats in our first year at Aberystwyth University,” says Rhian. “One night, during Fresher’s week, a group of us took a spontaneous midnight stroll near Constitution Hill. We met at the top and started talking about our love of standup comedy. We got to know each more over the years and found we had lots of common and always made each other laugh.”
To remember the night they first met, Chris proposed on Constitution Hill in Aberystwyth. “The plan had been to pop the question as the sunset, but there was a storm blowing, so it was a bit wet and windy,” explains the bride. “Chris nearly got blown over as he tried to get down on one knee! It was a surprise, but I did get a little suspicious when he was so adamant that we had to find the exact spot that we met.”
