Claire and Samuel met while studying music at Cardiff University. “We bonded over our mutual love of musical theatre and folk music,” says Samuel. “I accompanied Claire to a lunchtime concert series, and we became good friends. We quickly fell for each other without even realising it.”
Samuel popped the question on New Year’s Eve in front of Claire’s family. “We looked at rings together earlier in December, but Claire didn’t know when the proposal would be,” shares the groom. “It was also a surprise for the rest of our friends and family.”
