Leena and Neil met in 2012 at a music festival in Derbyshire. “It was the last night and I decided to enjoy a few drinks with some friends,” says Leena. “In one of the tents, we saw three handsome guys and started talking to them. I was attracted to Neil’s looks and the fact he paid attention when we had a chat together. He loved my red lips and Scandinavian looks.”
Four years later, Neil proposed during a getaway to Southwold Beach in Norfolk. “We were enjoying a trip with our eldest daughter, and I was eight months pregnant with our second,” shares the bride. “I was watching the waves and as I turned around our daughter, Lumi, was holding a box with a beautiful ring, and Neil was down on one knee. We had been talking about getting married for a few years, but I was still incredibly surprised.”
