Melissa and Matthew first met on Tinder in March 2014. “We matched when I was home from University, but I went back shortly after,” says Melissa. “After months of talking, Matt came to visit me for our first official date, and we’ve been inseparable ever since!”
Matthew proposed on 5th January, 2019 at Southerndown Beach. “It was the day before my 24th birthday, and we’d gone for a walk on the beach,” shares the bride. “I never wanted a big engagement and the idea of him getting down on one knee for everyone to see filled me with dread. We walked to the top of the cliff, overlooking the beach, close to where we had sat on one of our first dates, and he asked if I wanted to be his wife. I was so shocked that I’m not sure I even said yes! That morning he had gone to collect a delivery and was gone for so long! Later I learned that he was ringing my parents to ask my dad’s permission, and he called his parents to let them know. He proposed with a temporary ring, and we went shopping a few days later to find the perfect one.”
