Craig and Jess tied the knot at the beautiful Craig y Nos Castle

Jess and Craig met on a night out. “We shared common interests and quickly became inseparable,” says Jess. “I felt comfortable with Craig straight away. Our relationship has always been based on laughter, and we encourage each other to be the best version of ourselves.”

Craig popped the question in 2019. “He proposed overlooking Machu Picchu in Peru,” shares the bride. “I had no idea that he was planning to ask me. We had just arrived at the top of the mountain, and as we posed for a picture, I turned around to see him down on one knee. It was the most overwhelming moment, and I couldn’t help but cry tears of joy. I was so impressed that he managed to carry an engagement ring in his luggage for 10 days, through three airports and multiple cities and hotels, and I had absolutely no idea. He created the ring box by hand, with the letters J and C engraved on the top. I had previously mentioned that I wanted our engagement to be a complete surprise rather than on a predictable date, and Craig definitely took that on board. It was truly magical.”
