Kamron and Ami first met in 2011 during a placement working for Xerox in Greater London. She says, "I was attracted to Kam's cool hair, his wit and intelligence. We just clicked as soon as we met and I think we've always known we'd found the one." In September 2019 at Dancing Ledge in Swanage, Dorset, Kamron asked Ami to marry him. She says, "I came back from a half-day at work and Kam had made us a fancy picnic to take down to the coast – I should have guessed something was up at that point! During the picnic, he asked me to look over the cliff's edge (slightly concerning) and took the ring out of his backpack and popped the question!"... read more

The love boat with Laura and Matthew

Laura and Matthew first met each other in sixth form 14 years ago, but it wasn't until 2016 that they started dating. From that moment, the couple embarked on a journey together where they discovered more about one another and created everlasting memories. Laura says: "Matt proposed when we were on holiday in Cyprus. He didn't know when he was going to do it but knew I had always loved my nana's engagement ring, so several months earlier he had gone to see my mum to ask her permission to give it to me. He wrapped the ring in a pair of shorts and put them in the beach bag that I carried around for days! On the last evening, we went for a walk after a meal to our favourite spot, sat on a rock and he popped the question on the 25th September, 2018, and just shy of a year later we got married!"... read more
