Your Cheshire and Merseyside Wedding - November/December 2023 (Issue 72)

Gavin, who was based in the IT department, was repairing a printer at the time. The two got talking and a few weeks later he asked Jenny on a date. A year after that, they moved in together. In July 2021, when Covid restrictions eased the couple spent a weekend away together in London with a meal booked in The Shard. It was there at sunset that Gavin proposed.
