After we graduated a couple of months later, we had a long-distance relationship, traveling around the M25 every weekend to determine each other before we went to live in London together 5 years later. It was another four years later when Glen proposed around the weekend of my 30th birthday, down by Tower Bridge around the Thames. We celebrated the following night with everyone inside my 30th birthday celebration, and also the following week in Copenhagen."

"We had No Letting Go by Wayne Wonder. When I was growing up, this song was huge for all of us and our friends. Glen and I were probably the most nervous relating to this part, so didn't want anything too soppy or slow. We desired to get the party started!"
"I don't think we'd have changed anything. It happens in a flash and we enjoyed every second. It was worth it."
