How did you meet and fall in love?
Sam and I met up our local nightclub, Bar Celona, Kingswood on a Saturday night. He wowed me with his great dance moves!
Tell us about the proposal
Sam proposed to me on 5th November. He said that we hadn’t spent much time together lately, as we had been working so much and looking after Archie, our son, so he said let’s get dressed up and I’m going to take you out somewhere really nice for a lovely meal. He took us to Turtle Bay for cocktails and then surprised me by taking me to my favourite restaurant San Carlos.
We were seated on a beautiful table. I noticed the waiters kept coming over winking and smiling at us and Sam was acting a little shifty. Even though I was really full up he insisted I had a pudding! The waiter brought over the profiteroles and said something to me. I couldn’t quite hear wait he had said so I looked over at Sam and he was on one knee.
I looked at Sam and was just gobsmacked as he he said “Will you marry me?” Of course my answer was yes. The whole restaurant burst into applause for us. Sam later told me he had gone down there early in the day to arrange with the staff what table he wanted and how he wanted to do the proposal.
Where and when are you tying the knot?
We’re getting married on Thursday 3rd December at the very beautiful Old Down Manor, Tockington Bristol.
Because we’re getting married in December we’re having a Christmas themed wedding, with Bridesmaids in red and delicious floral arrangements comprising of red and white flowers.
I knew it was love when…
I knew it was love from the moment I first kissed Louisa.
I knew it was love when Sam looked after me so well, when our son was born. He showed me he could be a great father and husband.
Aww how sweet!! Thanks so much for sharing your love shoot with us.
