The story of Ruth and Paul from Swipe Right to I Do!
This has to be the best chat up ever. Phil: ‘Would you like to come to the Bruce Springsteen gig with me?’ Joanne: ‘I’d love to but you’ll never get tickets!’ Phil: ‘Don’t worry: I know someone in the band…’ You’d never guess Phil was an Irishman would you? Sure, the craic was great at […]
Like so many couples these day, Lisa and Ray were ‘reversing into marriage’ and they arrived at Orocco Pier with their ready-made family, their children, Ethan and Courtney. Courtney’s verdict was crucial when it came to choosing the colour of the bridesmaids dresses, while Ethan made sure the countdown sign was always up to date. […]
