31 & 35
On the night before my 30th birthday in a restaurant, he asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I said “I thought you would have sorted it by now!!” then he said “no but I have got you this” and produced the ring. I was in TOTAL shock.
I had a weekend in my home town of Bournemouth and Phill had a night in Southampton.
By having honest opinions all the way through and doing what he could
The forum helped me pick songs and kept me sane!!!
It was Jean Fox; a little known Australian designer from a lovely shop in The New Forest.
My best friend Jo and her daughter as flower girl.
His best friend Stuart, they wore black tux with teal cravats and ivory waistcoats, my son, godfather and brother were ushers.
Religious. We married in the same church as my dear Nan. We didn’t find out until she died, and looked at the her marriage certificate, it was like it was meant to be. She got married during the war, then moved to Canada, came back and lived in a Village in Dorset for the rest of her life, I then moved to Totton New Forest from Bournemouth to be with Phill, this is where my Nanna grew up and got married!
