The love story:

Emily and Luke’s love story started when they were introduced together by two of their mutual friends Leesha and Sefa who decided to play cupid.

“ It quickly developed into the two of us playing cat and mouse with each other before falling madly in love”- Emily

The proposal:

Emily: “ We were overseas travelling the USA and we were spending a week in New York for Christmas at that time. On Christmas Eve we had a lovely lunch at Tavern on the green in Central Park. Afterwards we went for a walk through the park where we found a nice bench with a view of the park and skyline. It was at this moment that Luke got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.
