Modern wedding with fantastic red bridal gown - The Couple
Melissa Northrop, a careers adviser, and James Wilcox, a commercial manager first saw each other on a night out for work six years ago. We didnt speak to each other that night, but when I saw him again two weeks later in a club I decided not to let him get away a second time, says Melissa. After plenty of eye contact and some cheeky smiles we got talking and he asked me out.
Four years later, on the last day of a holiday in Hong Kong, James took Melissa for champagne cocktails and dinner to celebrate her birthday. I assumed he was making my birthday so special because it was our last night there, admits Melissa.
After the meal he took me for a romantic stroll along the harbour front and we sat looking at the skyline and the ships roll in and out. It was a complete surprise when he got down on one knee and presented me with a beautiful ring, but I said yes immediately.
