Busy lawyers Louise Hume and Simon Rylatt met through Dating Direct, and Simon was the first date Louise went on – “He maintains the joining fee was the best £27 he’s ever spent!” she laughs.
The couple went away for a romantic weekend in Suffolk, where Simon planned to propose, but he actually popped the question kneeling on their bedroom floor when they got home. “I was completely surprised and was stunned into silence (unusually for me) – he had to ask again!”
The couple married in August 2008 in Rye, East Sussex, surrounded by friends and family from all over the world, including Australia, where Louise’s family are from.
