Olivia and Max had an elegant day against a snowy city backdrop
Olivia and max - the proposal
Max Stewart had a romantic surprise proposal in store for his high-school sweetheart Olivia Holborow, but an over-eager jeweller scuppered his grand plans. “I was lying on the couch on a Sunday morning in my pyjamas and Max’s mobile rang,” explains Olivia. “He was doing the dishes and let it go to voicemail. When he checked it, he had the phone on loudspeaker and a voice said, ‘Hi Max, it’s the jewellers just calling to let you know the ring is ready…’ at which point Max swore rather loudly! He was upset his plans had been ruined, but I thought it was great – I couldn’t have been more surprised!” So, proposal achieved (albeit haphazardly), the couple, both 26, started planning their elegant wintry wedding in London.
