Tell me about your The Beginning!
We met the modern way! Through the dating app called Coffee Meets Bagel, I was on exchange at University of South Florida for a year when I decided to give dating/meeting people a try and apps seemed to be fun! We matched straight away and we just hit it off – we talked non-stop over multiple social apps and made a date for the next week almost immediately.
When and where did you get engaged?
We got engaged a couple days before I left in January 2022 – at his place. We had been spending the past week recuperating from COVID, and I kept making plans with friends, to a point where it had to be cancelled. I took a nap and then when I woke up to him cooking some chicken and leftovers. Once he put my plate in front of me as I was sitting on the couch watching The Simpsons reruns, he told me to close my eyes. When I opened my eyes, there was a vase of flowers sitting on the table, and he was bent down on one knee. I didn’t really give him time to ask me the “big question” as I just squealed and said yes straight away.
What style/theme have you chosen for your Wedding Day?
We’ve gone for a simple, laid-back style for our Wedding Day – we want no stress, and just lots of fun, much like us. Our colours are all very toned-back with pops of colours.
What are you most looking forward to on the day?
Caroline – I am most looking forward to finally being married to Matthew and celebrating this moment with friends and family.
Matthew – I’m looking forward to finally being able to call Caroline my wife and to bring our families together in this union. Also the food and drinks haha.
Be as organised as you can and ask lots of questions!! You can never be too organised or ask too many questions!
