Truly, Madly, Deeply


I met David on Gaydar in 2004. We spoke for a few weeks then arranged to meet for a coffee in Liverpool one afternoon in October. We hit it off, had loads in common and found out we even went to the same primary school (David was four years below me). After that we went out a few times, even managing to attend a few family parties, and a relationship was born. Less than a year later we were also working together. I proposed to David on Valentine’s Day 2012, while on holiday in Antigua. Within 12 months we had set up a business together — a graphic design wedding stationery company, so we had no problem designing our invitations and had lots of contacts in the wedding industry to make our day perfect. We were married on 20 March 2015 at Knowsley Hall, just outside Liverpool, surrounded by families and friends. Two days later we went on an amazing three-week honeymoon, starting in Las Vegas and finishing in Hawaii. Our relationship stays strong because of the love we continue to have for each other, as well as the support and confidence we give each other. We remain best friends — yes, we argue and moan but it’s healthy to be able to share disagreements and to be able to say what we are thinking and how we feel. I love David more today than yesterday and I’ll love him more tomorrow when I wake up next to him. My life would be empty without him.
