Alex and Becca – Teenage Sweethearts
Becca and Alex met aged just 15 and 17 with the help of a mutual friend. Although they lived very close, their paths had never really crossed before one day, when Alex was waiting at the bottom of the hill for a friend, Becca managed to slip down said hill as they walked past (do we all remember those silly loafers we all used to wear?), causing Alex to ask, “who’s your clumsy friend?”
Many years later, Alex proposed to Becca in Abu Dhabi. They’d been gifted tickets to the Formula 1, and Alex had kept the ring safe in a secret compartment in their rucksack all day, planning to propose on the hill at the track. Becca’s playsuit, however, had other ideas and split in a rather embarrassing place, meaning the couple had to leave before he’d got the chance! Later on, while Becca was doing her makeup she heard Alex ask her to come and look at something in the bedroom. Naturally, Becca shouted back “can’t you just come and show me here, I’m doing my makeup!” Unperturbed by the lack of reply, Becca continued to finish her makeup first, and then went through to the bedroom. There she found Alex on one knee – he’d been there since he’d asked her to go and look at something! After saying yes, the couple ordered burgers to their hotel room and telephoned their friends and family to share the good news.
Becca and Alex organised plenty of small elements for the big day, including lollipops for favours, personalised children’s activity bags and hangover kits for all of their guests! To ensure that the dance floor was packed all night, Becca purchased enough flip flops for all the girls, which she tied with parcel string and a label indicating the size – that way, no one could complain of sore feet! They couldn’t have done it all without the support of their amazing family and friends, who all made sure that the couple had the most amazing day.
