How we met...

We met at St James church in Clitheroe when B's family moved from Norfolk up to Lancashire. Ben attempted to persue B, but she wasnt interseted. For 4 years one liked the other but never at the same time. 1st October 2006 B needed a lift to the train station to go back down to Bristol, and called on her old friend Ben. The train miraculously disapeared and Ben and B spent the evening together. They had a few beverages and walked up to St Marys church in Clitheroe where they shared their first kiss.

The proposal...

B was spending the week back at home in Clitheroe for her brothers birthday. Ben was to join her on the Friday. Thursday came and B got a text saying Ben was coming back early and was taking her out for dinner. They went for dinner and had a lovely evening. Ben then decided that it was too early to go back home so took B off into town for a walk, where they ended up at St Marys church. The first time they had been back since their first kiss. They stood in the exact same place as they had done 2 and a half years before, Ben got down on one knee and proposed!
