Martha and Daniel planned their big day at Macdonald Ansty Hall in just six weeks

Martha and Daniel met at a pub in Meriden. “Since that first meeting, we’ve been inseparable,” says Martha. “We met up every day following our first date and found we had lots in common. We love rugby, with Dan supporting Wasps RFC and me supporting Exeter Chiefs, so we spent our third date at a local game.”

Daniel popped the question during a trip to Rhodes for Martha’s birthday. “The day before my birthday we went quad biking and planned to drive down to Lindos, but it was so hot, and the bike was quite slow, so we didn’t make it,” shares the bride. “Dan then suggested we go back out in the evening, which I thought was strange but went along with it. We went to Kallithea Beach and found a cliff you could climb up, so we made our way to the top to watch the sunset. We were taking pictures of the view when Dan asked me to stand on the edge so he could take a photo of me. I didn’t think anything of it, and when I turned around, he was on one knee with the ring in this hand. I was so shocked and instantly cried. It
was perfect.”
