Introducing the newly engaged Sophie and James! The lovely couple first met in October 2018 after connecting on Bumble. Sophie initially thought James’ profile was fake – he looked too good to be true!
She quickly realised that James was the real deal, and they had their first date at the Newcastle Art Gallery soon after.
James proposed on a weekday – so to Sophie their engagement was a huge surprise! On this particular weekday, James was at Sophie’s parents for much of the afternoon helping her dad in the garden, or so she thought!
Sophie’s Mum planned to visit her house the same afternoon to see how the latest renovations to their house were coming along. Sophie was working from home and was wearing her finest attire when her mum arrived – ugg boots and a sparkly tracksuit!
Her Mum suggested she get changed and be ready to leave home in an hour for “an early 30th birthday present” even though Sophie’s birthday wasn’t for a few months! But her lovely mum assured her that due to Covid the surprise had been brought forward.
She got changed and not long after saw a car reversing into her driveway – a beautiful pink 1950s Chevvy!
Her Mum waved her off as she hopped in and whisked her to the Newcastle foreshore, the place where James and Sophie shared their second date.
When she pulled into the car park James was waiting in his suit, looking very sharp! But Sophie still had no idea of what was about to transpire.
The sunset was beautiful, so James suggested a walk. On the walk, James dropped to one knee and popped the question. Sophie described it as the best moment of her life.
That night they shared an incredible dinner at Roundhouse to finish the spectacular day off!
Congratulations Sophie and James!
