Let's just clear up the Bingo thing: He's called Bingo after the Bear from the Banana splits as they have a very similar smile - he's had this nickname for over 12 years
How it all began: We met in 2010 at a mutual friend's birthday party, and I decided there and then that he was my new favourite person. 
My favourite thing about him: He's adorable ! He makes me laugh like no one else does and because he wears his heart on his sleeve. 
His favourite thing about me: Because I make him laugh and he says I'm very sweet and caring. I agree.
Our favourite way to spend a day: A Motorcycle ride in the countryside and a pub lunch
How he proposed: In a tree house in Loire, France on my birthday - on June 19th 
Why I'm The Reluctant Bride: Because I'm not good at the cheesy stuff. I'm a total tom boy and never actually thought I'd ever get married. I’m really excited about planning everything and making it our day. I just hope I don’t turn into a bridezilla.
