THE COUPLE: Philip is 35, from Brightons, and works in London as a civil servant, and Denisa, who is originally from the Czech Republic, is 26 and is a dentist in London. The couple live in Essex.

HOW THEY MET: The couple met on a date in London’s east end after meeting through mutual friends.

THE PROPOSAL: Phil popped the question in Venice last April.

THE WEDDING: The wedding was held on May 12 in Prague. The couple married in a chateau in the countryside and held an evening reception on the Golf Yacht in Prague. Over 60 guests celebrated with the couple, including a large Falkirk contingent.
