Dionne Hickey (23) of Falkirk is a professional singer, while Chris Barrett (24) is a scaffolder and originally from Bristol. The couple live in Skinflats.

HOW THEY MET: The newlyweds met while on holiday in Magaluf in June 2014 – and a long-distance romance began.

THE PROPOSAL: Chris had been planning to propose when the couple visited the Edinburgh Christmas market ... but forgot the ring. So he chose a quiet moment when they were at home in November 2015.

THE WEDDING: The couple were married at The Vu in Bathgate on December 10, 2017 when they were joined by 120 day guests and a further 20 in the evening. Dionne said it was a perfect day with winter sunshine but was -7° and she almost got hypothermia when the photographs were being taken.

THE WEDDING PARTY: The best man was Chris’s son Sonny (3). Made of honour was Dionne’s sister Courtney Hickey, while sister Elyse was bridesmaid along with Leona Campbell, Kiera Lapsley, Jodie Fraser and Sasha Barnaby. Ushers were James Pentland, Aaron Garland, Ross Grant and Jason Turner.

THANKS: The couple would like to thank their parents and all their family and friends for joining them in their special day.
