HOW THE MET: The couple first knew each other over 18 years ago but about three years ago met when Katie went into the shop.

THE PROPOSAL: David had phoned Katie’s dad to ask permission, then as the bells chimed to welcome 2017 he proposed – and she said yes!

THE WEDDING: The couple were married at Falkirk Registry Office on October 6 followed by a reception at the Antonine Hotel in Falkirk. They had 40 guests during the day and a further 60 at night.
