Although the idea of planning a wedding in a year, or less, may seem completely bonkers – it can be done and is perhaps more common than you think! There has certainly been a recent trend for shorter engagements, Megan Markle and Prince Harry for example, who were married after 7 and a half months. They did, of course, have a budget fit for a future king and queen, but planning a wedding within a shorter time frame does not mean breaking the bank.
Kelly met Stephen when she started her new job in 2011.
After their first date to ‘La Tasca’ in Manchester, many more followed over the next five years. In 2016 they enjoyed a romantic meal served outdoors on the final night of their holiday to Mexico. Returning to their room later, Kelly found champagne, chocolates and a cake which read ‘Happy Birthday’. Confused, she turned around to find Stephen on bended knee!
