Katherine told us how they first met: “We have been together for 11 years and first met through mutual friends. After one year together, we decided to travel to Australia and stay there together for two years.

“When we returned, Daniel was offered a job in the UK so for four years we made it work, travelling back and forth as I had my job here. We didn’t let it get between us. He’s my absolute best friend!”

The couple, who live in Kilcully, got engaged back in 2019.

“Daniel surprised me at home when I walked through the door,” said Katherine.

Their special day was held at St Mary’s Church in Waterloo.
