JASON ANd GlEN
e met at the gym, where I was an instructor.
Glen was a participant in the classes but then
we lost contact. We met up later through
mutual friends and saw each other as part of
the group before eventually getting together.
Our friendship grew and grew and turned into a relationship
and we’d been together for seven years when we thought it
would be nice to be married. We’d arranged a trip to Paris in
November 2014 to celebrate Glen’s birthday, but I had no idea
what was about to happen when we went up the Eiﬀel Tower.
We were at the top of the tower and Glen went to get
champagne – which I refused because it was so expensive for
a plastic ﬂute. Then he proposed and I wished I had just
bought the champagne!
I wanted to elope, but Glen wanted a wedding at home so
the family could attend. We ended up having the best of both.
I booked a holiday to the USA, asked our friends to come, and
then decided to have the wedding in New York as part of our
pink weddings magazine » 45
