LOVE STORY "We met in November 2010 when I was doing promotional work at Niche Bar and Paul came up and spoke to me, we instantly hit it off and spoke for ages. He called me every night after we met and took me on some lovely dates. After 5 weeks Paul went on a preplanned trip to Europe for 3 months and we naturally picked it all back up when he returned. He told me he loved me and we made it official after 6 months (May 2011). We moved in to Paul’s apartment he renovated in West Leederville in 2014. We have travelled a lot together and to many amazing places for example: Borneo, Russia, Europe and the US. Paul proposed on the 27th of May 2018 and although we had been together 7 years it was still a surprise! We moved into our first home together that we built in Joondanna in November 2018 and got our first fur baby Ablett, our British Shorthair cheeky kitten. We married on the 13th of April 2019 and had the most amazing night."
WHERE DID YOU MEET? "Niche Bar in Leederville."
WHEN DID YOU KNOW IT WAS LOVE? "I don’t remember the exact moment I knew it was love, but even from when I first met Paul he was special and different to any other man I had ever met. We said I love you after 6 months together."
THE PROPOSAL "It was kept top secret, it was a Sunday morning and I thought we were going for breakfast with friends, he asked me in the garden in leederville which just so happens (by no coincidence) to be just outside of niche bar. The ring was my dream ring it is stunning, but we had never discussed rings before."
