Matt first emailed me just before Christmas. We met for the first time in the New Year and got engaged in June that year. I was living in Lancashire and Matt in Bristol. I moved down to Bristol in August and became part of his church.
We did a marriage prep course with a couple from church which helped us to strengthen our relationship. We got married in the following May. It was an amazing day with family and friends including two other couples (one married and one soon to be) who also met on Christian Connection. I had been on CC for a while as had Matt. We were both looking for someone relatively local, until Matt widened his search and found me! At first it involved a lot of long journeys to see each other, but they were well worth it!
