Read their love story as narrated by e bride and check out some photos from their fab. wedding.
Winnie and Patrick met at a chicken takeaway (takeout eatery) after a University event. Although Winnie was with two of her friends at the time, Patrick worked up the courage after persuasion from his wing-man to ask for Winnie’s number. Winnie and Patrick discovered a shared passion for a number of things – including Nando’s, Mojito Cocktail and Football (even though she supports his rival team Manchester City) – and have been quite the dynamic duo ever since.
After five years of dating, Patrick finally popped the question on Sunday 6th October 2013! Patrick took Winnie out for a walk at a tropical garden centre in Didsbury. He started saying heartfelt words to her, he reached for his pocket and moved toward his knee. Winnie laughed awkwardly, thinking it was all a joke, and then immediately freaked out when she realized…it wasn’t. Tears of joy appeared in her eyes. Winnie later on said that Patrick should have told her he was going to propose, so she could have gotten a manicure!
We wish the lovebirds a happy married life!
