Tell us a little about yourselves, what you do, what you love, what is unique about you and your relationship… Shawn grew up in Kaikoura, I grew up in Hanmer Springs. We met through mutual friends in our early twenties in Kaikoura at a surf competition, and would bump into eachother over the years to come. We both now can speak of how we felt a crazy spark each time we’d see eachother.
Tell us a little about yourselves, what you do, what you love, what is unique about you and your relationship… We had been together nearly seven and a half years! Our wedding was a week after our seven-year anniversary.
We were engaged for ten months. We wanted to get married sooner rather than later and so kept the engagement relatively short (but not so short that we rushed the planning!).
Tell us a little about yourselves, what you do, what you love, what is unique about you and your relationship… Ramon is the head sommelier at Stokehouse Q and I am an account manager for Bibendum Wine Co. We have been together for an amazing 4.5 years and engaged for 16 months.
Ramon had planned to propose on a holiday that we had planned, but one Wednesday morning when we were at home in our pyjamas still, he decided it was the right moment, and popped the question then. And it was so much more perfect that way. We’re very happy that we got to have that moment completely private, it’s so much more ‘us’!
