Jen and Yousiff met playing Roller Derby. “It’s a contact sport on roller skates,” says Jen. “We naturally progressed from friends to a relationship and found we have the same sense of humour and interests.”
Yousiff proposed during a drive to the Peak District. “We were on our way to watch the Perseid meteor shower but unfortunately it was a bit cloudy that night,” shares the bride. “As we were getting ready to go and I was sitting in the passenger seat, Yousiff surprised me with a gorgeous sapphire ring and asked me to marry him.”
