Amanda and Phil were introduced when she moved to London. “We hit it off right away and proceeded to have a whirlwind romance with trips to the theatre, picnics in Hyde Park and weekends in the Lake District,” says Amanda. “We started travelling the world making so many incredible memories together. Everything just fell into place perfectly.”
Phil proposed during a surprise trip to Switzerland. “I had no idea where we were going, and all he’d said was to pack winter clothes and walking boots,” shares the bride. “As soon as I found out where we were going, I was over the moon! Phil is half Swiss, and my family used to holiday in Switzerland when I was younger, so it’s a special place for both of us. On the second day of our holiday, we caught the cable car up to the very top of a mountain where we saw beautiful blue skies and the most incredible views of the Matterhorn. I turned around, and Phil was down on one knee in the snow asking me to marry him. I, of course, said ‘yes’. We then skied down the mountain, popped open a bottle of champagne and celebrated in style in our Swiss chalet. It was the perfect proposal.”
