Eve and Jonny met at a theatre company in Germany. “Jonny was an actor, and I was a prop maker,” says Eve. “He was the second Northern person I’d ever met, so I thought of him as a bit of a celebrity. We got together one night on the dancefloor on the last weekend before Jonny embarked on a nine-month tour around Germany. I told him to stay in touch, and the rest is history.”
Jonny popped the question during a Sunday morning stroll around Greenwich Park in 2017. “Our two friends were with us and suggested they take a photograph of us under a tree,” shares the bride. “When he proposed, I was very surprised and aghast for what felt like an eternity for Jonny, but I finally said yes. More of our friends were hiding in another area of the park with balloons, bunting and a picnic complete with personalised gingerbread men that looked like us.”
