Margot and Christopher – Length of engagement: 

A little under a year

How did you meet?

Margot and Chris’s love story began in the digital age, sparked by a serendipitous encounter on the dating app Bumble. Their connection deepened over glasses of wine in a quaint London wine bar, setting the stage for a journey of love and adventure that would culminate in a magical wedding day.

They said: We’ll meet On Bumble! Then, we hit it off in a little wine bar in London.

We returned to our gorgeous room overlooking the abbey, which was full of roses, chocolates, and a big bottle of champagne. I promptly said, “Wrong room!” and started to shut the door when he insisted we were in the right room. It was then he got down one knee and recited a beautiful speech. It was magical
