Nicolò  & Zahra

How we met...

Like a lot of modern couples, we matched online.  Our very first conversations revolved around one of our favourite things to do - drink tea. Our first date was at the Mock Turtle tea shop in Brighton. 

The proposal...

We took a walk around Regents Park in London and stumbled across a small gazebo and decided to sit there. Nico proposed to Zahra with a silk tea bag with 'marry me' written on the label. He had cut the tea bag open himself and stitched the ring back up inside. Nico hung the label out of his front jacket pocket but Zahra hadn't noticed it so he slipped into her hand instead! She said - Yes, I will!
