On 10th June 2000 my husband and I first met face-to-face. We had been speaking to eachother over the phone every day for the previous 6 months through our jobs (I worked for an Insurance Broker and Lee worked for one of the Insurance Companies that we dealt with). Our work phone-calls progressed to exchange of personal phone numbers and email addresses and finally one day we decided to meet up in person. As I lived in Sandhurst, Berkshire and Lee lived in Gravesend, Kent we decided to meet eachother "halfway" in London (outside his office).
We had a lovely day together and the instant attraction that we'd had over the phone intensified in "real-life", but things were complicated as I already had a boyfriend at the time. However, when Lee dropped me off at the train station to make my journey home that afternoon I seized the moment and kissed him (before jumping out of the car and running into the station!).
There were many a complication over the few months that followed but we finally got together in the September. We got engaged in the December and Lee moved to Berkshire to live with me at my parents' house early in 2001.
6 years to the day after we met in person we were exchanging vows at Hempstead House in Sittingbourne. It was a beautiful day, a full-on heat-wave and I will always remember how perfect our wedding day was.
