They enjoyed each other’s company on a work night out and, six months later, Victoria arranged another one just so she could spend some more time with Gareth.
From there, the couple began to date and quickly fell in love.
They became engaged on January 12, 2012 on a holiday to Cancun in Mexico.
“We were on the beach and Gareth had a wee token ring with him,” Victoria said. “It was very romantic.
“And when we got home I trailed him around Belfast for six hours and got an engagement ring.”
Gareth and Victoria were married on January 12, 2013 — a year to the day from their engagement — and their special day was everything they dreamt it would be.
Their first dance as husband and wife was to the Ellie Goulding version of Your Song.
“Titanic Belfast was an amazing venue,” Victoria said.
“We both wanted somewhere unusual and neither of us are religious, so we didn’t see the point of a church wedding.
“Titanic Belfast completely blew us away. It was unbelievable.
“The staff were so lovely and helpful. We had a great day.”
Following their wedding, the couple headed to Cavan for a few days on a mini-honeymoon, ahead of a holiday to Bali in Indonesia, and are thoroughly enjoying being married.
“I love it,” Victoria said.
“We lived together before we were married so not much has changed, except I have had to get used to a new surname.
“But it’s brilliant, we are very happy.”
Gareth and Victoria had a wonderful wedding day and want to extend their thanks to all their family and friends for their support.
“Thanks to everybody that helped us and was there for us,” Victoria said.
“Essential DJs did a great job and we must also mention William Bittle, our photographer from Digital Bride, who took such lovely snaps on the day.”
