How we met...

In the pub. Ros tried to tell James the "whale" joke and spat cider & blackcurrant down the front of his beige top. Must have been love at first slaver!

The proposal...

Ros spotted a quirky ring she quite liked at a jewelry exhibition. James tracked down the designer, bought the ring and held onto it for a few years. Whilst at the Razorlight gig in the Corn Exchange on Sunday 16th November 2008, he surprised her with it and she said YES!
