About Us

Steph

StephSteph grew up in Fife and went to university in Aberdeen. She is Lead Pharmacist for Surgery at North Middlesex University Hospital. She enjoys baking and cooking, even if the kitchen is tiny. There is always room for a gin and tonic however! She used to ski and surf and although opportunities for both are limited in West London, the surfboard is an integral part of the living room!

Mitchell

MitchellMitchell was born in Chatham, Kent 31 years ago. He has also lived in Reading, Aberdeen and London. He now works at Heathrow Airport as a Delivery Manager in Security. Before that he worked at The 2012 Olympic Games in London. He has 'too many' CDs, DVDs and LPs and has visited 21 European capital cities so far. Many question the infrequent nature of his haircuts.

How we met...

A previous job of Mitchell's in the oil industry took him to Aberdeen in 2009 and he met Steph the day after her birthday, in a bar on Belmont St. He had only been living there for a couple of weeks!

The proposal...

One chilly morning in New York last December, Mitchell took Steph to the top of The Empire State Building. Thankfully he never intended to propose there which was lucky as Steph wouldn't have taken her gloves off in that cold!

Instead he swiftly ushered her to the top floor of The Museum of Modern Art as soon as it opened where he surprised her with an engagement ring in front of Van Gogh's "The Starry Night" and a small number of oblivious Chinese tourists.
