Megan flipped the script and proposed to Kingy after five years as a couple.
She proposed in their tiny Blackheath studio flat, where they lived at the time, by secretly placing a banner behind the curtains of their window that read ‘Kingy will you marry me?’
After accepting the proposal the pair soon got to planning their wedding, choosing a location where Megan spent many of her summer holidays – Ireland. Each summer, 20 members of her family would journey to Clonakilty to spend time together and celebrate Megan’s little brother’s birthday.
“I’ve spent many days on the Inchydoney beach eating my favourite seafood chowder at the hotel on the Virgin Mary bank. Kingy has been coming with me to Ireland since 2011 and loves it just as much as I do. It made sense to have our wedding in this place that we both love,” says the bride.
On August 12, 2018 Megan and Kingy, both 32, celebrated tying the knot with a creative Cork wedding for 109 held at Inchydoney Hotel, Ireland. The date coincided with Megan’s brother’s 21st birthday, making it all the more special.

Megan purchased two 1950s gowns from Elizabeth Avey Vintage Wedding Dresses.
“The creative juices flowed in the flowers and splashes of colour,” says Megan.
Guests marked the occasion with a group run down a huge sand dune – something Megan and her family used to do when they were children.
