It was love at first sight – NEW Real bride blog


Hi, my name is Laura Churcher, and I am going to be sharing my romantic story with you, of my journey leading up to my wedding in June

About four years ago, I was celebrating my birthday with a group of friends at the Toast Bar in Falmouth, where I was introduced to Josh by my friend’s boyfriend Rob. We hit it off from the start and Josh asked me out. I knew then that this was going to be the start of something special! It was love at first sight!

Our first date was at the Blue bar in Porthtowan. I was so excited, I can even remember what I wore – it was a floral top, jeans and boots. We started chatting and I couldn’t believe how well we got on. Over a bottle of wine we were soon talking about our families, I realised Josh went to school with my sister Megan and we spoke about our hobbies and interests. Josh told me he was born in Germany and speaks fluent German, he also told me he had an identical twin and I thought surely not, there are two of you! We didn’t stop chatting all evening and I felt like I’d known him for years. After we had finished our drinks we didn’t want the evening to finish so we decided to go for a walk along the beach which is still one of our favourite places as it holds special memories and Josh loves to surf there.

Within a few months, we’d booked our first holiday – a romantic trip away to Paris!

My next blog will be all about our first trip so look out for it!
