Congratulations Tash and John!
Winners of our 16k Wedding Giveaway!
They met on 29th January 2017 at a Social Club picnic at Glenelg. John had never made it to an event
before and Tash was a frequent flyer loving opportunities to get out and meet new people. They
had seen each other in the Facebook group over the past few months, commenting on each other’s
posts now again but it had never gone further than that. Though Tash may have stalked John’s page
on more than one occasion a bit intrigued by this mystery man.
They talked a little at the picnic though not for any long period of time as John is more reserved and
shy, not really knowing anyone there while Tash was talking up a storm with anyone and everyone.
John later confessed he was hesitant to talk to her as he thought she was out of his league (BLESS!!). She was
even more intrigued by the man with the kindest eyes she had ever seen and later that night had a
dream about him. In the morning her mind was set, she needed to know this man as he was
Tash had never had much luck with relationships in the past, whilst having partners none of them
made her think of marriage or having children together. Tash is a social worker and for a bit there it
almost seemed like she was bringing her work home with her (luckily none of them were clients!!)
She had a beautiful little girl and decided to enjoy her time with her daughter and loved every
second they were together. She knew it would take someone really special to come into her life as it
was so wonderful just as it was.
John had previously been married and had other relationships but none of these had been the right
fit for him, none of them were for the long haul. He has two older children and he focused on his
work and worked every second he could driving trucks, pretty much giving up on having another
Seizing the moment Tash sent out a friend request to John on Facebook (modern wooing) to show
him how much she liked him. He accepted her request and the shy man who didn’t speak much did
not stop talking on Messenger, he still hasn’t. He recalls their first date as being at the park and then
pizza for dinner and feeling so comfortable that he stayed talking until 3am despite some yawning
coming from Tash.
They have been inseparable ever since, talking and laughing and being silly. They compliment each
other and bring out the best in each other. Since they first started talking there has never been any
doubt that marriage is where they were headed. They are both so excited to be bringing their families
together and filling their futures with amazing adventures and experiences.
Tash – Dr Seuss said it best “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally
better than your dreams” and baby, we can’t sleep.
