Oliver Peter Wilkins proposed to Josephine Jane Hayes on 3 August 2019 on the beach at Salthouse, near Cley Next the Sea, Norfolk, UK. They had a picnic of fizz, plus strawberries and cream. Then Ollie produced the ring...
Originally planned for 20 June 2020, the wedding was postponed twice as a result of coronavirus and is now a firm fixture for 11 June 2022.
The nuptuals will be performed by the Rev Robin Stapleford at St Mary The Virgin's Church in Whissonsett, Norfolk, with the reception and wedding breakfast taking place a few miles away at the Village Hall in Castle Acre, overlooking the amazing ruins of the 11th Century motte-and-bailey castle. Built around 1250, St Mary's is a lovely little church in a beautiful setting.
