Victoria had her eye on Scott during their school days, but they only reconnected years later online. The couple were engaged in New York and tied the knot last year. This week, we meet Scott Wright, a police officer, and Victoria Wright, a contract manager in Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
Scott and Victoria knew one another from school, however, as they were in different years they had not interacted. More than five years ago, they reconnected through Twitter and have been together ever since.
“I always knew that I liked Scott at school, but he didn’t feel the same! We’d only been together a couple of months when I knew he was the one. I don’t think there was a moment for Scott though, it came over time,” says Victoria.
Will you marry me?
Scott proposed in Central Park, New York on his 30th birthday. Shares Victoria, “He had tried to do the proposal before on the boating lake in Central Park, however, I commented on how many other couples that day were getting engaged and made a joke out of it. Safe to say, he didn’t think that was the best timing! Scott made me scramble up a rock which overlooked the park and while it was just the two of us there and while I was admiring the views, I turned around to find him on one knee.”
The ring of a lifetime
Scott made to order a princess-shape diamond solitaire ring from 77 Diamonds for Victoria. “The ring was perfect. I was lost for words when I saw him on one knee and even more so when I saw how beautiful the ring was. I instantly said yes when he asked me to marry him.”
“We’re happier than we’ve ever been and I’m still getting used to being Scott’s wife and my new name,” Victoria smiles. The couple also chose their wedding rings from 77 Diamonds.
The couple were married in church in a village called Whiston, Rotherham where Victoria grew up and where her mother resides. They had an intimate gathering of their closest family and friends with the reception at The West Retford Hotel, Retford. “The gardens and grounds were amazing which is why we chose it; the sun was shining all day which made the day extra special. Everyone had a great time. The day was perfect and couldn’t have gone any better,” Victoria beams.
