A couple has been joined together on Christmas Day after matching on a dating app ten days earlier.
Metro UK reports that Sarah Edwards, 34, decided to marry Paul Edwards, 36, in Las Vegas on the spare of the moment for some reason but it looks like things are going well.
Mr Edwards told Good Morning Britain:
Mrs Edwards added:
‘Our first kiss was our wedding kiss and there are not many couples that can say they never even kissed before they’ve made that commitment to each other.’
The couple’s story has raised a few eyebrows, including from Mrs Edwards’ parents who Mr Edwards had to win over.
‘I think it says a lot about who he [Paul] is that he could win them over in half an hour. ‘They were fully supportive of us, and the same with your children and family, even though they haven’t met me yet. But I can’t wait to meet them.’
Things had moved quickly for the newlyweds after they matched on Bumble on December 15th and exchanged messages and spoke to each other for the first time on December 22nd.
They spoke again on the 23rd and decided to marry – despite never meeting face-to-face. They committed to each other and booked a wedding venue – the Bellagio Hotel and Casino.
Meeting for the first time at Gatwick Airport on Christmas Eve, the duo boarded a plane in full wedding gear and jetted off to Las Vegas to get married.
Mr Edwards from Chichester, West Sussex, has two daughters aged 13 and 15 from a previous relationship.
He was engaged earlier this year but his partner broke it off. Mrs Edwards, from Kent, is divorced and still lives with her ex.
Despite the strange circumstances the Edwards are convinced their union will work. Mr Edwards added:
‘I love Sarah for who she is and just likes marriages across the world, we will grow to love each other.’
