Both Carly and Sam are godparents to Marlee, but had not met before as they didn’t live near each other. Their mutual friend Jo (Marlees mum), decided to throw them both in the same room and see what would happen, but not before giving Sam some hints of what Carly was like!
Sam turned up in a care-bear onesie for their first date (Carly has over 500 care-bears), so it was fair to say that Carly knew he was the one after that!!
Sam and Carly like to visit English Heritage sites on their days off together and have a keen interest in History. Sam was groomsman at a wedding at Old Wardour Castle in Tisbury, Wiltshire a couple of years ago and they fell in love with the crumbly spiral staircases at Wardour. They also wanted to do the engagement shoot with me in a place more connected to Sam as the wedding is based near where Carly grew up, near Bournemouth, Dorset.
