Our Story

Alison

Alison

Alison is a jet-setting member of the cabin crew community, flying around the World from her base in New York. Without her job, she and Rob would probably never have rekindled the friendship which turned into the loving relationship they have now. A keen reader of books, baker of bread and cooker of meals, Alison is passionate about delectable delights and makes the most of the cultural immersion she gets from travelling abroad. 

Rob

Rob

Rob works in marketing for TopCashback but his primary passions lie in writing, football, cycling and aeroplanes. When he's not watching and writing about his beloved Crystal Palace, Rob spends most of his time either riding around the Surrey hillside or obsessing about aeroplanes and flying. And if he's not obsessing over planes, he's on them -- flying to wherever Alison is in the World. Oh, and he loves taking photos. Typically of Alison but also of planes. Because why not? 

Alison & Rob

How we met...

...we met for the first time many years ago, through friends, in sunny California. Years passed, with both Rob and Alison taking their own individual paths. It was in 2017 that everything changed. Alison moved to New York to work for an airline, and began flying to London.

Rob noticed this, and invited her to meet up with him for a guided tour of the city. This tour turned into more meetings, and more meetings turned into dates, and dates turned into a relationship, and the relationship turned into a marriage! 



Having lived thousands of miles apart, seeing each other on fleeting weekends in New York, London or another European city, Alison and Rob got married on the 22nd of March 2019 and are now setting up a home in Croydon. 

The proposal...

It was a typical day for Alison. A flight from New York to Paris. But there was a twist. Rob had booked a flight to meet her there, without her knowing. She landed, he landed, they met, they went to Les Jardins du Luxembourg and there, next to the Medici Fountain, Rob dropped to his knee and asked Alison the question he'd been wanting to ask for months. She said yes, and here we are!

Surrey, UK - August 31 2019



We are celebrating our marriage with drinks and nibbles at The Horseshoe Pub in Warlingham, a contemporary community pub with a global menu, a bright conservatory and a decked terrace.



The fun will start at 5pm but you're welcome to rock up whenever you can! Oh, and kids are definitely welcome!

UPDATE!!!

Having walked the route from the station, we'd recommend actually getting an Uber or a taxi from Upper Warlingham to The Horseshoe. We took an Uber back and it cost £5.50, so if you group together it'll be cheaper!

UPDATE 2!!!

If you do want to take public transport, there is a bus that goes direct from Sanderstead station up to Warlingham Green (which is about 5 minutes from the pub.) You'll want to get off at Sanderstead and get the 403 bus. 


HERE are bus directions.

California, USA - September 7, 2019

Our California celebrations will take place at Chez Benton, in the sunny suburb of Mather, California. 

Food (tacos!!!) and drinks will be provided, and we would love you to attend with family -- so yes, kids are definitely welcome!

A note about parking: please ensure you do so on the odd side of the street; in this case, the side across from Chez Benton.

Oh, and dress will be dressy casual.

The fun will start at 5pm on September 7.
