Meet Kelly & Jonathan
Name: Kelly Hepworth & Jonathan Fews
How long have you been together for: 3 years
How long have you been engaged: 2 years
How did you meet?
In the most romantic of ways… we met on a dating app! We messaged for a couple weeks and then decided to meet up in Cardiff for Tapas and Sherry.
I think we both knew instantly and within a month we had fallen completely in love. A year later, he booked a weekend away in a teepee in Southerndown, Bridgend; a place which I spent a lot time as a child.
At sunset, he opened a bottle of bubbly, got down on one knee and proposed to me with his late Grandmother’s ring.
Why should you both win a welsh wedding?
The past year has been extremely tough. Jon had a breakdown at the end of August last year, which was very traumatic. Not only that, but two days later Kelly fell off her bike; breaking a number of bones and resulting in 3 months off work & surgery.
With Jon’s illness, he took a lower paid job and so they just haven’t been able to afford the wedding that they’d love to have. Jon has also set up a charity – Garm Farm – to help others stuggling with mental health, which has also meant that they simply haven’t had time to plan a wedding either!
Throughout Jon’s breakdown, Kelly supported him and without her; he wouldn’t have got through it without her, and wants to win this wedding for Kelly as a way to say thank you!
