Our Story

Once upon a time, just about 3 years ago, Carmen and Matthew exchanged texts to one another over a beautiful photo of the moon. Their paths had crossed before while being in the South African Theatre industry, but little did they know that they would become each other's spouses. 

Carmen had applied for a job in Hong Kong and was already mindset on moving when Matthew made advances and asked her out, TWICE, before she eventually gave in and asked him the third time! They set off on a two year long-distance relationship. Never going a single day without talking to one another. 

After some challenges, Matthew made his way to Hong Kong for a visit which soon became the start of the adventure of a lifetime! On one beautiful summer's evening, in a park on a bridge, Matthew proposed! Carmen's knees buckled and answered YES and now they invite YOU to share in the next part of their story...
