    Hi all,

    My name is Siobhan (Shiv for short) and my partner and I have been engaged for 3 weeks but we have been together 8 years. We have always said we would want to get married abroad but now I can actually start researching it!

    We still don't have a wedding date or definate destination - its changing a lot at the moment. Ideally we would want to get married in South Africa whilst on safari but we don't think our parents would be too impressed with that.

    My finance and I live in Devon in the UK. I work as a civilian in the police and my h2b is a submariner in the royal navy. We have a dog called Snowy and two bunnies.

    Looking forward to getting to know you all.

          Hi Shiv,

          Congrats and welcome to the forum. I'm an anglophile myself but it would not be practical to get married in the UK. I will have to wait and take FI to England in a few years. He hasn't been yet and I get antsy when too many years pass between UK visits.

          Soon I will get to post wedding pics, figure I should get some more Philip in first!
