Damian and Lauren first set eyes on each other at a work function in London, England. The attraction was instant, but it came with a time limit as Lauren’s visa was due to expire in just six months. They spent the next six months living together and had agreed to break up when it was time for Lauren to go home. However, when the time came they couldn’t bear the idea; they opted for a long distance relationship with a 16 month wait for Damian’s visa to be granted!
During this time Damian arranged a holiday to Monte Carlo, and it was here he proposed in the gardens outside the famous Grand Casino.
He presented Lauren with a $10 fake ring, whilst the totally unique one he’d designed was being made. Another visa time limit was in place and the couple were engaged for ten months, with seven of those used to plan their perfect wedding!
