MOL­LIE AND JOSEPH JOHN­STON

Perfect Wedding Magazine - - Love Stories -

“We met on the ferry on a school ski­ing trip to Aus­tria, 49 years ago. Joe asked “can I sit here?”, I said no, and he sat down any­way – and here beginneth the story. Joe was from Belfast, but I lived in Keigh­ley, York­shire, so we spent the next few years writ­ing to each other, with the odd (very ex­pen­sive) tele­phone call – all quite frowned upon by our par­ents. Joe came to visit me just be­fore my 21st birth­day and took me out, in­tro­duc­ing me to wine other than Ma­teus rosé! One day he called me at work and asked if I was free, say­ing he would take me wher­ever I wanted to go. We met up, took the train from Leeds to Keigh­ley and, af­ter a lot of chat­ting, we re­alised that we wanted to be to­gether. Joe pro­posed at Keigh­ley Sta­tion!”
