LOVE STORY NATASHA GRUN­BERG AND JONATHAN STOLLER

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community -

RAISED in Hamp­stead Gar­den Sub­urb, Natasha, 25, stud­ied phi­los­o­phy at Birm­ing­ham Univer­sity. She cur­rently works in events for Weiz­mann UK, sup­port­ing the Weiz­mann In­sti­tute of Science in Re­hovot, Is­rael.

Twenty-eight-year old Jonathan grew up in Pin­ner, stud­ied maths at Ox­ford Univer­sity, and works as an in­vest­ment ad­viser for ac­tu­ar­ial firm Tow­ers Wat­son.

The cou­ple both en­joy trav­el­ling. Jonathan: “I love trav­el­ling and al­ways seem to be fly­ing some­where ex­otic when­ever I take some time off work. Our lat­est ad­ven­ture was to Ar­gentina and Brazil in De­cem­ber, where we hiked glaciers in Patag­o­nia and danced to the Samba beat in Rio.

“I am also a big sports fan – I avidly sup­port Wat­ford, through thick and mostly thin, while fol­low­ing most other sports too. Can’t wait for the Olympics next year!”

Natasha: “In-be­tween day dream­ing about the lat­est fash­ion col­lec­tions and watch­ing

you’ll find me de-stress­ing at a Bikram yoga class. I en­joy the theatre and any­thing that’s play­ing at the Na­tional is a must-see in my eyes.

“Along with Jonny I love see­ing the world and am in­trigued to find out what and where he’s planned for our hon­ey­moon. Con­sid­er­ing how amaz­ing the trip that he planned to Ar­gentina and Brazil was, I bet it will be some­thing re­ally spe­cial.”

The cou­ple are mar­ry­ing in Is­rael in March and plan to set up home in east Finch­ley

How we met Natasha: “It was on a blind date set up by my flat­mate at the time. I had been com­plain­ing that I’d had enough of the dat­ing scene and had de­cided to go on hol­i­day for two weeks and that I would be tak­ing a break from meet­ing men af­ter the hol­i­day.

But my flat­mate con­vinced me to meet with Jonny and the rest, as they say, is his­tory.

Jonathan: “My flat­mate and Natasha’s flat­mate had been talk­ing, and thought the two of us should meet for a drink. We had a pleas­ant evening and I thought it wouldn’t do much harm to ask Natasha out for a sec­ond date, and the sparks started to fly since then.

Natasha and Jonathan: The wed­ding, like the pro­posal, is to be in Is­rael
