How They Met
The newlyweds met through a mutual friend at university. Chamberlain, a mechanical engineer, was getting his masters degree at Newcastle University in the UK when he was introduced to his artist bride.
The bride and groom’s Christian background and faith was the foundation to their successful relationship for three years prior to getting married. It also played a big role in their families accepting one another.
The proposal happened two days before Christmas in 2015. Chamberlain chose a lovely restaurant in Ponteland, Newcastle and had two of his friends and two of her friends eat at the restaurant on a table tucked away from the couple’s.
After their meal, the couple ordered dessert, and soon after the restaurant manager played Marry Me by Jason Derulo while bringing the ring on a decorated dessert tray along with a bottle of champagne.
On hearing the song, Alex was in shock and Chamberlain took her hands and got on one knee and asked her to marry him while the crowd, including their friends, stood with excitement and she happily said YES while the crowd cheered.
Advice for Other Couples
Ensure you truly love each other for who you are after you strip off financial/ other sort of interests that may attract you to someone.
Mixed culture relationships will be a challenge except you understand and accept both cultures and most importantly, you must have something in common. For us, we have the respect, fear and love for God in common.
BellaNaija Weddings wishes Alexandra and Chamberlain a blessed and beautiful life as One.
