After locking sticks playing for the University of Southampton Engineers and Nurses Hockey Team, Alison Mann and Jay Meas soon became good friends. Two years on, romance blossomed leading to them ditching their jobs to set off on an adventure travelling through Latin America before embarking on a polar cruise from Argentina to Antarctica. On Christmas Eve, 2014, while exploring Paradise Bay on the Antarctic Peninsula, Jay popped the question as they were taking in the amazing views. “I said 'yes', of course!” recalls Alison.
They set the compass homeward for the big day, opting for a country wedding at St Mary's Church in Flixton, Suffolk followed by a marquee reception in the garden of Alison's parents' home on 8th July, 2017.
