They share their engagement story with us.

On a Saturday night in Brisbane’s West End six years ago, Viv became distracted by a free spirit on the dancefloor. Viv couldn’t focus on the conversation with her friends and they prompted her to go and speak to her. She approached Cien and said; ‘hi, I’m Viv’ and it was all it took.
