Our Story...

Kris & Kate met online through a mutual friend and used to spend hours on their family computers chatting to each other. After a year and a half, they decided to meet in person, and soon after became a couple. They have survived the many ups and downs of living together in various parts of the country over the past 10 years. In November 2015, Kris popped the question on Charles Bridge in Prague, once he finally got Kate to stop talking! The holiday was disguised as a late birthday present for Kate so it came as a surprise, but of course she said yes, and now they are getting married!


Kate's Story...

Kate grew up in Wellingborough, then Rushden. She considers herself lucky to have 3 younger brothers that she loves to spend time with, as well as a large, loving extended family. Kate studied Economics and Sociology at the University of Sheffield, and graduated in 2011. She has had a successful 6 year career with Build-A-Bear Workshop, and is currently a store manager in the Telford store. Unfortunately for Kris, this means she also owns a lot of teddies!


Kris' Story...

Kristian grew up in Wellingborough, an energetic middle child with an interest in everything around him. Kris graduated in 2014 with a Masters Degree in Engineering from Sheffield Hallam University. He secured a job with McGeoch Technology in Birmingham and has been working hard for the past 3 years following his aspirations to climb into upper management. Kris is currently a Project Team Manager and works on a lot of secretive projects. Kate enjoys this as it decreases the number of “interesting things” Kris can tell her about his job!
