1. Donna Ellington and her fiancéThey will be getting married at our Aberdeen hotel in September. Donna was absolutely over the moon to hear that she had won our competition. Here’s their love story: “They say that it’s a bad idea to date your best friend's brother; but that’s exactly what I did! I had no idea that David Angus had feelings for me until he called me on my mobile phone at my brother's wedding in August 2002. He was a 'Deep Sea Fisherman' and was calling me from sea on the boat's satellite phone. He asked if he could take me out on a date on his return home. We went on that amazing date and many more amazing dates after that. We realised that we both shared the same hopes and dreams for the future. It felt as though we had known each other our whole lives. He was my 'missing jigsaw piece' and the rest, as they say, is history.”
