"My mum always told me that I should meet a nice girl who wanted to look after me and that’s Chloe," says James. "Planning the rest of my life with her is exciting and I couldn’t be happier." His adoration is mutual. "Our relationship just gets stronger and stronger,"& says Chloe. "James is funny, smart, articulate and always a gentleman. I love everything about him."
Before the big day, Chloe also spoke to HELLO! about the arrangements, saying: "James is a traditional guy and wants us to marry in a traditional setting." She revealed that the legal ceremony was going to take place in a registry office but, inspired by the royal wedding in May, it was held in the church near where the groom grew up. "I think it was Meghan and Harry's wedding that inspired James to choose to get married in church. He sat me down and said, 'I can tell you why I love you every day but I won't get to make these vows unless we marry in church. I want to get married in a serious, historical ceremony,'" remembered Chloe. "It was very romantic. Until then I'd assumed we'd just pop in to a register office. Now I find the thought of standing in front of him in church very exciting. I love him to bits."
