What is the most powerful symbol of romance?
To me, the most powerful symbol of romance is the love heart. Whether is drawn on a piece of paper and left for you to find, written at the bottom of a love note or given to you as a gift in the form of jewellery or art, you always know the intention behind it.
What would be your dream romantic gesture?
If my husband arranged a surprise trip away with someone to look after our children for the weekend. Walks on the beach, meals out and some places to explore. It was a special occasion, a special piece of jewellery to remember it all by would also be lovely.
Share a love story.
My husband and I met on a trip to Oktoberfest in Germany and became friends. About 10 days later, upon our return to London, he had nowhere to live and so my friend invited him to stay with us. We kissed for the first time the night he moved in. We've been living together from that day and have been together for nearly 20 years now, married for over 16 years and have 2 children. We've travelled the world together and he is my best friend and soulmate.
