A SMITTEN couple who got engaged at the Eiffel Tower said ‘I do’ in a magical ceremony surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

Nurse Danielle Conlon, 26, and joiner Darren Robinson, 27, tied the knot in an intimate wedding in Levens.

The pair first met at school when they were just teens, however, they did not romantically rekindle until years later.

Mrs Robinson said: “I bumped into him in the Trafford Centre when I was about 19 and ended up talking to one of his friends.

“Then Darren asked me if I wanted to go with him to Tesco one night and after that we never left each other’s side.

“He’s really laid back, chilled and funny. We’re really opposite, I’m quite outgoing and loud so we balance each other out quite well.”

For their first date, the couple went on a romantic trip away to the Lakes.

“We actually went to Keswick and stayed at the Lodge in the Vale which was really romantic,” she said.

“It was Christmas time too so it was really pretty.”

The pair took their relationship to the next step during a romantic trip away to Paris in 2015.

Mrs Robinson said: “Darren told me to pack a bag for the weekend and we went to Paris.

“He wanted to propose at the top of the Eiffel Tower but I’m terrified of heights, so it was actually at the bottom.

“I wasn’t expecting it at all. We’d just been to New York a few months before so I thought he would’ve done it then.

“I was really emotional, it came completely out the blue.”

The couple tied the knot at The Villa in Levens in front of 80 family members and friends.

“We’d always wanted to get married in the Lakes since we went there for first date,” Mrs Robinson said.

Mrs Robinson described the big day as ‘perfect’ and ‘chilled out’.

She said: “Even though it rained, it was absolutely perfect.

“It felt like there was nothing to stress about.

“Everything went to plan, even though the weather wasn’t great.

“Because it had rained so much, by the end of the night there was actually slugs and caterpillars on my train.”

Guests were greeted to strawberry daiquiris and an assortment of canapes which included: mini fish and chip, black pudding sausage rolls and mini nachos.

The couple’s two daughters, Mila, four, and Luna, two, were flower girls alongside Mrs Robinson’s two best friends and sister who were bridesmaids.

For their honeymoon, the couple jetted off to New York for a romantic getaway.
