When Emma White, from Brighton, went to Paris in June 2016 she did not realise that her life was going to change forever. Having moved to Wales to be with her boyfriend, Darren Crandon, from Risca, the couple embarked on an incredible journey to France to be part of the European Championships held there this summer.
Darren and Emma hit the world headlines in June 2016 with major social media viral sites such as “The Lad Bible” picking up on the story which proved to be the romantic edge of the Euro’s. You can watch the proposal here
Darren had planned to do the proposal in Paris, but on doing so I don’t think he expected how widespread this was going to go. They have recently done interviews for the BBC, Sky Sports News as well as major worldwide network tv companies.
This was a beautiful story of how Wales & England rivalry was thrown aside and the couple become one. Darren and Emma were wearing their international football shirts while this proposal happened and this is what gripped the nation. A love tale of two beautiful people coming together.
The popular alcoholic beverage and tournament sponsor, Carlsberg, paid for the couple to go to the final of Euro 2016 to watch Portugal lift the trophy in France.
This story has really been a focal point of the summer but the story isn’t over yet….its just the beginning of their lives together.
I wish them all the best for their future.
