"It was a trip that his family thought would only last a couple of weeks," Sophie tells us. "We both attended a cocktail tasting night through work and it was there that we got chatting. This was followed by a Facebook friend request and the rest, as they say, is history! "The couple became engaged underneath the washing line at Travis's parents' house on a trip to Australia! "He assures me that he planned to propose a few months later when we were going to be in New Zealand but he lost his nerve and just asked me sooner!" Sophie tells us.
