Operation Lovebird.

14 February, 2020

When Dominick contacted the Expo a few years ago to enlist our help in "Operation Lovebird" we were surprised and delighted to be part of his plan:

To arrive at the UK Games Expo and ask his girlfriend Holly to marry him.

After walking into the Hilton Hotel, Holly was distracted by our Volunteers and Cosplayers, while Dominick prepared to pop the question.

Holly said yes, to much cheering from the assembled Expo crowd.

Dominick wrote to us to say that things have now come full circle.

"After all these years, we are officially MARRIED!

We had a great day mixing the traditional with fantasy (I spoke my vows in Elvish).

Everyone had a great time and it rained at all the right times".

Looking dapper and elegant, with swords to cut the cake and beautiful, but comfy and practical wedding trainers, this couple could not have looked happier.

It's wonderful to see such a terrific story unfold and have a happy ending.

The UK Games Expo would like to wish Mr. and Mrs. Allen all the very best of luck and a wonderful marriage.
