Jake Dawes and Amanda Simmons will be celebrating their seventh Valentine’s Day and the first as a married couple today.
The couple met at the Mulga in 2013 and were married in the city last year.
When asked what their most romantic memory of the other was, both cited their engagement as a particularly strong one.
“It was on the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town,” said Jake.
“We mutually proposed so both of us knew what was happening,” added Amanda. Another highlight, they said, was a surprise trip Jake organised for her.
“There was a surprise trip to Paris for Amanda’s birthday,” said Jake. “We got the Eurostar train, stayed at a nice hotel, went to a couple of nice restaurants, to Versailles Palace and also to the French Open.”
Asked if they had any special plans today, they said they were most likely going to have a quiet night at home with a bottle of champagne.
