A Glenrothes woman who found true love thanks to radio station Forth One’s dating site is set to get married at St Paul’s Church in the town.
Happy couple Kathryn Wighton and Colin Dow met and found love online through the radio station’s dating website and have set the date to tie the knot on August 17, 2013.
Virtual newcomers to online dating, Kathryn from Glenrothes and Colin from Aberlady, clicked immediately when they spotted each other’s profiles on the site. The couple had been in touch for a month and after meeting for the first time on May 8, 2010, they quickly fell in love.
A little over a year later, on the first of July 2011, Colin popped the big question and asked Kathryn to marry him. It was a traditional engagement with Colin asking Kathryn’s father’s permission before getting down on one knee to propose.
Kathryn, who works as a pupil support assistant and customer advisor Colin, will be married at St. Paul’s Church in Glenrothes. Kathryn’s friend, a priest from another church, has volunteered to perform the ceremony for the happy couple.
Kathryn said: “I was so stunned when Colin proposed that it took me some time to actually answer. We’re both absolutely thrilled and excited to be getting married and can’t thank Forth One Dating enough for matching us up.
“Neither of us dreamt in a million years we would have met our soul mates online, but in this day and age anything is possible.”
Kathryn and Colin’s advice to those hesitant to step into the online dating world is “just go for it!”.
Colin said: “I would encourage anyone looking for love and that perfect match to try out online dating. It worked out perfectly for Kathryn and I and we can’t wait to get married. Forth One Dating will definitely be mentioned in the wedding toast.”
Online dating is increasingly becoming the new way to meet people.
Cathy Kirk, Station Director at Forth One, said: “We’re so pleased that Forth One Dating has brought together such a wonderful couple. It just goes to prove that our compatibility matches really work and that we put people together who are suited to each other.”
