After the hectic business of wedding planning and the whirlwind of the big day, there’s perhaps nothing a pair of newlyweds look forward to more than the honeymoon. Relaxation, tropical cocktails and, of course, romance often abound on the first vacation a married couple takes together, after all. But not every honeymoon goes as planned.
And John Whitbread’s honeymoon was unusual in more ways than one. For a start, he didn’t meet the woman with whom he’d be honeymooning until he arrived at the airport with his luggage and passport in hand.
Prior to his unconventional vacation, though, Whitbread seemed like every other groom-to-be. During the 2014 Christmas period, moreover, he and his fiancée Amy were just six weeks away from their planned Valentine’s Day wedding and subsequent honeymoon. Then, however, Amy suddenly walked away from the relationship.
