Isle of Wight speed dating couple to get married

A couple who met on an Isle of Wight holiday on a speed dating walk that was held on the island are to be married, three years after their first encounter.

Mike Edwards and June Haskell got together at the Isle of Wight Walking Festival in October 2008 and hit it off straight away.

Mr Edwards stated that he had hoped to meet someone on the speed dating walk - which is one of the most popular treks of the event each year - but did not expect to get a fiance out of it.

He said: "We really enjoyed each other's company and are really happy."

The organisers of the Isle of Wight Walking Festival added that they wanted to offer their congratulations to the happy couple.

Ramblers may be encouraged to head to the Isle of Wight for a holiday following the news, with the Autumn Walking Weekend being held on the island from October 21st to 24th 2011.
