After asking her out via Facebook three times, his persistence paid off – Anton finally said yes.

And ten months later, she said yes again – after he proposed immediately after finishing the 19.7km Rottnest Channel Swim for charity (yep, he had the diamond ring strapped to his ankle the whole time. Now that’s commitment).

Louise admitted that she was originally quite hesitant to meet up with her “stalker” – but she was won over by Paul’s politeness when he began his Facebook messages with “Dear Louise.”

The loved-up couple appeared on Today this morning where they shared snaps from their recent wedding on Rottnest Island.

Louise and Paul are now spending time with Paul’s three children who are visiting Australia from England. They plan on honeymooning later in the year.
