Our Wedding Jewellery Journey: Luke and Brooke French

Luke and Brooke French are both entrepreneurs who live and work in Tunbridge Wells, with a shared passion for creativity. Brooke manages a successful hairdressing business, while Luke is a personal trainer. He offers private, luxurious, and enjoyable training sessions for a range of clients aiming to achieve various goals, whether it be fat loss, strength gain, or simply improving their health and well-being.

Their Story

They met in their last few years of school when their schools’ lunch breaks coincided, allowing them both to venture out into the town for lunch. One day, Brooke plucked up the courage to initiate a conversation, and from that point on, the rest is history …

Why Walsh Bros were first choice for the engagement ring?

The choice of jeweller for the engagement ring came about while Luke was training a client who mentioned that Walsh Bros was a family run local business in the area, which spoke to Luke who prefers to support local, independent, professionally run companies.

Brooke had described her perfect ring to Luke, simple, classy, emerald cut rectangular diamond. In the shop Lexie knew exactly what he was looking for after describing it so well, he was drawn to the ring, which was an excellent choice, it is beautiful. See our engagement rings.

The Proposal

Luke hid the ring in a packet of biscuits, while Brooke was enjoying a wood fired hot tub on a Shepard’s Hut getaway.  He brought them to her and then proposed

How romantic!!!

Returning for their wedding rings

They returned to Walsh Bros for their wedding bands based on the service, the help, the professionalism and the perfect experience Luke had getting the engagement ring and they have said they will continue to use us for any jewellery they would like to purchase in the future. Find out more about our wedding service.

The couple tied the knot at the Gardens in Yalding on June 11th, the hottest day of the year. Reflecting on the day, Luke expressed, “It was such a special day that went by so quickly, but I had the absolute time of my life.”

But the excitement doesn’t end there, what a future ahead, with a baby girl on the way almost a year after the wedding!  We wish them all the very best – we can’t wait to meet her!

The couple expressed their gratitude to the team: “Walsh Bros is professional, friendly, and provides exceptional service. Lexie was amazing and immensely helpful with everything. She even gifted me a few woven bags from Walsh Bros, which we proudly use every day for work.”

We would like to thank them both for their support and for sharing their story.
