New Looker Love Stories

by Emma Menteath, Editorial Lead

With Valentine's Day right around the corner we decided to reach out to our very own New Lookers to hear about their personal love stories.

While stories like The Notebook or P.S I Love You have a special place in our hearts, stories of love that are actually true really tug at our heartstrings and these 9 romantic love stories from our New Lookers prove just that. They're more heartwarming than any rom-com you'll watch on Netflix this season.

1. Emma Reid, Store Superviser

How long have you been in a relationship?
My husband, Michael, and I have been together for nearly 6 years, and married for 3 and a half years.

How did you meet?
We met at a group night out celebrating my birthday, he was the friend of a friend I had met a few times before. We spent the whole night dancing and talking, and we haven’t stopped since.

What do you most admire about your partner?
We love that we could spend 24/7 together and never tire of each other’s company. He is a dedicated and strong man who always puts other needs before his own.

Important in any relationship is having trust in each other, even in the hard times. Being each other’s best friend, being someone you can confide in no matter what, tell anything and everything, too.

2. Holly May Wilder, Sales Assistant

How long have you been in a relationship?
Luke and I have been together for just over 8 years and have been engaged since December 2018. We were supposed to be a happily married couple in September 2020... but Covid got in our way 😅 and we have postponed until June 2021 (fingers crossed 🤞)

How did you meet?
Luke and I met in the second year of Sixth Form College in our hometown of Scarborough! We were in the same English Language class, where I sat directly in front of him. We didn't start our relationship straight away, but were good friends. We had a few days where we hung out together, unaware of how the other was feeling, until one of our mutual friends had their 18th birthday night out and we shared a kiss! The rest is history and we have been together ever since!

What do you most admire about your partner?
Where do I start?!
I admire how patient and amazing Luke is. At times, it takes a lot to put up with my crazy-silly moments and also when I'm having a down day.
He has been there for me through my highest and lowest moments; keeping me smiling and making me laugh when I'm not feeling mentally strong! He has always been that shoulder I go to and will continue to be. He is such an amazing person and makes me so proud to be his fianceé. I can't wait until I can FINALLY marry him in June (Covid permitting)!

How long have you been in a relationship?
Stuart and I have been together for 15 years.

How did you meet?
We met at school and have been dating since I was 14 years old.

What do you admire most about your partner?
The thing I admire the most about Stuart is how kind he is, not only to me and his patients but to everyone he meets. He is a true gentleman!

5. Hannah Glover, Sales Advisor

How long have you been in a relationship?
Adam and I have been together for just over 8 years and married for 16 months.

We met at a nightclub in Epping called 195, back in October 2012.

I would say how hard Adam works for our little family.

6. Lora Ungurs-Wood, Store Manager

Michelle and I have been together for 12 years and will have been married 5 years in June.

How did you meet?
We first met through New Look back in 2006. I was already working for New Look and Michelle joined and was being trained in the store I worked in.

What do you admire most about your partner?
That we share very similar values: loyalty, family and having fun.

7. Jo Roberts, Sales Advisor

How long have you been in a relationship?
My husband, Tony, and I have been together for 34 years and married for 30 years. We got married on my 25th birthday.

How did you met?
We met in a nightclub called Bogarts in Flintshire and the second date he took me home to meet his parents, I loved them and we got on great! They asked me to go away on their family holiday to Marbella, Spain and it was fabulous. 2 years later he took me back and we got engaged in our favourite restaurant over there.

8. Vicky Saunders, Sale Advisor

How long have you been in a relationship?
Mick and I have been together for 7 years in April and married for 3 years.

How did you met?
Mick used to work in motorcycle sales, I used to visit his shop quite a lot and we'd never had the guts to tell each other how we both felt but we fancied the pants off each other and before we knew it we were together and we couldn't of been happier.

What do you admire most about your partner?
We make each other laugh over the smallest things, we love spending time together and being courageous and trying things together we thought we'd never do. Marrying him was one of the best moments of my life.

9. Emily Stuart, Holding Deputy Manager

How long have you been in a relationship?
Abbey and I have been together for 3 and a half years.

How did you meet?
Funnily enough, we actually met working for New Look Merry Hill when we were both sales advisors! Abbey soon started her graphic design career not long after we got together so she wasn’t working for New Look very long. We were both working abroad at the same time, me in Ibiza and Abbey in America, before we both came back home and started working at New Look. If that doesn’t make you believe in fate I don’t know what will!

What do you admire most about your partner?
I love Abbey's passion for life! We are both keen travellers and we love exploring new places and fun things to do together! I love how she always puts her heart and soul into everything from her work and her friendships to even helping strangers, especially during the pandemic picking up shopping for vulnerable people. You won’t meet anyone with a kinder heart than Abbey. She is the love of my life.
