AN 18-YR-OLD BOY AND 20-YR-OLD GIRL RECENTLY GOT MARRIED AFTER MEETING ON SNAPCHAT AND DATING FOR ONE YEAR ON THE MESSAGING APP.
NATHAN TREWEEK AND HIS NEW WIFE GABRIELLE ARE BELIEVED TO BE THE FIRST SNAPCHAT MARRIED COUPLE AFTER TYING THE KNOT IN 2015.
The couple had a long-distance relationship for one year, constantly exchanging messages with each other. The pair started talking when Gabrielle first made contact with Nathan after coming across each other’s usernames through humour website Ticklr in June 2014.
“The first snap ever was from myself to him, and it said ‘Hello fellow Ticklr!’
“It was just a black picture though, we were both quite cautious as to what we sent when we first met as anyone should be when meeting new people.
“His first message was an actual picture of himself sitting up in bed as it was very early and I had woken him up. He responded in the same way saying ‘hello fellow Ticklr!”, Cake decorator Gabrielle said.
THEY BEGAN TALKING AFTER THAT AND STARTED DATING LATER. GRAPHIC DESIGNER, NATHAN THEN PROPOSED TO HIS GIRLFRIEND ON SKYPE, THOUGH HE HADN’T MET HER IN REAL LIFE.
The couple made it official on September 17 at Gabrielle’s late grandmother’s home in Washington.
“I found her stunning, and fell in love with her then and there – though I still don’t really believe in love at first sight.
“I remember noticing she was incredibly small. I knew her height – 5ft 4 – but being able to actually see and feel it made it real,” Nathan spoke of the first time they met, adding that his parents aren’t really supporting the union and are doubting the future of their marriage.
