There are many wild and wonderful traditions surrounding St Valentine, the Patron Saint of love and lovers. One is that the first man an unmarried woman saw on 14th February, would be her future husband. Or if a woman saw a robin flying overhead on Valentine’s Day, she would marry a sailor, if she saw a sparrow, she would marry a poor man and be very happy. If she saw a goldfinch, she would marry a rich man…
Its rare to see a young women scanning the skies on the look-out for goldfinches or robins in twentyfirst century Britain. The day and traditions have morphed into one of romance; candlelit dinners, red roses and romantic cards and most important of all…wedding proposals. It is when the proposal has been accepted and the engagement begins, that we can help.
