Susi Welland, 50, and Andy Williams, 52, first met in the wine aisle of the Llandudno supermarket in Wales in July 2012 sparking a romance that would result in marriage, according to a report in The Daily Post.

Electrician Andy said he was usually a beer drinker but had made a last minute dash to the wine aisle, after his son told him to stock up on bottles of red and white.

Andy told the paper: “We started talking. I said I was going through a divorce, and Susi said she was too.”

“We just clicked straight away and we made each other laugh. She’s got a good sense of humour and so have I.

“We couldn’t stop talking and exchanged phone numbers before we left the store.”

Andy proposed while on a romantic gondola ride in Venice, and this June the pair will marry.

Susi told the paper: “I was at my scruffiest in my jeans, t-shirt and flip-flops, covered in dust from getting books out for the fair, but I was running late so had no chance to make myself presentable.”

“We clocked eyes and said hello. I walked a bit further up the aisle to the three for £10 wine offer. A couple were coming down the aisle who knew him and asked after his wife. I was eavesdropping, so I heard him say they were no longer together.

“According to Andy it was an instant attraction. We got engaged in September 2013 on a gondola ride in Venice and we’re getting married this June.

“It all seems a bit quick but you can’t plan these things, can you? Who would have thought you could find love down the aisle of your local supermarket!”

Andy added: “I’m so glad I walked into Asda that Friday evening.”
