Introducing the newly engaged Tate & Ashleigh! When Ashleigh was 10 years old her family moved to Tamworth and lived next door to Tate and his father for a few years. They both attended the same primary and high schools but didn’t pay much attention to each other as he was very close friends with Ashleigh’s sister. In 2009, Tate eventually acquired Ashleigh’s mobile number when she was 17. They both fell in love and have been inseparable ever since! The couple have 3 “fur babies” together, two chihuahuas; Ruby & Chip, and a mastiff cross named Millie. They often take all three pups to dog friendly Redhead Beach. One Saturday morning Tate woke Ashleigh up with the Ute all packed wanting to head over to the beach with Ashleigh’s brother and his partner in tow. Ashleigh said “We got bogged a fair few times, nothing was going right, and for some reason Tate wasn’t really talking to me. It didn’t seem like it was going to be a great day”. But Ashleigh had no idea what was coming! After setting the cars up, Tate asked Ashleigh to check to new dog tags he had bought for their puppies. “I told him I’d already seen them, in a moody tone as he wasn’t talking to me much all day”. Tate asked her to check again, and when Ashleigh did she noticed their names engraved with the message “Will you marry my Dad?”. Ashleigh was thrilled and said yes immediately! Congratulations to the happy couple!
