Jess Shears and Dom Lever announce engagement 3 months after meeting on Love Island
Love Island couple Jessica Shears and Dominic Lever have announced they are engaged.
After hitting things off on ITV2 reality series Love Island three months ago, Dom and Jess’ relationship has pretty much moved at 100 miles per hour. Not only have the pair gotten matching tattoos and bought a house together, but now the even bigger news of their engagement has been announced.
Speaking to OK! Magazine, the lovebirds unveiled all of the juicy details about the proposal. Jess recalled: “It happened the night before the TV Choice Awards [on September 4]. We were staying in a lovely apartment in London.
“Dom had filled it with flowers and had got us a bottle of champagne. I was doing a SnapChat video saying how lucky I felt when he called me out onto the terrace. I was grinning like a Cheshire Cat when Dom got down on one knee – he said afterwards that he has never seen me smile like that!”
Dom was adamant he and Jess are not rushing their relationship, insisting marriage just feels “right”.
“Before I went on Love Island I would have judged someone for proposing this quickly, but spending so much time together in the villa really cemented my feelings for Jess,” he added.
“After the first week of being back in the UK I knew I was going to marry her. As far as I’m concerned, when you know something is right, why wait?”
Jess continued: “I can see why people would say we’re rushing into things but it feels like I’ve known Dom a lifetime.”
When asked what they had planned for the big day, Jess revealed: “We’d like to do it abroad, either in the south of France or somewhere in Greece like Santorini. We don’t want a big wedding, I only want our close family and friends there because, to me, that is what your wedding day is all about.’
