THIS month Hart Biologicals will be celebrating a very special love story, which began within its very own headquarters.
Keighley Campbell and Adam Larkin met in 2011 when they both worked as R&D Scientists for the company.
Initially beginning as good friends, the couple began dating. Whilst Adam moved onto another position within the oil and gas industry, Keighley went on to become Head of Research and Development for Hart Biologicals.
Keighley said: “We had always got on really well and there was always a little rumour that Adam had a bit of a crush, but I never thought anything of it until he asked me on a date.
“That was in September and by December we decided to attend the Christmas party as a couple.
“We had always kept everything professional, so I think it may have been a bit of a shock to a few members of staff.”
Soon after Adam surprised Keighley by popping the question.
Keighley added: “It was really the perfect proposal. When I was younger my dad tragically passed away in a road traffic accident and we have a memorial bench for him at the bottom of the road.”
“When Adam suggested we go for a walk, I didn’t think anything of it until we reached the bench and he got down on one knee.”
“It was almost like he was asking my dad’s permission while asking me at the same time. It was so thoughtful and romantic.”
“Obviously I said yes, although I do think I kept him in suspense, I was so overwhelmed.”
Adam and Keighley will be tying the knot on the 26th September at St Michael’s and All Angels Church, moving on to The Morritt Country House for further celebrations.
The Hart Biologicals’ team will be attending the festivities, but one thing which remains under wraps will be the couple’s wedding song.
Keighley added: “We’ve been quite open about everything which will be happening on the day, but we wanted to give our guests a bit of a surprise.
“I’m definitely past the nervous stage, I’m just really excited and can’t believe it’s so close.”
Look out for our update on the wedding, coming early October.
