A Bromley man surprised his wife on the 32nd anniversary of the night they met by taking her to the same nightclub on Widmore Road where their story began in 1986.
Greg and Belinda Adams met in Bibas nightclub and until this month had never been back there.
Club owner Michael met them at the door on Saturday, August 4 and took them on a tour of the club before they enjoyed drinks at the cocktail bar, where the couple heard about the history of the club.
“The club looked and felt fantastic,” said Greg.
“It seemed like only yesterday that I asked Belinda to dance with me. Who could have known this dance would lead to six wonderful children and six even more wonderful grandchildren?”
The club photographer captured a photograph of the two in the exact same spot where they fell in love 32 years earlier.
Greg added: “We lived and worked in Dubai for nearly eight years and life hasn’t stood still.
“It hasn’t all been plain sailing – we recently lost our baby grandson in a car accident caused by a pot hold in Sevenoaks which has been agony and life-changing for the whole family.
“Through all this we have remained madly in love, so I thought it was time to revisit the place where it all began so long ago while we still can.”
The couple added that they were happy the club hadn’t changed beyond recognition: “It was warmer, more modern and cosy but retains its good-feeling vibe,” said Greg.
“Thanks to my lovely wife, Michael and all the staff at the club who were so welcoming, friendly and professional.
“Now we plan to return with all the kids for a family night out clubbing just like when we lived in Dubai.”
