Fiona and Paul have been together for over a decade. 

Speaking about the wedding plans to VIP magazine last month, Paul said, “Fiona is definitely more prepared. There’s no question, anything that has been lacklustre in the preparation has been because I was supposed to do it. She has been brilliant, and I’m just kind of taking her guidance.”
