It all started back in 2012, when Victoria, a book nerd, decided to accept a friend’s dare to invite her Twitter crush, Jonathan, the man behind the nerdy tweets from Waterstones Oxford Street that had caught her fancy, on a date.

“It took a couple of months – Jonathan ignored my first tweet but the second had a typo and he picked up on that,” Victoria said.

After a first date at a cocktail bar, the couple embarked on a relationship and, two-and-a-half years on, Mr O’Brien proposed at their London flat.

On July 17, Victoria delighted her Twitter followers by tweeting the famous line from Jane Eyre, ‘Reader, I married him’, along with a photo taken of her and Jonathan at their wedding and her original message in 2012 declaring her love for her now-husband.

‘We still can’t believe we’ve ended up married,’ Victoria said.
