Olympia resident Hope Nadine Marie Moser is engaged to Joshua Philip Roythorne, originally from Derby, England. The couple met at Black Lake Bible Camp in 2016.
“Shortly after we began dating at the end of the summer, we both knew quickly that we wanted to get married,” says Hope. Josh asked Hope to marry him on February 7, 2017 and they started the wedding planning process and the visa process to move Josh permanently to America.
Hope was born in Redding, California where she spent the first five years of her life before moving to Olympia. She attended Evergreen Christian School, Tumwater High School and is currently enrolled at Grand Canyon University. Her mother is Shannon Marie Moser and her grandparents are Bob and Colleen Moser.
Josh was born and raised in Derby, England, living in a few towns in the county throughout his life. He attended Smalley Primary School and Heanor Gate and John Flamsteed Secondary School. His parents are Clifford Roythorne and Davina Brooks.
The couple appreciates the photography of Kristina Wunsch, owner of Poppi Photography, who photographed their engagement photos in Seabrook, a place close to their hearts. “Kristina brought our story to life in the photos she took,” says Hope. “She’s amazing behind the camera and made us feel incredible in front of the camera. Kristina has become a friend to us throughout this process and we could not be happier that she will be documenting once of the biggest moments of our life journey together.”
The Moser-Roythorne wedding will be a quaint family wedding at the end of spring. The couple is planning to wed on Puget Sound at a family friend’s home and have the reception in the neighborhood park on Steamboat Island. It will be a casual barbecue party filled with dancing, cotton candy, and picnic blankets. “We are very similar at heart with the idea of a quiet, cute ceremony with our very closed loved ones to celebrate the union of our lives under God,” says Josh.
