Robbie Nicholson, our main IELTS practice tests writer, and Katarzyna (Kasia) Baliga, were married last weekend on 10th August at Sw. Marcina Church in Krakow. Following the marriage, the wedding party walked down Grodzka to Wawel castle and took a boat with champagne up and down the Vistula for a half hour before arriving at their reception at Manggha Japanese Museum, where they celebrated until late.
Kasia met Robbie in London in July 2008. Robbie, a cricket fanatic, was at Lord's cricket ground watching England versus South Africa and met Kasia whilst ordering a coffee. From there, the couple met regularly until Kasia took the plunge of going to Germany to be with Robbie. While in Germany, Kasia became a qualified teacher and worked with Robbie at Dresden International School.
Four years after their meeting, Robbie proposed in San Sebastian, Spain, one morning on a swimming platform. After an awkward moment while Robbie extricated the ring from his swimming shorts, the penny dropped and accepted the proposal after some shock and surprise!
Back now in Germany, Kasia is back at the school, while Robbie is working on ieltshelpnow.com's promotion and of course IELTS practice tests writing. He has already completed a further five IELTS listening tests and is now working on a further ten. Fifteen further IELTS practice tests listening module are planned to be released at Easter 2014.
