Sara Eden success stories…

At Sara Eden the true measure of success is how many of the couples that we introduce then go on to forming loving, long-term relationships.
On these pages we present a small selection of our success stories and weddings over the last 30 years.

Robert and Vanessa update.

Dear Karen and all at Sara Eden

Robert and I have just celebrated our birthdays with a fabulous joint party at the Ivy last Saturday. This, together with recommending my good friend Sophie to your agency prompted me to give you an update on our life together.

This year we celebrate 13 blissfully happy years of marriage. When I walked through your door back in 2005 I could never have imagined how my life would change – I can honestly say Sara Eden made our dreams come true…..

I have enclosed some recent photographs for you to put on your website, Robert and I at Ascot last year, with our girls and our beautiful girls, myself and the dogs.

With love and best wishes

Dear Karen and Sara Eden staff,

Well, where do we start?! For us, it couldn’t have been better! The wonderful emotions are clearer than the words to describe them, a few that continue to recur in the conversation with family and friends are ‘magical’, ‘fairy-tale’, ‘dream come true’, ‘romantic’ … and many more. The setting at the castle, the weather and company were all so perfect and the music and readings, which we had so carefully chosen, were all performed so beautifully and well beyond our expectations.

We now eagerly await the DVD to recapture all those cherished moments, both funny and tearful.

Thank you very much for the Newbridge Silverware, it was so kind of you. Thank you also for so much more …. our introduction through Sara Eden. None of this would have been possible without you. As promised we will send you a photograph and update you through the next couple of months.

Many thanks and once again, thank you more making our dreams come true.

Kind regards as always,

Robert and Net x

Andrew & Cynthia

Dear Karen

I wanted to thank you again for making my dearest wish a reality. Alex is now 14 and Emily is turning 13.  I guess we have you to thank for two teenagers in the house.

Andrew and I just celebrated our 15th anniversary and I still pinch myself when I see photos of the four of us.

As you know, Andrew and I both lived in Moscow at the same time and he even took over my job and desk after I left.  The expat community was so small there so it is still extraordinary that it took Sara Eden to bring us together — Sara Eden AND a decision on both of our parts to stop leaving our futures to fate.

I always tell people when I am evangelising about you that yours was the agency that put me in the driving seat as I got to choose the next steps. There was no algorithm and in those days “swiping” wasn’t a thing.

Your method always felt like it was opening my social circle out to meeting more eligible men than I would have been introduced to by my own friends and colleagues.  They all felt pre-screened and were largely my type of people as we shared interests and outlooks.

Each of my dates was lovely and I would have been thrilled to have my best friend go out with any of them…as you know there was no ‘Sparke’ until I met Andrew and the rest is history.

Hope you keep doing what you are doing for a long time to come.  It is smart, efficient and it works!!!

Dear Karen and Debbie

We are so pleased to be writing this letter to thank you for introducing us. Without Sara Eden we would have never met.
An invitation to our wedding on the 6th September will be in the post as soon as everything is finalised. We both really enjoyed our membership with Sara Eden, it was friendly, professional and basically fun and last but not least successful!
We are now a Sara Eden statistic!

Thank you a million times.

Love Andrew and Cynthia

Useful tips for your first date

A good starting point is the other person. Ask them about their family, their work, interests and how they see themselves in the future but don’t make it sound like an interrogation! For a successful long term relationship similar goals and aspirations are a must. Be yourself, don’t try to be someone you are not. If you are nervous be honest and say you are nervous. Don’t talk endlessly about your ex – believe it or not this is one of the most common reasons for not getting a second date. Politics and religion are a big NO NO!

Smile! Everyone is attracted to a smile – so smile and enjoy your date. Turn off your phone and for goodness sake don’t text or tweet during your date.

Choose a mutually convenient venue, a weekend lunchtime is good and a snack is better than a large meal. Don’t go somewhere too noisy – the whole idea of a first date is to talk to each other and find out about each other and you can’t do that with loud noises in the background.

Wear something you feel comfortable in. Nothing too tight or revealing and avoid the extremes of your wardrobe too. Business suits are a not good unless you have just come from the office. A splash of colour is good – wearing black only can make you look dull.
