Yesterday at The Winehouse in Queenstown, New Zealand, former Miss Intercontinental Karen Gallman marked a milestone in her beautiful life when she finally tied the knot with the man of her dreams, Ian Garton, in an intimate wedding ceremony that saw the two of them sealing the union with a kiss. It was the culmination of a long relationship that stood the test of time in a way, as the groom patiently waited until his bride was set free from all her pageant commitments.
The two of them will now spend the rest of their lives as Mr & Mrs Ian Garton – and happily at that.
Congratulations to the both of you!
Karen and Ian last Valentine’s Day
