Chief Cupids

Our Story

Hi, we’re Natasha and Russell, Chief Cupids at Romantic Gestures.

Our relationship began by chance and grew into a friendship filled with the love and respect our marriage now thrives on.

I am Natasha, and together with my husband Russell, our aim is to share what we have learnt along the way about relationships. Since meeting several years ago we continue to enjoy regular ‘Date’ nights; which nurture the bond between us along our journey of life.

By understanding how to incorporate romance into our relationships we are able to take back some precious moments to appreciate all that we have. Russell and I will share with you tips and recommendations on activities you can do day to day and also how you too can have regular ‘Date’ nights to ensure that your relationship lasts the distance. These tips come from personal experience and have formed the basis of our relationship.

Sadly, in today’s busy world, we often spell L O V E with 4 very different letters: T I M E.

With time being of the essence, when couples make ‘time’ to celebrate their connection, expectations can (and should) be high. Love can be hard won, and often too easily lost; so we really need to nurture the most special relationships in our lives. Romantic Gestures sole aim is to ensure that you and your sweetheart’s romantic expectations are completely fulfilled.

Whether you are in love, or starting to fall in love, our Romantic Gifts, Romantic Getaways, Marriage Proposal Packages, Wedding Consultation, Date Night Packages or Gift Vouchers will leave you with romantic memories you will treasure for years to come.

Romantic Gestures provides the gifts, getaways and support to help you turn each precious moment you spend with your sweetheart into the most amazing it can possibly be. Sign up to receive our Regular Reap the Romantic Rewards guide and we will send you a copy of ‘An Ocean Between Us’ FREE to say thanks. Enter your details in the boxes at the top of our home page or in the area in the bottom right hand corner of the footer.

Celebrating Love for a Lifetime,

Natasha and Russell.
