Declaring her love, Steph told girlfriend Jenny: “From the moment I met you, I was in love.

“I know the future will always be uncertain and difficult, but one thing that I know I want for certain is for us to grow old together and to call you my wife.”


Steph then dropped down on one knee to present the ring.

After Jenny accepted the proposal, Welch jumped for joy as the crowd cheered.

Welch then shouted: “Jenny and Steph, congratulations.”

The band opened the second year of the Summer Sessions in the capital with two nights of incredible performances.
