Big Issue vendor Richardson met Osborne in their hometown of Bristol in November 2013.

Begging on the street at the time, he asked passerby Osborne if she could spare him any change.

But after she broke down in tears because she couldn't afford her electricity, Richardson ended up giving her 50p.

« It was just before Christmas and she burst into tears. She didn't have quite enough to put the lights on over Christmas, so I gave her enough to put the lights on, » Richardson told the BBC.

Shortly after Richardson became a vendor for The Big Issue and they struck up a friendship as Osborne would regularly pass his spot.

« We began talking to each other every few weeks as she walked by. At first it was trivial stuff, but then we began sharing a lot and becoming quite close, » Richardson told the Bristol Post.

When she learned that he was facing sleeping on the streets after the squat he was staying at was boarded up, she offered him the spare room in her house.

« When I went to stay with her we fell for each other, » Richardson said.

In November last year, the couple were engaged.

« I didn't think anyone could possibly be romantically interested in someone who lived in a garage. Everything has changed, » Richardson told the Post at the time.

« Essentially I've gone from being a tramp living in a garage, to living indoors with an amazing woman.

« I have never felt so intensely and deeply about anything before in my life. It's amazing. »
