Cherry Seaborn attended the same high school as Ed in Suffolk and was friends since the age of 11. Ed and Cherry remained friends for a long time though he had a crush on her but didn’t proceed with his feelings as she was in a relationship at that time.

Cherry Seaborn studies Science at Durham University while Sheeran moved away to pursue a career in music.

After completing her graduation from Durham University, she took her career a step forward and persuade a master’s degree in management studies at Duke University. 

In a conversation in the newspaper she said, “ever since I was in high school, I’ve always wanted to study in the United States, I looked into different schools that were good academically and also at hockey, and Duke was one that really jumped out of me”. 

Cherry Seaborn’s Career

Seaborn was clear in her head and made the right use of her bachelor’s and master’s degrees into making a promising career out of it.

Cherry began her first job working on Wall Street for accounting firm Delloite. She then moved back to London to continue her love story with Ed Sheeran.

The Shape Of Sheeran And Seaborn’s Love

Cherry Seaborn and Ed Sheeran first met at Thomas Hills High School in Framlingham, Suffolk, England. 

Cherry and Ed have known each other since childhood but did not involve in a romantic relationship until 2015. The couple reconnected with each other in New York when Sheeran was touring.

Apparently, their first date was at Taylor Swift’s 4th of July party in Rhode island in 2015. 

He shared this memory in an interview with People saying,

“ I went on tour again and then I went to Taylor’s 4th of July party. We were texting (Cherry Seaborn) and she was like, I am in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party and I was like, So am I. “I kinda said to Taylor, Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?” rest is history.

A year after his break he shared this story with a platform, “the catalyst of taking a year off was also the fact that my partner quit her job in New York which she now got back in London which is so cool.
