Hi, I hope I’m posting this in the right place!!
I am a bit of a lurker if I’m honest – and today my lovely lovely lovely LOVELY boyfriend proposed!!
I am a hopeless romantic who lives in the sea side university town of Bangor in North Wales, I work at Treborth botanical gardens, my fiance is a primary school teacher ( I suppose that’s elementary school to all you Americans 😛 ) he teaches 6-7 year olds.
We are both bilingual – we speak both Welsh and English and our wedding will hopefully be in St Cristiolus’s church, which is in Anglesea, with any luck this summer, and the service will be in Welsh!!
Anyway – I shan’t bore you with the details, I just hope you can all help me through my future wedding quandaries!!

haha – details!! it’s wasn’t very big or extravagant, but it was lovely and sweet and romantic! We went out for fish and chips and ate them walking down the pier! Then when we’d finished we stopped and sat down on a bench and then he knelt down and said “Nina Ellyn Wilson, I know that I drive you mad, and I know that I cant cook, and I know I’ll never be rich. Bu
t i love you, Will you do me the dubious honour of becoming my wife!”
and they say romance is dead!!!
We’ve been courting for 7 years now so it’s about bloody time by my reckoning!
And here is my ring: quite possibly THE most hideous my hand has ever looked, not that I take photographs of it that often! The ring was his grandmothers so it’s not a conventional engagement ring but I like it!
