- Wedding: May 2014
I have a fiancé!!!!!! We just got back from nearly 2 weeks in the Caribbean and we are engaged!!! I’m soooooo happy and relieved that it happened!!
So the story, on our first night in our super-secluded cottage on a practically deserted beach, my then Boyfriend or Best Friend suggested we catch the sunset (this wasnt completely unusual, he’s always been a sucker for a sunset). He had just returned from snorkelling so he popped inside our cottage to get changed. I could hear a number of zips being opened and closed, more than would be normal for just shorts and a tshirt. He appeared outside a few minutes later and I noticed a strange bulge in his pocket , not box shaped. He sat down and put his arm around me and I noticed he was starting to shake which just told me ‘its about to happen’. Cue butterflies (I’m getting them again just writing this!) and then he starts talking about how we’ve been together a while and we’ve had our ups and downs (in my head I was screaming ‘this is it! Remember EVERYTHING!’ Then of course I totally blanked out and started crying) then he was down on one knee asking me to marry him!! I don’t even remember saying yes or him putting the ring on my finger! I do remember that he produced this small trinket box that he’d bought 5 years ago when we were doing LDR that I jokingly suggested it would make a great box to hide a ring in. He never gave it to me and I forgot about it, but there it was! With a ring in it! He was struggling to get the ring out though because he was shaking so much!!! I remember seeing the ring for the first time and was absolutely blown away. He had listened to EVERYTHING I’d ever said about my dream ring! it was the most perfect proposal and I was just in awe that he’d gone to so much trouble-he’d checked google earth to see where the sun would set, he had practised the speech for weeks and the trinket box was just-wow. Anyway once my brain had re-materialised I was sat staring at the most beautiful ring and in the arms of my future husband. I love him so much!!
The ring-it’s a fancy light yellow, 1.23ct, the cut is somewhere between a princess and cushion cut with pave diamonds in the shank. It’s 18ct gold basket and platinum ring. The colour is beautiful, it changes from a light yellow in direct sunshine to a bright yellow. It’s soooo sparkly!! I catch myself just staring at it. Ive taken a lot of photos of it on our proper camera but for now I’ve just got this one from my phone.
AAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHHHHH We’re engaged!!!! I have a fiancé!!
