- Wedding: December 2016
So my So proposed on Christmas day and it was the best ever as it was at home in the morning and private. We had opened our presents together and I had just finished tidying up all the wrapping paper and he hands me a picture, on the back it said that my treasure hunt had begun. I knew this was it when he handed me the photo! As soon as I read that I said ‘oh my God!’ and struggled to not say are you going to propose. Luckily the gifts were all in pretty obvious places so I didn’t have to climb anything! With each gift he left another photo of the location and a cryptic message on each one but he had also laid out 4 pictures of us two together so I was able to take my time and appreciate the whole moment with each gift as he had a total of 10 hidden around the house clue was in the drink cupboard and the 6th clue said something about cracking open the Champagne which was really obvious but I didn’t want to say anything to ruin all of his hard work! After the I found the 10th one it led me all the way back upstairs to our bedroom and nothing was there. So I’m looking around thinking don’t tell me he’s hidden it under the bed! I turn around to find he’s stood behind me, then he takes my hand and starts to tell me how much he loves me and how he knew he loved me on the third date and I can see he’s going a bit pink lol, at his point he’s squeezing the life out of my hand but I don’t mind! So I keep quiet and just try to listen without interupting him and then he pulls the box out of his pocket and asked me to marry him and then gets on one knee really quickly which was so sweet, I then say ”of course I will marry you” and we smooch and hug lol then he put the ring on! At this point I just can’t believe it as it was so sweet and honest and makes me smile everytime I think about it So we then go downstairs to have a celebratory cup of tea as thats how we roll lol! Now I have had a ring in my handbag for agesssssss to give to him as I knew he was going to ask and I really wanted him to have something shiny to look at too I then told him that I also have gift for him and that because I knew he was going to be buying me such an expensive gift I also wanted to give him something to show I love him too and that he doesn’t have to wear it on his finger if he doesn’t want to and can always put it on his chain. At the time it didn’t fit so it went on his chain but now he can get it on (his finger swell) he wears it on his right hand and thankfully doesn’t think its stupid So that is my proposal story from what I can remember as even though I really tried to remember everything I was still overwhelmed by the whole thing!
