- Wedding: February 2015
Im walking on a cloud at the moment and thought id add to all the amazing proposal storys bee’s share here and tell how my beautiful fiance (still can’t get used to that one!) proposed to me on Friday! =)
Firstly ill let you know we chose the ring about 12 months ago and i know hes had the ring for at least 6 months but was clueless as to when he would propose
About 3 months ago FI and i were trying to decide on the perfect getaway to celebrate both our birthdays ( which are two weeks apart) and after much debate we decided to be spontanious and quickly booked a mystery holiday. Soon after we got a confirmation email that simply stated “Sydney to mystery destination” and that we would recieve an email as to where we were going and time of flights etc “up til 2 days in advance” and FI stated he wanted to suprise me at the airport where we were off to and that was that!
Fast forward to last Tuesday and before we knew it we were off to the airport. i was convinced the ring was not in the bag nor on him as we had packed and repacked the suitcase numerous times to fit all our luggage in (well mostly mine!) and there was no unsual behaviour on his behalf. so i simply scratched the idea that he be proposing (ok ill admit i was slightly disappointed)
Anyway after a dramatic stressful trip to the airport because of unsuspected traffic due to road closures, road works AND a car accident we made it to the airport with literally 5 mins to take off, (thankfully we were rushed through!!) FI announces that we were off to the Great Barrier Reef staying in a ocean veiw suite!!
Once we finally got there we spent our days relaxing, shopping, catching up with an old friend and we booked a few touristy activities including an outter Reef trip where we drove an hour north and took an hour and half boat trip to the far point on the Great Barrier Reef which FI was particularly excited about! at this point the thought didnt really even cross my mind as nothing seemed out of the ordinary.
Friday came along (which was also my birthday) and we were off on this much anticipated boat trip! (FI is very adventurous) once we arrived at, well nothing but a pontoon floating in the middle of the ocean, we decided to go snorkling and look at all the beautiful coral reef and wildlife.. unfortunately i swallowed a heap of water and wanted to get out of the water and catch my breathe but FI insisted ” just stay here ive gotta go get you another birthday present” at this point all i could think was “what on earth could he possibly give me in the middle of the ocean with absolutely nothing around us but water!!’ AND i certainly did NOT think anyone in their right mind would risk dropping anything let alone an ERING to the bottom of the ocean!! lol but about 5 minutes later i heared my name called out from afar and as i turned around i could just see a sparkle from beneath the crystal clear water! (yes he did in fact take a ring, tied to his board shorts in the ocean to propose!!!!!) i screamed, partly in disbelief and mostly with excitement and shock!! and after about 5 minutes of crying, laughing and lots of cuddles and kisses he asked me simply if i would spend the rest of my life with him and do him the honor of being his wife!!
it was officially the most amazing moment and i know most of you would wonder how i didnt see some signs and looking back i can now see some signals i could of picked up on but i didnt. he totally caught me off guard. it was an amazing moment and im floating on a cloud and cant wait to marry my best friend and love of my life!!
