- Wedding: June 2013
I’m pretty new here and reading lots of engagement stories and wanted to share mine 🙂
Me and my fiancee were on holiday in Paris for my 22nd birthday. We were going to be there for 2 full days. Disneyland Paris on day one and Paris city on day 2. I had kind of been expecting a proposal because we had discussed getting married a lot. But he always said he’d never do it in Paris because too many people do, so I wasn’t getting my hopes up.
On the first day we went out in Disneyland Paris and watched the fireworks and parade and went back to our hotel. I got really sick overnight and spent the whole next day in bed with food poisioning. He looked after me all day.
The next day we were due to fly back home and I was feeling a lot better, we went for a walk in the grounds of the hotel. It was a beautiful white castle hotel, with a lake. We were walking down by the lake and sat on a little bench. We were just talking and he said something along the lines of ”You know yesterday I said how I would always look after you…” And got down on one knee. I burst into tears and couldn’t even say yes haha My hand was shaking when he put the ring on.
It turns out he was going to propose on my birthday in the city but couldn’t do it then as I was so ill. But I’m glad he did it how he did because it made it a bit different and special. I couldn’t have asked for anything better 🙂
