Date of proposal
How old were you both when you got engaged?
I was 24 and Marc was 23
How did your partner (or you) propose?
Marc proposed on the 1st night of our mini holiday to Paris up the Eiffel tower. He was a proper romantic and even got down on one knee.
Who did you share the news of your engagement with first?
We did not tell anyone until we got home 3 days later. It felt special only us knowing something that amazing and it also gave me time to get my head around it. On arriving home we went straight to Marc’s parents from the train station then onto my parents house.
Describe your ring.
18ct white gold ring, with a brilliant round diamond.
Did you help choose the ring?
No Marc chose it by himself and I love it
Will your partner wear an engagement ring as well?
No, although I bought Marc a ring as an extra Christmas gift (and to say thank you for our holiday) and took it away with us to give to him whilst we were there. So we say that’s his engagement ring.
Did you have an engagement party?
If so, where was it held?
Cupids country club
How many people were invited?
Did you have a particular theme for your party?
just lots of colours and fun
When do you plan to marry?
27th June 2009
What are you looking forward to the most about planning a wedding?
Watching everything we have planned together work well on the day and seeing our friends and family enjoying our special day.
