Haydyn and I had talked about for a while. We had bought the ring with the intention of getting engaged on Bonfire night - but Haydyn's sister got there before…

I was 30 (Now 31) and my Fiance is and was 39
I proposed to Fran
I took My Fiance to a night of Fine Dining at Michael Caines Restaurant and a night at the Abode Hotel in Manchester for New Years Eve Celebrations. After 4 and a half hours of the meal (dont ask!) we were quietly sat in a Booth in the Bar in the Abode Hotel and as the DJ and everyone counted down… I fumbled around in my pocket for the ring box (which had been poking me all night!)… and I turned to Fran and said, “Will you do the honour of spending the rest of your life with me? ‐ Will you Marry Me?”.. She said …”Errr… Go on then”!
Shared the news with the In‐Laws (Mum & Dad) and our best man ( her brother which is also my Best Friend) and … pretty much everyone on our phones! ‐ sending picture message of the ring!
1 Carat Twisted Trilogy Ring in 18ct White Gold
My Fiance twisted my arm as I had two rings picked ‐ this wasnt the contender…. but we chose the right one ‐ together!
I am getting the next best thing ‐ I am getting Fran’s name around my wedding finger as my engagement ring and as a sign of my love for her!
we are having a KARAOKE / DISCO engagement Party on 29th Jan 2010 ‐ (Karaoke was my idea!)
…..around 80 invited but catering for about 100
FUN…. and dancing…. and obviously drink and CELEBRATIONS!!!
Friday 1st July 2011
Well we are definately in control with this ‐ we already have chosen the Invitations and have bought THE DRESS and we are enjoying the planning ‐ so much so My Fiance is taking courses to learn to be a Wedding Planner and we intend to open a shop!
