We were on holiday in Egypt and we were going on a sunset cruise to dolphin watch. The boat had 3 decks and we all had a lovely meal and went to watch the dolphins. Dan took me up to the top deck, which was empty and we sat and watched the sunset, then kneeling down, he pulled the ring out of his pocket (he’d asked me if I’d marry him before but said he’d do it properly when he’d got me a ring) and he asked me to marry him.
We told our parents first and then our friends when we got back from holiday.
It’s a gold ring with a square diamond in the centre, beautiful!
Yes, Dan saw it first and then took me to see it to see if I liked it.
Yes we did.
It was held at a small local pub and hotel for family and friends.
We’re getting married on 13th June 2009
Absolutely everything! We started planning things and I’m loving it. Even Dan is getting quite involved and we’re really enjoying it.
Date of proposal 29/09/07 How old were you both when you got engaged? I was 24 and he was 34...
