Tell us about your love story and proposal…
We met at a mutual friend’s house party. You could say it was love at first sight. I thought he was really cute and made the first move (on the dance floor) – the rest is history!
The setting of the proposal was Valentine’s Day at a ‘pop up restaurant’ created by Daniel at my house (candles, rose petals, 3 course dinner and all). Daniel had written me 7 letters leading up to St. Valentine’s day describing 7 reasons why he loves me. Each letter had a riddle and on the back of the last letter it read ‘now there is only one thing left to do’ and that’s when he got down on one knee and proposed! The moment was surreal, I was in shock and before I could say yes I said ‘What?!’
What was your wedding day highlight?
It might cliche, but it really is true. I will never forget the moment just before and when i walked down the aisle – my arms well full of pins and needles and my legs literally jelly. Seeing Daniel waiting there for me was one of the happiest moments ever.
Word of advice to other couples?
The journey is just as important as the destination so enjoy it and don‘t forget to have fun – after all it‘s a celebration of your love and the two of you.
