We’re Engaged!

Andrew and I are now engaged after he proposed last week and I, of course, said yes. It’s just over a year since we bought our house and we decided together we wanted to take the next step and get married.

We had already chosen my ring together, a sapphire surrounded by a halo of diamonds set in white gold, which I absolutely love but Andrew really wanted to surprise me with a romantic proposal. We had a trip to London planned so Andrew took the opportunity to book tickets to the Shard for one evening. We got there around 7pm and watched the sun go down over London, which was incredible to see. Andrew surprised me with a glass of champagne and we watched London all lit up below us before he got down on one knee.

I’ll admit I had an inkling he was going to propose (I’m really glad I got my nails done!) but I was still surprised, and a bit emotional, when he finally asked the question. I was pleased the Shard was quiet by that time so we didn’t have an audience and we had a corner, with a gorgeous view of Tower Bridge, to ourselves.


Our friends and family have been so lovely with lots of congratulations, presents, and cards. We’re planning our wedding for around two years time and we’re both so excited for it.
