How We Met

We met on a dating website in January 2015, met in person in February 2015, and starting dating in march 2015, and we have very happily been dating ever since! We just have so much in common and get on so well, we knew early on that we wanted to get married and share our lives together.

How He Asked

We hadn’t been spending a lot of time together, so Jesse asked me to book out a Saturday, so we could go for lunch together. I just thought we were going for lunch and I was quite excited about having a nice relaxing afternoon together, just the two of us. But little did I know that he had planned a surprise proposal at the beautiful Gidleigh Park on the edge of Dartmoor.

It was the most amazing moment of my life, we walked through a stunning woodland to a bridge at the entrance of the hotel and the sun was shining through the trees. It was so romantic, and yes he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I burst into tears, I couldn’t believe it was actually happening!!!! Of course I said YES through my tears of joy.

But not only did he propose to me, he also invited my daughter Liberty and my closest friends and family to the venue to share this special moment and celebrate with. It wouldn’t have been the same without Liberty.

Jesse had organised a champagne reception on the lawn and an amazing 6 course lunch in a private dining room which was out of this world. The food was sooo delicious and the champagne was flowing. It was so lovely having my friends and family there with us. It was a mini engagement party.

This alone made me so happy I was going to marry Jesse! He is just thoughtful in every way and always remembers the tiny little things I say.
