Ashleigh and Rohan
How We Met: I can remember the day we met like it was yesterday, but it was the 7th of April 2010.
I started a new job working in an office, and he was one of the fitters in the workshop. I remember our introduction so clearly, and the feeling of being totally captivated from that very first second. I was 17, he was 21, and neither of us knew what love was; yet.
How He Asked: Fast forward almost five years to the day, and it was the moment I’d been waiting for.
I was always worried that I would secretly know before it happened, but he made sure I didn’t!
I got home from work on 1st April 2015, it was just another day, well so I thought. The door to our home office was closed, I thought it was unusual but wasn’t curious enough to investigate! Moments later I was being called in to the home office by the love of my life.
The lights were off, but there were candles everywhere. Beautiful lillies in vases sat on the desk (my favourite flowers) and a diamond engagement ring sitting inside a mirrored box. My favourite part was seeing Rohan all dressed up, looking as handsome as ever.
After the initial shock passed, I asked: “what’s all this!?” He took my hand and got down on one knee to ask me to marry him. My answer was simple: “about time!”
We knew that even though we had achieved so much as individuals, we were capable of so much more as a couple.
