Rachel and Chris

Chris and I met at a social gathering about two years ago and we had been dating for just over a year when we got engaged in February this year. The proposal that Chris had planned for me was absolutely amazing. He told all of my family and friends and me that he had won a movie competition through the radio station zm. And that we could invite 80 of our closest family and friends to watch this movie with us.

So we made a Facebook event and made a post to what movie people would like to watch. So the night of the movie I hadn’t seen Chris all day because he was planning everything which I couldn’t understand because I thought zm should be doing it all not him. So I showed up to the movies and Chris and I had special seating for us so we all sat down and the whole movie cinema was packed with us and 80 of our closest friends and family.

Just before the movie starts to play Chris says to me would you like some chocolate and I said no your going to miss the movie if you leave now but he went out anyway. This is the amazing part a home video starts to play and I was thinking at this stage he’s going to miss the start of the movie to go and buy chocolate. So this film starts playing and it was Chris and my two friends talking to each other while sitting at a restaurant talking about how he is going to propose to me.

So he then sets off in this video on a journey and he goes to my house asks my dad for his permission to marry me then picks up Mac Donald’s on the way (I’m a bit of a fan haha) and as we are watching the movie it shows Chris walking up the cinema starts to get into the entrance and the whole cinema goes black and I’m crying at this stage and Chris walks in with Mac Donald’s in his hand wearing a nice suit walks up to where I’m sitting and gets down on one knee and pulls out the ring and asks me to marry him!
