Lissy and Ramsay
How We Met
We are your typical childhood sweethearts – we met at 15 in our highschool band, our first date was a trip to the cinema, and we’ve basically been inseparable ever since.
How He Asked
On our 8 year anniversary we took a picnic on Ramsay’s boat to the secluded weir you can only get to on boat. It was the spot we used to go to when we were young. We set up our picnic in the field alongside the river. He’d brought a bottle of Prosecco and strawberries and we lay down in the sun and talked about our relationship over the years. I told him that it was the happiest I’d ever felt.
After a few glasses of prosecco he asked me to stand up, gave me a hug and started talking about how the past 8 years had been the happiest of his life, and he wanted to spend the rest of it by my side. I was shaking by this point and I was sure he could feel my heart beating as I guessed what was happening.
He smiled, took my hand and dropped down on one knee and opened a ring box with the most beautiful simple diamond ring inside. I was so happy and shocked I immediately burst into tears and started laughing. Of course I said yes!
We called our families and they were so happy!
