Madeleine and Rhys

How We Met

We met when we were both attending the same barista course. The moment I saw him I fell in love and made it my mission to get his number. I don’t think I paid attention to anything that was said during the course, I was just focusing on him the whole time. The coffee that I made was dreadful, but I met my soulmate.

How He Asked

We were visiting the English countryside during our trek across Europe. Rhys suggested we go for a walk, as we often did. At the halfway point of our usual route, Rhys led me through a secret path with blossoming flowers and vibrant greenery. We climbed an old fence and on the other side was the most amazing view of the whole village. As we stood atop the hill, Rhys got down on one knee, just as it started raining lightly and held my hands as he professed his love for me. With tears welling in my eyes and his, he pulled out a ring box from his pocket and asked me those 4 words that I had hoped to hear from him since the day I met him. “Will you marry me?” Of course, I said yes.
