Mary and Jonathan

J&A5

How We Met: I was celebrating my 22nd birthday with my friends in Cardiff when the lady behind the bar passed me a drink. I explained to her that I hadn’t ordered a drink and as I was doing so she pointed across the room to Jonathan and said that he had sent it over for me. I went over to thank him for the kind gesture and he asked if he could take me out on a date…

How He Asked: We were due to go to London on June 19th to attend Jonathan’s graduation as he had qualified as a lawyer. The night before we went he asked me if I would like to meet him in Cardiff bay, a place where we visited a lot when we were dating. When I met him that evening he was wearing the same suit he wore for our first date and I was wearing exactly the same dress I had worn. We were walking along the bay as it was such a beautiful evening when Jonathan said that he had a surprise for me and asked me to close my eyes… When I opened my eyes he was down on one knee with an open box in his hand which contained the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. Tears filled both of our eyes as I said “100 times yes!” We then enjoyed a delicious meal overlooking Penarth, the place where my Grandpa proposed to my Grandma 50 years ago.
