Moira and David

How We Met: David and I have been together for 6 years, meeting in Perth, moving across the world to live in London and then back again to live in Sydney – mixed up with some long distance it is safe to say our relationship hasn’t been the normal one.

What makes it even more unique is that our house has been full of wedding dresses and magazines since our first date! Im not wedding obsessed (ok maybe a little bit!) but a wedding dress designer in Sydney.

How He Asked: We had just got in from work, snuggled up and talking about our future when he caught me completely off guard on one knee and a ring in his hands. He said that he loved the home we had created and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. Then the big words – ‘Will You Marry Me?’ I was so shocked it took me a while to squeal Yes!

The ring fit perfectly as he has slipped a ring from my other hand and measured it during the night! He then worked with a friend who creates incredible jewellery to pick a diamond and design the ring – all in top secret!

We had made plans for dinner at 6.30pm which he then revealed was really for 7.30pm so we had time to call my family in England and Ireland to share the good news! My Dad already knew as David had called the night before to ask permission.

David proposal was so personal, intimate and above all a huge surprise! Now to start on the wedding dress…
