10 things I'd like to share about our wedding journey.

After celebrating 10 years of marriage in August this year it has been great to look back at our wedding planning journey and remember all of the things that were significant to us in the lead up to our wedding and how things came together on the day. In this series of Blog posts I would like to share with your 10 things about our wedding journey. This is not meant to be an educational post, I am simply sharing some personal moments with you as someone who has also been a bride on the same journey as yourself. I hope you enjoy learning a little bit about me and my family over the next 10 weeks.

Number 1. The proposal…

Scott and I had been together for 6 years before he proposed. 

I knew it was coming as we had been talking about it for a while and had recently taken the step to look at engagement rings together!

I found something beautiful and very me at Diamonds International in the city, which was a great experience and much easier than I had anticipated. With the ring picked out we made the joint decision to wait until we had some money saved before we bought it and made the official announcement to family and friends.

So it was a complete surprise when one night in his mothers lounge room he got down on one knee and presented me with a missive bunch of flowers and the exact engagement ring I had picked out, just a couple of weeks earlier.

Yes there were tears and it was seriously the loveliest surprise, considering I didn’t think I would get a surprise proposal at all.
