The Beginning

“We met through a mutual friend Aimee and we sealed the deal on a night out in Portlaoise in February 2008 :)”

The Proposal

“We were on the east coast of Sri Lanka relaxing after doing a bit of travelling. When we are anywhere we usually get up to see the sunrise but on this occasion I didn’t really want to. Stephen persuaded me to get up! On the way down to the adjoining beach, the hotel had set up the beach walkway with big hearts in fairy lights and love hearts in shells on the beach. They were also setting up for a champagne breakfast in the water…. I didn’t think anything of it and just said to Steve “oh look someone must be having breakfast on the beach…” On the walk down the beach, the sun was rising and Stephen got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was really shocked and in tears. Afterwards, we ate breakfast floating in the Indian ocean. It was very romantic!”
