We were childhood sweethearts, we lived and grew up in the same street.
Richard proposed to Leonie while backpacking together for five months around South East Asia. One evening whilst staying on a deserted Cambodian island in the Thai Gulf, Richard had secretly arranged a candle lit dinner at the end of a jetty.
Richard led Leonie blindfolded from their beach shack down the shoreline and to the foot of the jetty at sun set. The jetty was lined with tea lights and at the head was a table for two, with a white table cloth, silver cutlery, a bottle of bubbly on ice and Michael Bubble playing on a portable speaker.
Once Leonie was seated Richard proceeded to get down on one knee, presented the ring and popped the question.
It took 14 months.
It was very sentimental to us both and Leonie’s family; the last 40 years of special occasions have been held here. And Richard has been present at these for the last 12 years.
We both love Christmas!
Her track record.
It was DIY, everything homemade.
It was a satin, fishtail dress.
A long tail navy suit.
We had photos of parents and grandparents on their wedding days.

The starter was pâté, the main was roast chicken and seasonal veg, and the dessert was sticky toffee pudding with vanilla ice-cream.
A three-tiered cake; one fruit cake, one chocolate, one Victoria sponge.

All of it!
Plan it over 24 months, not 14 months.
