The Proposal

"We were on a holiday at Fraser Island with James' family. One morning we got up and went for a drive along the beach and stopped at one of our favourite spots. James told me he wanted to go to the top of this mountain to try out his new drone; so I went up with him. After about 10 minutes we decided to head back. As we walked down the hill holding hands with the drone following us, I noticed his family gathered together on the beach around a beautiful set up of rose petals and champagne. It still didn't hit me what was actually happening until we were back on the beach and I turned around to see James on one knee. It was the biggest surprise of my life, and of course I said YES!"

The Ring

"We had all of our rings made at Class A Jewellers. James designed my engagement ring, and he did such an amazing job - it's my dream ring! It is a 1.13 carat solitaire diamond, sent in platinum with a yellow gold band. For my wedding ring I chose a yellow gold band, with diamonds set half way around - it partners perfectly with my engagement ring. For James' ring he chose a gold signet ring. We got it engraved by the London Engraver, with a design we created - which is two J's for each of our names."

Favourite Moment

"My wedding day was definitely the best day of my life, having all our family and friends together to celebrate our love. The ceremony was the most special part for me, it was beautiful and full of emotions. During the ceremony there were storm clouds brewing which really added to the atmosphere. Then straight after our first kiss as husband and wife, it started to pour down with rain - it was really special!"
