BarBAEdos 19 - Our Barbados wedding
I am a long time reader of this forum, so thought I would bite the bullet and create my own planning thread at last!
How we met
Me and my H2b have actually known each other for over 10 years and were introduced when I was around 16. He was in my best friends brothers set of friends. We actually met in of all places .. Tiger Tiger .... don't judge me
Nothing happened between us for years. It was one of those were it was just never the right time for one of us. Fast forward to 2014, all of my friends were away in Las Vegas and I was bored at home on a Saturday. He said he was in a local bar and I should come and join him.... so I did and the rest is history
We had been discussing being married for a while so I knew a proposal was coming... it was just a matter of when.
Now my darling H2B is not usually the romantic type (his mums a florist and I think I have recieved 2 bunches of flowers in near 4 years) so one random Monday night in July when I came home to a massive bunch of red roses I should have been a little suspicious! but I was completely unaware of what was happening. After he gave me the flowers I popped on GOT as you do... he told me to pause it for a second as he had something to show me.
As I love GOT I was slightly annoyed but I paused none the less. He then passed me a photo album at this point I am thinking What the hell is going on. I looked through and all the photos were of me and him at our fave places and from our past holidays which were really lovely!
the last photo however was a photo of us together at his cousins wedding which was the year prior. I flicked over the page and the next page he has written a note which said ..... Our Wedding???
He then pulled out the big black box and I certainly knew what was happening now.
I am totally in love with my ring!!! He defiantly listened to my not so little hints about wanting a pear shape. He went with my mum to Hatton Garden and had it made by a guy that my mum has know for years which makes it even more special.
The ring is a pear shaped 1.5 carat diamond with a diamond halo set in platinum.
