I've just got engaged!!! Wanted to say hi!

Hi girls

I just want to share my excitement and introduce myself!!

My name is Rachel and H2B is Phil. We live in Warrington Cheshire

We went to London at the weekend and he'd arranged a private pod onboard the London Eye!!

As we moved i stil didn't have a clue what was happening!! We had our own private waiter who served us champagne and we walked around looking at the amazing views.

The pods either side of us were waving and taking photos - think they thought we was someone special, as they were all cramed into there pods like sardines!!

We got to the top and then Phil was saying how much i ment to him and how much he loved me.

Then the penny then dropped and i knew what was about to happen!!!!!

He got down on one knee, held out the rock of Gibrolta (ring) and asked if i'd spend the rest of my life with him........

Screaming i said YES!!!

I was in complete shock!!!

The pods either side of us were waving and clapping and still taking photos!

As we got off everybody in the quee was cheering and shouting! - it was an odd situation!!

I called my mum and dad and they knew all about it. Phil had asked them in june for there permission!!!

Sorry for my ramble i just wanted to share it!!


i'll try and load some photos

    Welcome and congratulations!!!!!

    Wow what a rock lol image bet you are so excited and can't stop smiling.

    This site is great, you'll pick up loads of tips and support and it's just a great way of being excited without boring your loved ones to death (though I still did that for 18 months!!!)


    PS. Sorry not great with making pics smaller

    I nearly cried reading about your proposal, your so lucky. My h2b proposed in my parents kitchen!!

    Have fun with all your planning

  • rachxxukrachxxuk Posts: 1,230
    hehehe i'm so excited to get replies!!

    Thanx girls

    it is a rock and i keep catching it on everything!

    It's really odd having a ring on that finger.

    I.ve never worn anything on that finger so it's really strange!!

    Did any of you girls feel that way?

  • rachxxukrachxxuk Posts: 1,230

    I nearly cried reading about your proposal, your so lucky. My h2b proposed in my parents kitchen!!

    Have fun with all your planning


    aww thank you hun

    i was crying too when it was all happening!!!

    i'm still high as a kite on colud 9!!

    can't wait to start planning!

    Where do you start!
  • TABSukTABSuk Posts: 1,479
    Definately, I didn't wear any rings so it felt so odd but I loved looking down at it sparking image

    Have you set a date?

    One tip, make sure you get it insured, I had a nighmare the month after he'd propsed, thought I'd lost it and we hadn't go round to getting it insured. I ended up finding it where I left it in the bathroom, suffice to say h2b had it put on the house insurance that night!

  • rachxxukrachxxuk Posts: 1,230

    Yeah we need to do that def!!

    Thank you i'll get onto it now.

    I'm paranoid i'm going to lose it or the diamond ill fallout!!

    Think we are looking at 2010.

    got a mates wedding this yr and a mates next yr so don't want to steal there yrs so i'll settle for 2010 - will give us time to save.

    I really like the idea a winter wedding but nothing has been said yet

  • TABSukTABSuk Posts: 1,479
    Ooops, meant to say hubby! (it's only been a month so keep forgetting lol)

    That sounds like a plan, will give you plenty of time and a winter wedding sounds fab! It's all so exciting when you start planning, I'm smiling for you image

  • KpeacockukKpeacockuk Posts: 351
    Congratulations! What a fab proposal and one you will never forget! Planning starts here and it is so much fun.......When are you thinking of getting married?

  • KpeacockukKpeacockuk Posts: 351
    Oh whoops didnt read your last post so i can see your thinking of 2010....me too 31/07/2010 x

    Oh whoops didnt read your last post so i can see your thinking of 2010....me too 31/07/2010 x

    oh great we can plan together!!!

    I really like the idea of whites and candles and big tall candelabras.

    Plus the weather is going it's always raining in the summer lately and it's been nice and sunny in oct/nov the last few yrs!!

  • KpeacockukKpeacockuk Posts: 351
    Well we are getting married at the Lakes so it is highly likely it will rain. I'll be gutted but i am just going to convince myself that it will rain and if it doesnt then that will be a bonus!

    Yeah i am having white flowers but hints of black and green. The new confetti catalogue has inspired me! Its worth a look if you havnt seen it has some great ideas and themes.

    How sweet!? Congratulations.

    I too got engaged recently but it really wasn't romantic as we were both half cut - I think it was my H2B's way of plucking up the courage to actually do it. Luckily we both remembered the next morning.

    I have also set a date 2010 in June as it will be easier to save etc. Let me know how your planning goes ...
