Me and H2B had been friends for a few years. He knew all about my previous abusive marriage and the crap relationship that followed after that and he was totally ok with the fact that I was still married at the point of getting together and had an 11 and 7 year old.
He unofficially proposed to me back in November 2016 but I told him to come back when he had a ring lol.
We was visiting some venues one Saturday in January 2017 to get an idea of was on offer, even though I had decided what venue I wanted already. My best friend who is also my MOH had arranged all the visits and came with us along with my daughter. She deliberately made sure we visited my dream venue last. Little did I know that they was in on the secret proposal that was about to happen.
We had just finished viewing our dream venue, which was covered in snow and looked amazing and my youngest kept going on about going upstairs with her as there was something she had to show me and kept mentioning that Andrew (my H2B) had a surprise for me.
Me and my daughter started to go up the stairs and all of a sudden I heard Andrew tell me to stop and turn around and there he was on one knee. I almost fell down the stairs at this point as my foot slipped lol. He asked me to marry him and then gave me the most amazing ring! Me, Andrew and my daughter started crying and hugging and my best friend had caught it all on camera and was crying too. It may not be romantic to some people but to me it was amazing
