    Tim Dyer and Jodie Smith

    Tim and Jodie are from Warwick. They’ve been together for 6 years and got engaged on the beach in Fuerteventura. Here’s their engagement story…

    “We jetted off on little family holiday to Fuerteventura in June 2013. At the time, I was about 5 months pregnant with our daughter. On the first full day, Tim insisted we go to the famous La Olivia beach. I was sat relaxing in the sun when Tim and our son went to fill up a bucket with water to make a sandcastle. As they crept back over to me, both holding the bucket and looking very suspicious, I thought they were to trying to get me soaked! But as they got closer, I realised that the bucket was empty and in the bottom was a box. Tim then nervously got down on one knee and propsed. I was in total shock and just kept saying “oh my god” and “is this really happening”. Happy memories!”

    James Hawkins and Emma Spavins

    James & Emma
    James and Emma live in Essex. They’ve been together for 4 years and got engaged in front of the castle at Disneyland Paris. Here’s their engagement story…

    “Just a couple of weeks after our 4-year anniversary, James whisked me away to Paris for a long weekend in Disneyland, a place I have fond memories of as I worked there some years before. After a restless night through excitement (for me) and nerves (for James), we went to the park. We walked around the excitedly before heading to the castle to take some photos. A this point, James insisted on asking staff members to take the photos of us and disappeared to find somebody to help. I just wanted anyone to take the pictures, so was getting annoyed! We’d had a few photos taken when James turned to me, placed his hands on my cheeks, and said “you know how much I love you”, before dropping down on one knee to ask if I’d marry him in true fairytale style. My heart stopped for a second, tears streamed down my face. I nodded frantically and just about managed to get the words out and say “YES”. I leant down to kiss him while onlookers applauded. As I stood back up, he presented me with a beautiful ring. After another massive hug and more applause, we walked away with the biggest smiles on our faces!”

    Jody Williamson and Norma Douglas

    Jody & Norma 3
    Jody and Norma live in Edinburgh. They met in Tenerife, and he proposed at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Here’s their engagement story…
    “On a recent trip to America, we planned a trip to the Grand Canyon, where Norma surprised me with a helicopter tour to the bottom of the Canyon. Little did she know I was waiting for the perfect moment to pop the question, so when we had 30 minutes to explore the Canyon, I asked her to marry me and she said yes. I was the happiest man alive. On the return journey she didn’t see much of the scenery as she was staring at her new, shiny ring with a huge smile on her face!”
