Danny and I have been together for 5 years and in February he took me on a complete surprise trip to Iceland! He had been planning a big proposal for the last 6 months, including sneaking off to Hatton Garden to custom design my beautiful ring. We arrived in Iceland and were greeted by a gentleman who picked us up and transported us 2 and half hours to a beautiful house situated in the middle of nowhere, which is where we would stay for the next few days. At this point I had no idea what was going on and what was in store for me, it was all a shock. A lovely cook then came over and cooked us an amazing 3 course meal. After the meal we took a walk around our house and Danny had secretly propped his camera up to record the whole moment when got down on one knee and proposed to me! It was a complete surprise and such a wonderful private moment… I couldn’t stop crying! My ring was so beautiful and it fit perfectly. It was literally everything I’ve wanted but it just looked so stunning on my finger! I couldn’t believe he had designed it and handpicked the diamonds all by himself, and that he had done this all in secret, including asking for my parents blessing!
Iceland was like a fairy tale, he had planned every small detail of the trip, from our private day excursions with a fantastic company in Iceland to each dinner reservation. We were staying opposite the volcano that erupted in 2010 and we took a trip in a 4 by 4 up to the top to see the glacial crater. We saw the gorgeous waterfalls and walked between two tectonic plates. We even caught a glimpse of the northern lights and saw some shooting stars. It was all breath taking! And now I have my beautiful ring to look at every day with the biggest smile on my face.
