How did you two meet? Tell us your story.
We met while back-packing through Europe during the summer of 2010 at a hostel in Greece. We decided to travel together for a few days after that and island hopped through Greece. We both happened to be moving to London after the summer. We started dating in London, lived there for about a year and then moved to Vancouver in February 2012. We’ve been living here ever since.
Describe the proposal.
Proposal was a big surprise! I was drinking my coffee in bed one weekend morning (which is my favourite thing to do) and Robbie surprised me with a vintage engagement ring I had seen online a few months previously. The ring was from Australia so he had had it sent to his parents place who then sent it to him. I think his mum was happy to be involved and get to see the ring up close first. I have never met her before the wedding so it was nice she got to be a part of the whole proposal and share in the excitement.
