On the 1st of September, my beloved asked me to marry him and I said yes! He is the man I completely love and adore, the one I want to spend the rest of my life with; my answer could only have been yes! He chose sunset at Sublime Point road in Leura to propose and it was so beautiful, romantic and a moment I will always treasure. I’ll never forget the way I felt when he asked me to be his wife; it was the most magical, breathtaking moment of my life.
The first photo was taken on the balcony of our room on Hamilton Island a few weeks ago. The second is my beautiful engagement ring (and our hands entwined) and the third was taken not long after my wonderful FiancÃ© proposed. Another couple had walked down to the lookout and offered to take our photo together which was lovely timing.
Squeeee! x 5 trillion zillion and into infinity. I’m engaged to the most wonderful, handsome, intelligent, amazing and talented man in the universe and I absolutely love and adore him!! :cupid: :heartbeat:

:heartbeat: :heartbeat: :heartbeat: :heartbeat:
Congratulations!!!! You look really happy and I’m so happy for you! :D
Congrats! I’m very very happy for you both! May you be as happy as I am with my hubby!
Awwww, big congrats, dear!
…so, are you going to make your blog private now so he can’t read it and we’ll get all the juicy dress-deciding details?
YAY I am sooooo happy for both of you
Aw, thanks so much everyone (both here and on Flickr) for your wonderful messages!
Erich – He can see the decision process and possibly the chosen dress, just not me wearing it until the day itself. hehe :)
Hiya lysh, I did promise to send some websites your way, so if you haven’t found them already, these are some of the sites that guided me through the madness that is wedding planning:
First and best of them is http://www.indiebride.com – the forums section (kvetch) is amazing. It has everything, particularly a (relatively) cool and smart community.
http://www.weddingbee.com/ is sort of a wedding portal/blog. I haven’t been there in months, but it’s not a bad place to just browse through and get ideas from.
http://manolobrides.com/ is another one.
Australian wedding portals:
Australian Celebrants: http://www.civilcelebrants.com.au/
the Knot bios list: http://bios.magnificentbliss.com/ – The Knot is like this mega wedding site in the states, and many of the members make these elaborate bios about the planning process and actual wedding, and are great for ideas and inspiration, that sort of thing.
DIY bride: http://www.diybride.com
That’s it for now.
Oh my goodness!!! Congratulations!! I haven’t been by your blog in quite a while, so what wonderful news this is to find on my return!!! Fantastic news!!
Suyin – Oooh, thanks so much for those links. I’d only come across two of those so we can have some fun reading the new ones! Indiebride sounds very good, I’ve looked at a few forums but none seemed worth joining, this one sounds like it might be.
We’re still at the stage of trying to get the guest list in order. Oh it will be nice when that bit is done! hehe :cheerful:
Linda – Thanks very much! Yes, my life has changed a lot since my old weblog. He’s a very special man and I love him to bits! :lovestruck:
