Their Love Story:

Corne and Lee-ann met at a going away party for a mutual friend. He liked het from the get-go! and she was much less interested to put it plainly… then with time and friendship, she started becoming found of this young man, but now it was his turn to be uninterested… She then decided it was worth the wait, or even the fight, and gave it her best shot, to great reward: 10 months later, he was hers* the rest is history…

The Proposal:

she was waiting for the day he would pop the question, and when day by day went by without one… Lee-Ann decided she had enough guts to ask him.. “When are we getting married?” to the groom surprise he answered with a cunning “Why aren’t you wearing your ring?”

Not the most romantic proposal (the brides words herself) but it definitely got the ball rolling 🙂
