A ROOFTOP PROPOSAL IN BARCELONA!
By Hannah Wiggins, November 2022
We met in a bar on Castle Street. We had a lot of mutual friends and our families all grew up together and knew each other well but we hadn’t crossed paths yet. We had the best first date and drunkenly agreed to a dog walk the following day to cure our hangovers.
How funny! Now, tell us about the proposal! Dominic how did you feel, were you nervous at all or quietly confident? And Emma was it a total surprise for you?
Dominic - It was something I knew I wanted to do for a few years but we’ve been saving to buy our first home which we finally moved into in April. I wasn’t nervous on the buildup although the nerves started kicking in on the way to Barcelona knowing the ring was in my pocket. I did get nervous as I was setting the camera up and pulling the ring out but marriage is something we’ve always spoken about so I was quietly confident in what the answer would be.
Emma - It was a complete shock, but a good shock. I just couldn’t believe it was happening, everything went slow and felt dream like.
Emma - I honestly couldn’t have chosen better myself. I’ve loved Wongs for years and always looked in the windows in awe. It’s the perfect ring, it’s classic. I can’t stop staring at it! I just can’t believe he chose THE ring!
Emma - Firstly, I’ve never fully understand the saying cloud 9 until now. That’s exactly where we have been!
Realistically our wedding will be in 2/3 years, however I have started the spreadsheets, I may have booked into a dress shop, I may have enquired about a few venues…
Dominic - I’m just happy to be able to talk about it without having to throw Emma off the scent that I’m about the propose. But we’re looking forward to the next couple of years of planning!
