A proposal sets the first step on a couple’s journey towards becoming husband and wife. From the carefully planned to the totally spontaneous, we love hearing about the various ways people have popped the question. This summer our very own Sally Jacks said ‘I do!’ so of course we wanted to hear all the gossip about her own engagement story!
“At last!” everyone shouted when we announced our engagement last year. It was Sunday the 16th of August at the beautiful Mitton Hall surrounded by 135 family and friends.
We didn’t want a big engagement party and so used Frankie Jack’s 1st birthday and Christening day to break the news.
Gary proposed on August the 1st 2015 in Marbella at the Kempinski hotel. He’d booked a spa massage for me in the afternoon. Grandpa and Granny looked after Frankie Jack for the evening. It had taken him a long time to choose where to pop the question and he’d found a private dining experience for two.
We arrived to be greeted by our private waitress for the evening and sat watching the sun go down with my favourite champagne. That’s when I knew something was up, I never have my favourite, as it’s always too expensive, but this was a special night.
It was so romantic, which Gary and I aren’t usually. I could tell after all these years he was still nervous about asking.
His question… “will you be the next Mrs Bradley?”
I thought, well who’s been the first? I couldn’t believe he’d said this and was not even down on one knee!
It was a fabulous night and that’s when we decided when we’d marry; we’d love it to be at the Kempinski. Little did we know the stress and worry they would throw at us when preparing for the most wonderful day of our lives. But that’s a whole other story!”
