How did your love story begin?


Well we met at club hockey practice. When ever the club had a party I would try my very best to look super just to get noticed by him. At this one spisific party I noticed he had a girlfriend. I felt so dissapointed. A few months went by and I heard through a friend that his relationship has ended with the other girl. Eventually we ended up in playing squash together and attending parties. It was just before new years when I realized if Im not going to ask him to one of my friends parties, I will never know if its ment to be or not. So I gather as much guts to ask him and he agreed. So it all started out a bit stiff but eventually just before midnight we kissed. From that moment I knew I cant give up on this guy. Wr tried going on dated but he has a daughter which made dating a bit difficuilt at times but we ended in getting married and are now a happy married family.

Tell us all about the proposal.


As our first kiss was on the 31st of December 2014 he asked me to marry him on the 31st of December 2015. It was so cute he sent his daugter in with a bunch of roses and a card
She then said, daddy wants to know if you will marry him and ran out of the room ( she's verry shy)
Then he entered the room went down on one knee and asked me if I will marry him and his daugther, I replied yes and he slipped the ring onto my finger

Magical Moments


On our wedding day it rain most of the day. Our wedding was supposed to start at 4 and I prommised that I will not be late.
Unfortunately or shall I say fortunately the minister was late giving some extra time. It was only noticed that the minister was not present 10 minutes before I had to leave the guest house for the seremony.
Just as I arrived it stopped raining and we were able to have the outdoors seremony we wanted
