George and i met 3 years ago at a mutual friends wedding in Mauritius. We became best friends and after the wedding we had numerous visits at each other. We lived 310km apart and did quiet a bit of travelling. The live grew and grew stronger everyday and on the 27th of Decemeber 2017, George and i went for a walk on the beach at the family Villa in Hersham and there he went down on one knee on sunset and asked me to marry him. All my dreams came true and on the 1st of September the most perfect spring day ever we promised each other our forever
Oops, i was so excited to tell you that i mentioned it in the above statement.
George, myself, his brother Jan Sauer and his cousin Pierre all went down to Hersham december 2017 to the family villa. Late afternoon 27/12/2017 George mentioned he would like to go for a walk on beach as we will be going home in 2 days and had not put our feet on the beach yet. At the house there are stairs all the way to the beach but they are never ending!! Out of breath we eventually reached the sand. George then decided to that we need to walk n bit further. I was shocked as he was already out of breath but thought maybe he just wants some alone time so i tagged along. Not knowing what was coming.. The next minute he started shaking, ( cute giggle) i thought he was getting cold. Booom his down on his knee telling me, “ Liefie, ekt al my patrone by huis vergeet as ek gaan jag, maar my droom vrou se ring sal ek nooit vergeet nie, sal jy asb met my trou?” Super excited i pulled him up and just started hugging him. ( ps, we had the ring made months before and i couldnt believe that we had been on holiday for a week and a half already and he still didnt propose so i thought he forgot the ring..). Those never ending steps seemed like a breeze going back up because i went running up them to show his brother what had just happened!! All to my surprise he already knew. Wow while writing this i once again get tears in my eyes for that super special feeling ill never forget!
Every single moment of our wedding day is my favourite! We danced the night away. But the moment that i remember most and wish i could have that feeling everyday for the rest of my life. Reaching the top of the stairs with my dad, looking down at the man of my dreams, eyes filled with tears, tears of joy, tears of excitment, tears of emotions i cannot ever describe. That feeling was the most treasured feeling ever.
