How We Met
Rob and I met when we were 14years old at secondary school. Rob had moved from another town so was bought into school a year after me. Rob and I very quickly became friends, and would hang out all the time. I would go home and tell my mum that I had a best friend and it was a BOY! I couldn’t believe it! After a few months, Rob worked up the courage and asked me to be his girlfriend (that’s what you did at 14!) and I said “yea, sure!”. I remember going home and telling my mum I was worried about ruining our friendship, but my mum was amazing and said to me “Hannah, you said yes for a reason, remember that” and we have been together for 12 strong years now!
how they asked
11 happy years later, Rob and I decided to go on holiday. We had the most amazing trip planned where we stayed in Iceland for 3 nights then went on to New York for 4 nights. In Iceland, we had loads of trips planned, but as the weather was bad some of them got cancelled, including our Northern Lights Trip. We carried on with our Blue Lagoon trip, and we were amazed at how naturally beautiful this place was, just utterly breath taking. We were heading back to our coach collection point and realised we had about 30mins spare before our coach arrived. We noticed we could take a walk around some of the lagoon that was preserved, so we started walking and we were totally alone. We stopped to look at the gorgeous scenery and Rob said to me, “oh why don’t you take a picture” so I got my phone out and snapped away. As I turned around to show him the picture, he was on one knee holding up the most beautiful ring I had ever seen. I dropped my phone in shock, and just kept saying “oh my god” over and over again! I pulled him off the ground and gave him the biggest hug, and he then whispered in my ear “erm Hannah, you haven’t given me an answer yet…” so I screamed “YES!” and he put the ring on my finger. I was the happiest person on the planet, and the fact that I am marrying my best friend of 12 years, just fills my heart with so much happiness. It is a moment I will never forget, and I know he wont either. Rob truly is the love of my life.
