How We Met

Poppy was my first puppy love in high school. We broke up and didn’t keep in touch for about 12 years. I moved to Australia, and I saw her photo in Hyde Park in Sydney, and I straight away messaged her & took her for hot chocolate the next day. We talked until the cafe closed! So she came to Australia to study, but also to see me again. We have been inseparable ever since, and that was 8.5 years ago.

How They Asked

Poppy had arranged a surprise birthday weekend getaway, and “a few events throughout”. The day started with a 90mins massage, a nice lunch at Glebe then checked in to Shangri-la. I was so surprised with the hotel, as I thought it was going to be an Airbnb kinda getaway. She let me believe we were going for a horror tour before dinner, but when we arrived at Kirribilli I thought it was a historical tour of the bridge as it was the bridge’s 90th birthday weekend. And she led me to this hidden park with a “Marry Me” sign!
