After meeting on match.com and sharing their first date at a cocktail bar, followed by dinner at Pizza Express, Danielle and Matt quickly became inseparable.
The pair had been together for just under two years when they visited Prague for a romantic city break. They left early in the morning, and Danielle noted that Matt was being particularly annoying as he wouldn’t let her open the curtains and was edgy about her looking into the garden.
They started to drive towards the airport when Matt asked Danielle to pull over. He then blindfolded her and walked her back into the house. They went upstairs and he finally opened the curtains! ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran was playing when Matt removed the blindfold, and Danielle could see into the garden, where he’d spelt out ‘Will you marry me?’ in fairy lights.
When she turned around, Matt was down on one knee with a platinum ring, featuring a round-cut diamond solitaire. She said yes and the couple finally head off to Prague to celebrate their engagement! After finding a great deal for the Mercure Great Danes hotel, the pair planned their entire wedding in just five months.
