Lauren has a lifelong dread of public proposals, and Alex knew this so he planned a more intimate proposal at home.
They’d just bought a place of their own and were celebrating their first Christmas there when Lauren opened a huge box under the tree. A balloon reading ‘will you marry me?’ flew out, and Alex got down on one knee.
After swearing a little bit in shock, Lauren remembered to say yes. The engagement ring couldn’t have been more perfect – Alex’s jeweller grandfather made it before he passed away and the ring has a beautiful, romantic legacy. Lauren can’t stop staring at it, and feels privileged to wear it.
