Shauna and Ryan grew up together, spending all their time teaching and training at the Tae Kwon Do academy where they met. Over time they got closer and their friendship blossomed into love.
He asked Shauna to marry him after having dinner together to celebrate their anniversary. He seemed a little off during the meal, which actually annoyed Shauna – she didn’t realise he was nervous!
After dinner he took her to the location where they were first allowed to play out as children without their parents and he got down on one knee and proposed! He gave her the perfect engagement ring – it’s exactly what she would have chosen, a platinum ring with a diamond in a twisted setting. He’d spent a whole day searching for a ring he knew Shauna would love.
They were engaged for just over three years and married in a military wedding with a Cadbury purple colour scheme.
