Emilie had moved into a new flat-share, and first met Allan at a party in her new flat. Conversation (and drinks) flowed, and Emilie tried to determine his interest in her by moving from room to room to see if he followed!
They exchanged numbers and the rest was history. After three and a half years together, Emilie began to think about marriage, but wasn’t sure if Allan’s mind was on the same things.
The couple, who live in France, returned to Allan’s native Scotland for a trip, and visited Arran, a place that is special to Allan. Whilst on a hike Allan asked Emilie to marry him! He hadn’t bought a ring, so he presented her with a ring made from branches he’d twisted into shape.
It was the most beautiful present Emilie had ever received, although she now wears a ring Allan chose and bought in London, the place they first met and lived together.
